Since then I believe that the law has changed
Unfortunately the legal issues have not yet been finalised. They are in the process of repeal, and are covered in the â€œLand and Conveyancing Law Reform Bill 2006â€ which has just completed (23/11) round one in the Seanad. See Chapter 3 Section 41 – 45. at http://www.oireachtas.ie/documents/bills28/bills/2006/3106/b31b06s.pdf
An early stage preamble states:
Party walls and boundaries
Disputes occasionally arise between neighbouring land owners in relation to party walls or other structures dividing their properties. Problems may also arise where buildings are so close to a boundary wall between the properties that the only means of access is through the neighbouring property. Part 7 of the Bill contains a set of new provisions designed to regulate the rights of the neighbouring owners. Where agreement is not possible, a building owner may seek a ‘works order’ from the District Court to authorise the carrying out of specified works.
