CARMAN'S HALL OFF FRANCIS STREET

INFOMATIQUE HAS BEEN OPERATIONAL FOR MORE THAN TWENTY YEARS

CARMAN'S HALL OFF FRANCIS STREET

IT IS ST. NICHOLAS OF MYRA NOT ST. PATRICK [CARMAN'S HALL OFF FRANCIS STREET]

When I photographed this building back in 2012 I thought that the statue on the wall was St. Patrick.

There is both a building and a street named Carman's Hall.

The National Inventory Of Architectural Heritage describes the building as follows: "Freestanding corner-sited nine-bay two-storey former national school, built 1936-39, having curved two-bay three-storey stair hall to south-west corner, playground and shelter to roof, and two-bay two-storey return to rear (north) elevation. Now in use as parish hall and heritage centre. Flat roof hidden behind parapet with concrete coping, having rendered chimneystack and cast-iron rainwater goods to north elevation, and flat-roofed concrete shelter with circular-profile piers adjacent to stair hall to west end. Rendered cross to parapet to front. Rendered walls with roughcast render below continuous sill course to ground floor windows. Statue of the Virgin Mary and raised metal lettering to front elevation. Statue of St. Nicholas of Myra to curved south-west corner."

Below is information provided be Dublin city Council:

Carman's Hall is a two storey building located along Carman's Hall in Dublin 8. The site is bounded by Garden Lane to the west, the rear of Mews Garden Court development to the north and a vacant site to the east which is located at the junction of Francis Street and Carman's Hall. The premises were formerly used as a Parish Centre and known as St. Nicholas of Myra, it is in the ownership of the Dublin Archdiocese. The permitted use under the lease is as a temporary accommodation facility to cater for the needs of homeless persons and the term of the lease will cease on the 1st of September, 2021.

As restrictions are easing during the current Covid-19 Pandemic, the Dublin Region Homeless Executive (DRHE) & Dublin City Council’s Housing and Community Services give notice that planning permission is sought for the retention of the existing use for a further period of 12 months, until cessation of the lease, of the former Parish centre at 12-14 Carman’s Hall. This is to ensure the continued emergency accommodation of homeless persons during these unprecedented times. This service is funded by the DRHE under Section 10 funding from the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage. The service will continue to be operated by the Dublin Simon Community.

I USE THIS AND IT IS ALREADY FULL

One of the biggest ongoing problems that I have is storage and the problems gets worse by the year. 4 Years ago I purchased two LaCie 8TB thunder bolt drives and eighteen months later I purchased a 12TB drive and then in August of 2019 I needed a 20TB unit and it is already full. I do have an aggressive backup policy which does require a lot of storage so i suppose that I should not be surprised. I should mention that I use Amazon Photos and currently am using 12TB of online storage.


I REALLY DO NEED A SOLUTION
