DUBLIN does Dubai: New shamrock-shaped island...



... to boast new skyline. There you have it, done in pure dubai fasion, a new city on a manmade island in Dublin bay that'll be connected to the main part of Dublin by one (probably very traffic congested) highway.

The website:

Unfortunately, looks like this is just a vision. I can't imagine this ever being built.
