It's a great site for a TGI McScratchy's Goodtime Fooddrinkery

Urban cultural preservation, Irish style:

[Irish Times] Dublin City Council has denied planning permission for a McDonald's restaurant in Temple Bar. The proposed development had met resistance from groups such as An Taisce and the Temple Bar Cultural Trust who argued that its construction would detract from the cultural, artistic and historic character of the area.

The US-based fast food giant had hoped to locate itself on the site of Frankie's Steakhouse and Bar at Temple Bar Square.
