Such a shame to see this in such a state now, I first saw it with all the families stuff still inside - it looked like they had just up and left and to see it as it is now with unfulfilled promises of renovation. It could be amazing but I reckon the council have enough on their plate atm.

Some great little finds with the photos you've posted on the forum, but I especially like this one. I suspect the need for hotels for people travelling to and from Ireland has all but disappeared now, but I reckon this one would have been quite popular in it's heyday. Still, it would be a tragedy to see such a great building go to waste.
