Curtain times are 8:15 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 3 p.m. Sunday. DUBLIN, Ireland <AP)The slowest walkers in Europe are in Dublin — and that’s official. So official, in fact, that a new computerized traffic signals system on the city’s main street — O'Connell Street — allows more time for pedestrians to cross at intersections than it does vehicles. Pedestrians get 99 seconds “GO” for every 66 seconds allotted motorists. Common Market countries generally reckon their pedestrians walk at up to 4 miles an hour. In Britain, traffic signals allow for a pedestrian speed of 3*£ miles an hour. The O’Con­ nell Street system is set for a pace of U£ miles an hour. A Dublin Corporation spokesman noted the pace of Irish life is “well known for its leisureliness” and said the new system has built-in safety advantages.
