The planning application was reported in Village, Ireland's political and cultural magazine:

15 love, the planetarium
The OPW has made a planning application to Dublin City Council for the construction of a planetarium at the rear of the former UCD block at Earlsfort Terrace. Unfortunately they also want to convert a unique former Tennis court bequeathed to the State by Rupert Guinness in 1935 to an exhibition space, removing, irreversibly, its principal features.
