Note: This matter was finally resolved by the government in December 2014.  It is a remarkable story. A builder who has no sense of responsibility for it; a government that left the building industry to ‘self-regulation’ that led to it (and many another like it throughout the country) was like leaving the Fox in charge of the hen house; and the desperate unbelievable penniless plight of the people who have been through hell. And the main men riding the roost? The bankers of course – they lent the money against a worthless asset with full knowledge as they always employ a valuer (they say!).

But the best part of it all was the comment by the builder which I think was the comment of the century – sheer beaut!He was also asked why he applied for bankruptcy in Britain rather than Ireland, and whether such a move was at odds with his republican militant past:“Tell me something, if you were hungry tomorrow, which of the two passports would you eat to put the hunger off you?”And this from an IRA gunman and paramilitary hunger striker! But how absolutely right he is. Ireland – rejoin the UK as soon as and stop the expolitative tragedy of ‘independence’. See the journal article link here.

One year ago 256 residents of Priory Hall were evacuated from their homes with only a weekends notice & with no idea of where to go. Families & young children were told to pack their backs and get out. They were told their homes were so dangerous a fire could engulf the entire apartment complex in minutes. For the last year they have been forced to fight the builder, the government & the banks in their struggle for a safe home. Here is their year in pictures (to the tune of Johnny Logan’s What’s another year)
