Was in it a few times. Magnificent building. Very sad to watch it burn. Hopefully it will be restored properly.

No loss of life but this is a tragedy for humanity. Terrible.

Hopefully those windows survived.

How is an old building burning down a tragedy for humanity?

What’s happening in Yemen is a tragedy for humanity......what’s even more tragic for humanity is people care more about a building/windows.....than human suffering.

And that cnut Gemma O'Doherty claiming it's an "attack on European civilisation " and "we" need to fight back.

It's  a pity such a fine old building is damaged but " tragedy"......
NO.

Over €300 million pledged already for restoration......incredible......tycoons trying to outdo each other.....

That’s exactly what crossed my mind when the media went into overdrive on this. The billionaire that owns Gucci is gonna pay for restoration but how much would he pledge to Syrian refugees. Bunch of jumped up attention seeking pretentious idiots the lot of them.
How many of these people have a passion for gothic architecture

I know now that the Internet's corrupted me badly when I first saw pictures of the fire and the first words that came into my head was "You let Dougal do a funeral?!"

As for the tragic/not tragic angle, it is at least a positive that no person seems to have been harmed, but such the destruction of a building that holds centuries of historical cultural heritage is if not a tragedy at least a significant loss for a civilisation. No less worse than other such places or constructions of long standing cultural artefacts that are destroyed either accidentally or deliberately. The fact that a great deal of suffering is occurring to a large group of people by other people, particularly when this suffering is happening in isolation from such an incident of cultural destruction, doesn't change that. Neither do you have to choose one over the other.
Putting internet gobsh*tes in their place since 1999.

Most of the historic buildings in Ireland were trashed by the English over time.
Visiting countries that weren't occupied by England for centuries you notice what a lovely heritage they still have.

I know....we were watching the coverage last night.. she turns to me and says 'Paris mourns the burning of the Notre Dam, Belfast mourns the burning of Primark!'....thought it was quite funny myself....

In fairness, some of them were thrashed by the Germans.

They were but let's just say that Bord Failte has an Ancient East marketing campaign because there isn't much left of the
Medieval stuff that is presentable.
And the Germans only operated over a few years rather than centuries

Last real tragedy in Paris was the Duke of Edinburgh tampering with yer woman's brake pipes & forcing us to listen to over 20 years' worth of "England's Rose" type nonsense.
