Public inconvenience


Sir, – Peter Cluskey, reporting on a court case in Amsterdam that sparked a national row about urinating in public, notes claims made in court that the city had fewer public toilets for women than any other European capital (“To pee or not to pee? Amsterdam court case sparks national row”, September 20th). This made me scratch my head. I wondered had they ever visited Dublin, a European capital city where there are no public toilets for women or men? You wouldn’t want to get “taken short” here. – Yours, etc,

Sir, – We are all used to the sight of us women having to queue to use the ladies due to the fact that there are not enough facilities. That needs to change. – Yours, etc,
