Public spaces in the capital


Sir, – I must commend Joseph Ryan’s suggestion (May 15th) to create dedicated walls throughout Dublin for public art and graffiti.

I suggest those who are sceptical of the suggestion should familiarise themselves with the Lennon Wall in Prague, which has been used as a focal point for artistic expression and political dissent for decades.

Such an avenue for public expression in Dublin would be a great addition to the city, and would redirect into aesthetic creativity those energies currently wasted in destructive vandalism. – Yours, etc,
