Dublin’s Grafton St to be repaved


The capital’s principal shopping thoroughfare, Grafton Street, is to be repaved by Dublin City Council at a cost of about €2.5 million.



The existing red-brick paving is to be removed in a phased-basis, beginning next January, and replaced with grey and pink granite paving, which the council has described as “calm and understated”.



The pedestrianised street’s old paving stones will be replaced from the junction of Nassau St and Suffolk St, opposite the Molly Malone statue, to St Stephen’s Green North at the top of the street.



The council claims that the Eurobrick paving, which was laid in the mid- 1980s, has deteriorated and needs constant repair.



The work is the first in a series of improvements planned by the council for the area around Grafton St.



The street has been immortalised in books such as James Joyce’s “Dubliners”, poems by Patrick Kavanagh, songs by Bagatelle and The Script, and it featured prominently in the Oscar-winning film “Once” in 2006.
