Could Ice Rink not go else­where?

The Argus - - NEWS -

DEAR Sir,

I don’t want to come across as a killjoy, but I see that the Dun­dalk on Ice rink has been in­serted onto our lovely Mar­ket Square again this year and will re­main there for the next two months, an eye­sore in the cen­tre of our town at the most mag­i­cal time of the year.

I know it’s a great as­set and amenity to the town at Christ­mas, but could it be placed some­where else? What about the old Dunnes Stores premises in Park Street?

There would be no un­sightly pre­fab and the front of the premises could be done up, which would also brighten up Park Street over the Christ­mas pe­riod.

The Mar­ket Square could then be used for some­thing else - maybe a Dun­dalk Christ­mas Mar­ket, al­low­ing lo­cal busi­nesses to broaden their cus­tomer base. Maybe have a big screen show­ing Christ­mas movies.

I think this could be mag­i­cal in the cen­tre of our town. The Square could then be linked through the De­mense Shop­ping Cen­tre by a Christ­mas themed walk­way over the now in­door ice rink.

Just an idea!!

Yours sin­cerely,

Briege Kelly,
