    Lwr Mallow Street closed

    Lower Mallow street in Limerick closed off, seems Riverpoint building suffering wind damage, traffic bad on Henry street

    the crane there seems to be spinning out of control, just had a look and i wouldn't be surprised if it came down. Also, there appears to be more cladding coming off the River Point building.

              is that the hole high up facing Henry Street? That's been there since last week, but i don't think they have had a chance to repair due to consistent high winds. I guess the engineers didn't get their wind-loading calculations correct at design stage.

                            It's actually Shannon Bridge, not Condell Bridge (which does not exist) in case anyone is confused.
