Poolbeg chimneys

 

Sir, – Harry Crosbie (March 22nd) reckons the capital’s iconic Poolbeg chimneys could do with a lick of paint. You’d want some paint roller to reach the top of those stacks! – Yours, etc,

PAUL DELANEY,

Co Dublin.

Sir, – In response to the entrepreneurial suggestion by Harry Crosbie, can I suggest some enterprising engineer simply stretch a large net between the two chimneys to safely catch the Brexit-escaping masses being catapulted off the coast of our nearest neighbour? – Yours, etc,

ULTAN Ó BROIN,

Sir, – I write in support of Harry Crosbie, who suggests refreshing the red and white paint on the Poolbeg chimneys. How about adding a touch of blue? – Yours, etc,
