Is that noise the return of a boom?

Cranes on the skyline
Cranes on the skyline

I can feel something in the wind, things are a-changin'. As I walked to work last Monday morning the ground beneath me was shaking.

And I am not speaking metaphorically. There is more building work going on in Dublin city than I have seen in years.

More cranes, more cement mixers, more drills. Houses being renovated, apartments being built, offices refurbished.

All the activity reminds me of days of the Celtic Tiger, when Dublin's skyline was crammed with cranes.

It's as if someone clicked their fingers and said: "wakey wakey Dublin, time to get moving again". I'm tellin ya, a change is coming!
