Have you ever noticed that the plant pots on the Southside are way better than those on the Northside? 

Well, they are, according to Councillor Niall Ring. 

Ring has accused Dublin City Council of discriminating against the Northside by kitting out Henry Street with plant boxes that look like they were "thrown together by a first-year metal work student". 

"Even the olive plants inside them look like they're crying out saying 'look what we've been put into', he said. 

Meanwhile, he thinks the pots on Grafton Street give the impression they were handcrafted by "master carpenters".

"They look really nice and act as a sufficient barrier," he added.

Dublin City Council plans to replace the northside planters soon, The Indepdendent reports.
