Reply To: Senator McSharry – defender of democratic purity
Sorry Lads , you may be right about the Senator and I don’t know at all anything about his or Irish Politics but you are also wrong. The scheme that was knocked back by An Bord Pleanala on the recommendation of An Taisce was an adjoining scheme to ours and as a consequence the whole city centre site has been fucked.
Again two years of work down the drain. I’m damned if I know how anything gets built in Ireland, the developer of the adjoining site that was refused was in consultation with An Taisce for two years. I did not like his proposal myself and would agree with many of the points An Bord Pleanala raised when they refused to up hold consent but planning consent was given and on that basis we committed to making an application ouselves which we have now had to withdraw. Our client has lost thousands of pounds. The whole system is weird
