George's Quay is a street and quay in Dublin on the southern bank of the River Liffey. It is located between Burgh Quay and Hawkins Street to the west, and City Quay and Talbot Memorial Bridge to the east.
The quay is fronted primarily by George's Quay Plaza - a complex of buildings located between Hawkins street and Lombard Street. Along with the wider IFSC area, It is sometimes jokingly referred to as "Canary Dwarf" in reference to Canary Wharf in London. The 13 story complex faces the Custom House and, at 58.8 metres (193 ft) high, is one of the tallest in the capital after Liberty Hall. Completed in 2002, it was designed by KMD Architecture, and houses the headquarters of Ulster Bank. Initial plans for the development by Irish Life dated from the 1980s.
Artists Wanted for Dún Laoghaire Street Art Project General News Wednesday, January 6, 2021 DLR COUNTY We’re looking for artists to get involved in the Dún Laoghaire Street Art Project. The first project of its kind in Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown, it aims to create an open-air art gallery in Dún Laoghaire town, using its walls and doorways as a canvas to showcase the best of urban street art. Initially conceived of as a way to brighten up urban areas and encourage footfall, the Project can perhaps take on a new life in the context of COVID-19. When it comes to fruition in summer 2021, we hope that it might reflect a move towards brighter days, and with it bring an optimism that has been difficult for many to maintain over the last year. We are now inviting interested artists to submit their proposals for consideration. All the details are here – please note that the closing date for receipt of proposals is 5pm on Wednesday, February 24th, 2021. Expressions of interest are also sought from parties interested in managing the Dún Laoghaire Street Art Project. Further information is available from the Economic Development Unit at [email protected].
