"Should I look away?" Existential conundrum posed in Dundalk train station.

I travelled by train to Dundalk yesterday for a few meetings. I took the chance to snap some fotos as I walked to and from the station.
I admit to knowing almost nothing about the town, but I was pretty impressed by what I saw - though it only scores 3.2-out-of-5 on our site. The only other time I was ever there was as a teen playing at an U-17s basketball tournament (we lost).
The town appeared broadly clean & tidy with some nice civic architecture, esp. around the Court House.
Amazingly the train station was a bit of a highlight. There seems to be an art project in process, by which hard painted signs address travellers about that common existential conundrum of what to do about eye-contact on a train "Should I look away" etc. Nice idea.
Like its near neighbours - Drogheda & Newry - Dundalk often gets a bad rap. May not be worth it.
