Revised Plan for College Green

A new application for Dublin city’s flagship traffic-free civic plaza at College Green, Dublin, will be submitted early this year, Dublin City Council chief executive Owen Keegan has collegegreenconfirmed to the 'Irish Times'.
 In November 2018 An Bord Pleanála rejected the council’s plans for pedestrian and cycle plaza scheme due to concerns about the “significantly negative impacts” it would have on bus transport and traffic in the city.
 Mr Keegan said he was confident the new application would be approved by the board, even though it would still require buses to be banned from crossing College Green to access Dame Street.
 The council has been preparing plans for the plaza since 2015 and has said the creation of the traffic-free space was essential to the smooth running of the Luas Green line that began operations through the city centre two years ago.

'King of Beaujolais' passes away

Georges Duboeuf, who has died aged 86, was  known as "le roi du Beaujolais" and was credited with turning Beaujolais Nouveau, a drink once handed out for nothing on village georgesstreets, into a major product.
 In the 1970s, Duboeuf, who had set up his own production company, Les Vins Georges Duboeuf, in 1964, was looking for a new idea to steal a march on his rivals. He noticed how villages in Beaujolais had taken to celebrating each new harvest by sploshing raw wine into the goblets of vineyard workers and passers-by.
 The  merriment of the occasion made up for the new wine's  shortcomings, and the practice spread to the streets of Lyon and even to Paris, where from the 1950s there was an annual race among restaurateurs to get their hands on the first bottles.
