Secretary of State said the fire was an act of God.  Yeah, as if he was in heaven with nothing to do but start a fire in a Belfast shop.   There is wiser eating grass. :P :P :P

It may have made economic sense to have the Christmas market in top end of Royal Avenue this year. It would have brought shoppers into that part of the city centre and there is no traffic there at present. The market looks a sight in the grounds of the City Hall.

Thats a good idea. And it would increase footfall.

Someone (many) somewhere is making money when the avenue is closed.
Sad to say....
Money is being thrown around at the minute.
Those at the coal face, having to close down. Sad.
Those in professions, drawing it out for their big expences .

Its all numbers these days. .then those making money of it, all round for a "prosecco" on a Friday afternoon to the nearest wine bar.
NUTS
We have become "over educated" and less "get on with it".
I smell a rat.

I understand that many or most members do not actually live in Northern Ireland but for those that do, what is the current situation with The Bank Buildings, is the shell of the building still there and are there any construction activities?

Yes John the shell of the building is still there. I read a few weeks ago that plans for the reconstruction and restoration will begin in January. The exterior of the building will retain its original character. :)

Thanks ldugan, it will be interesting to follow the progress as it looks to be a massive job, especially from an engineering perspective in retaining the original front during construction.
