Alan...... any bets on which way this will go... i really should explain what brown envelopes in irish politics are for...
this would be a shame, as the design that I have seen would be an excellent addition to Sligo
Council vote will decide 19th-century building's fate
A vote by Sligo Borough Council next Monday will determine whether an early 19th-century building next door to the town's imposing courthouse can be demolished to make way for an ultra-modern development.
Though the council decided three weeks ago, by six votes to five, not to include the threatened Teeling House in its list of protected structures, some members who favour retaining it will attempt to reverse this decision.
The Sligo county manager, Mr Hubert Kearns, recommended that the building should be listed because it was a high priority to retain historic buildings in the conservation area surrounding the recently renovated courthouse.
