    Default clearys

    Very sad news about the iconic clearys swiftly shutting there doors, many staff spent a lifetime there to be told go home that is it gone...
    clearys is a landmark im pretty sure many have met someone under clearys clock, the window disply at chirstmas i remember as a kid going there on the 8th of December when we go to Dublin to see santa clearys santa been the best,

    is this closure down to the disintegration of dublin main street, which has our history deeply ingrained down to the bullet holes in the gpo, i moved to dublin some time again and the vast difference between o connell street then and now and even my childhood is vast..

    today a once thriving street with its beauitful buildings has become a playground for junkies dealers beggers and homeless.. fast food pound shops taking over closed stores the once beauitful buildings becoming grubby shabby, ann summers is now the most high class store..

    are we to be surprised its become a mecca for junkies when they stuck a needle in the middle of it?

    homelessness drug use are issues people must go somewhere... but offering housing if we had does not work until these issues become mental health issue the garda have lost control if they remove them there bitched at and can only move them on there not enough garda to police dublin dont mind o connell street..
    i saw tourist taken pictures on the quays trying awkardly to find some angle which didnt have a junkie..

    clearys survived the easter rising but it could not survive this government and wave of social issues we have created. so much for big recovery our tds are telling us we have

    seems dublin of the rare auld times is dying
    Freddo bars are now 50 cent! Has Fred grown up... gotten a mortgage and thinks he can take liberties??

    Good Morning.

    Yes very sad to see what has happened to Clearys.Like a lot of people that shop was more then just a shop.It was a place to meet and as you said when i was i kid i loved the christmas window.It was when christmas started.

    The whole street is gone to shite,i don't like having to walk down it at night and i will be tonight.I get such a bad feeling when im on it.I hope they get their fingers out and sort it out for the 2016.

    i regularly pass the faminie statues on the quays
    I've seen needles littered near them all day a big group of junkies who stare you down...
    do you know junkies get free bus passes they all dont live in town, i used to laugh at papers dealers on every corner well now adays might not be every corner but ive seen opened dealing
    look at the grand canal dock few junkies few homeless now thriving with tourism hussle and bussle of business

    we can't and should not just look the other way on these matters and throw of the kids gloves with these people and focous on the issue of addiction and mental health amd take responsibility for the social mess we are creating

    ive read a book called freakeconmics was remind of it by orange is the new black, its chapter where have the crimnal all gone discussed how abortion been introduced reduce crime 20 years after it been legal, as the unwanted children growing up in poverty abused etc where not there to commit crime. the whole point was social economic problems become generational,
    we almost encourage been a single mother get a baby get a house.. we have created a dependent society who lscks responsibility those junkies at those statues will have kids.... and they will mostly like be standing there in 20 years.. its a very complex matter to handle but fucking money and free bus passes at it aint going make it go away but put it further under our noses

    So Annabel - what other uniforms have you got ?

    Maybe a visit to you could be like inspector Clouseau and his sidekick Kato

    Clerys used to be an iconic store- but in recent years it would be the last big store you would think of to get something. I thought it was the big store for the Northsiders and few Southsiders went there.

    Was it not a bit old fashioned? Then there was the flood damage and it closed for a while.

    I haven't read about it but who gains out of this - developers?

    Who owns it? Is it some American or other ?
