I totally disagree with the changing of street names.
The name of a street is part of the history and heritage of the city. Changing the name is akin to erasing a period of life from the city forever.
The changing of street names after the formation of the state is a piece of history in itself - eliminating reference to the former rulers and honouring those involved in securing the Republic. I can comprehend and understand the reasoning.
Changing the name to what may be perceived to be a more marketable address to facilitate a speculative development is just wrong.
It is good that a sign was erected to give some information as to Faulkner. It would have been infinitely better if the sign was erected and the name retained.
