Is this it in the top corner of tomorrow's edition of the paper that pretends to be a national paper but is in fact a Cork paper?

Always wondered what the sales of the Examiner are like outside of Cork.

That's the kind of post you'd expect to see on boards.ie or the comments section of the Journal!

Files are up. It is quite nice, but no way will it not be reduced in height. I also don't think that is a bad thing, it looks fine at five (maybe six) storeys and fits in very well to MacCurtain Street, but unlike the Metropole, eight storeys just looks way too tall in most of the renders. It sticks out like a sore thumb. It is being described as a 'city sleeper' hotel, with no parking due to its proximity to the train station, bus station, airport and St Patrick's Quay.

I love tall buildings but they have to fit in. I thought eight might look fine since nine looks great for the Metropole, but for this.. it just looks so tall compared to everything else, especially with how narrow the site is, and the design of the upper floors isn't the best..
