But if you fancy just sitting and dreaming or resting your legs while shopping, you'd better head for the boardwalk. Or at least be near a public park. Otherwise, there's not a seat in sight between Parnell Square and St Stephen's Green. It is hardly a pedestrian-friendly gesture, but the city council says there is a perception that benches attract people who don't move on, so they're not suitable street furniture.

          A Centennial’s View

          The term ‘Centennial’ describes a member of today’s youth cohort, an individual aged 19 or under. I, along with 2.68 billion others, fall into that category and feel that I am well positioned to give my views as to what is important to us as a demographic.

                Bloom 2017 Large Garden - FBD Insurance’s “Transition”

                This garden (name TBC) is a water landscape with a dramatic tidal effect. This unique idea is aimed at capturing the essence of the wild Irish tidal landscape. The garden will be dramatically transformed in front of the spectators’ eyes by lowering the water level. Landmasses and islands will appear and form a new landscape and then they disappear again.

                      Pesticide residues in food: risk to consumers remains low | European Food Safety Authority

                      Food consumed in the European Union continues to be largely free of pesticide residues or to contain residues that fall within legal limits, new figures show. The latest monitoring report published by EFSA reveals that more than 97% of food samples collected across the EU in 2015 were within legal limits, with just over 53% free of quantifiable residues. The figures are in line with those recorded in 2014.
