The new construction, which is largely circulation, giving open public access to all areas, forms a loop, which begins and ends with Irelands Eye. The open ends of the tube are focused on The Mall - allowing direct access from the public space rather than the busy road - and the view to Irelands Eye, which forms a backdrop to public meetings in the large room at first floor level.
