meltwaterfalls:
It certainly is confusing, as you say Dún Aonghasa and Clonmacnoise are the stand out sites on the current list but they haven't pursued them.

These are such great sites. Maybe turn it into Aran Islands Mixed heritage, but in any case: Wow. 4* + for both... Why bother writing a new list if you never bothered of inscribing this.

meltwaterfalls:
not 100% convinced on the Dublin

Maybe colonial heritage. Liked the town, but hard pressed to differentiate it from other UK towns (and Ireland decideldy not UK, so can see some cultural hesitations).

meltwaterfalls:
The Burren has just been sat on a tenattive list since 1992, it seems it can celebrate its 30th anniversay by being put back on the tentative list for another decade.

To Burren I have been to... But it's not really a great site and have hard time.

Similarly, Céide Fields didn't make it to the new list despite being "... the oldest known field systems in the world." (Wiki).

One of the most spectacular touristic sites in Moldova - Cricova underground city - maybe a wishful thinking and a part of marketing promotion but who knows ? https://winetours.md/eng/blog/the-underground-city-cricova-could-become-unesco-heritage

The Voorhuit building is very impressive, a real workers palace! There is also an beautiful book about it's interesting history. Gent was the City with the first unions in Belgium and there is also a splendidly looking union building on Vrijdagsmarkt that shows great confidence I have been wondering before if Gent could not make a valid nomination on its own by this topic. I find anyway, that this beautiful city with a quite unique historic center would make an excellent WHS, but chances for that are low with the popular tedium of European cities and Gent being already doubly inscribed.

I'm not sure whether or not the US State Department officially added the Lincoln Memorial to the T-list as part of the Civil Rights sites one that the people working on it want to expand to include an entire trail. There was a mention of it last January.

People's houses / Workers' Assembly Halls (Transnational serial nomination)

Belgium

De Vooruit

De Vooruit binnenkort misschien Unesco Werelderfgoed

Denmark has launched a request to stimulate the People's Houses to join forces to go for world heritage status. The Danish initiators want to make an inventory of people's houses in order to get as many of them inscribed. The dossier will apparently be submitted in 2023.

Also, tieing in with what has appeared in the topic about Denmark, after some thoughts about it I am convinced that this seems to have a great potential. At least, I think that, after what will probably be more than 15 years of meticuolous research to locate tangible documents (the halls) that have to satisfy stringent prerequisites all over the world and that can really be said to embody something that has (had) a very clear universal value, this proposal will warrant serious consideration, and I can already envision an easy inscription should they want to proceed with it. It remains the doubt if it still remains at a too abstract level, but it looks as if it will be solidly anchored to specific sites in a meaniningful way, circumventing this problem. And, while it cannot be entirely devoid of a political facet, I see it touching more universal, let's also say "generic" values than e.g. some recent, ideologicized proposals (I am looking at you, Gdańsk shipyard...).

Anyway, polemics aside, I am now really looking forward to what wil lcome out of this wannabe tentative site.

Czechia

- Šobes Vineyard
https://brnodaily.com/2021/01/10/culture/research-supports-recognition-of-sobes-vineyard-in-znojmo-as-a-unesco-world-heritage-site/
OMG would you like another vineyard on the list??? The vineyard is a part of Podyjí National Park close to nice medieval town of Znojmo.
I have visited several times but it really would not deserve the WHS status, it is rather a marketing game of the Znovín Winery, owner of Šobes


- Salon of the Republic: Interwar architecture of Hradec Králové
http://www.hkcity.cz/hradec-kralove-do-unesco/
https://www.idnes.cz/hradec-kralove/zpravy/architektura-gocar-hradec-kralovehradecky-unesco.A180614_408609_hradec-zpravy_tuu
Hradec Králové is a nice city, and the possible nomination is about the modern urban planning in the area of former Barroque fortress around the medieval core. It consists of coherent ensamble of Art Deco, Rondocubist (Czech version of Art Deco), and functionalist architecture designed by architects Josef Gočár and Jan Kotěra (student of Otto Wagner and Jože Plečnik).
It has a potential in my opinion, we will see...


- The Franciscan Monastery of the 14 Holy Helpers in Kadaň
https://www.klaster-kadan.cz/uvodni-strana
https://celyoturismu.cz/kadan-chce-dostat-klaster-na-seznam-kandidatu-unesco/
https://ct24.ceskatelevize.cz/domaci/3329328-dvacet-let-restaurovani-kadan-chce-zapsat-frantiskansky-klaster-na-seznam-unesco
The nomination of this late Gothic/Renaissance monastery from 15-16 Century in otherwise nice medieval town of Kadaň has only very limited chances to become even TWHS in my opinion. The monastery were meticulously reconstructed very recently, but I have not been inside yet. Thus no idea what to expect and what is the OUV of the site

Czechia

- Crystal Valley
https://crystalvalley.cz/en

https://tn.nova.cz/zpravodajstvi/clanek/437128-cesti-sklari-maji-sanci-na-unesco-jsou-svetovi-i-tak-bojuji-o-preziti
small glassworks in Northern Bohemia famous for production of unique crystal glass. We will see in the near future, it should be decided in 2022... IMHO the glass production in Czechia is really unique and it deserves a global recognition. However, it is not clear to me if they focus on the intangible list with the glass pruduction or on the WHS with the glassworks

The production of glass pearls for Christmas decorations in Poniklá already on the list of intangible heritage:

I found the link

and it is clear that there is a joint activity of France, Czechia, Germany, Hungary, Finland and Spain to make the hand made glass on the list of intangible heritage.

Italy

- Assisi-Spoleto Olive Belt
http://www.fasciaolivata.it/en/
https://newsrnd.com/life/2021-09-03-assisi-spoleto-olive-belt-nominated-for-unesco-heritage.SyC_TAyfK.html

The Assisi-Spoleto olive groves have been already recognized by including to the list of GIAH (Globally Important Agricultural System) in 2018. The GIAH seems to be refreshingly non-Eurocentric.
http://www.fao.org/giahs/giahsaroundtheworld/designated-sites/europe-and-central-asia/olive-groves-of-the-slopes-between-assisi-and-spoleto/en/

I like the area very much, especially part around Trevi is really magical. The question is if it is enough. There is already similar nomination of Andalusia https://www.worldheritagesite.org/tentative/id/6169

I always think that Paris should expand its WHS to cover more areas, especially Haussmann's design, but Montmartre is also good.
