Roche to examine Limerick parkland purchase
03 February 2006 16:27
Minister for the Environment Dick Roche has given a commitment that his department will examine the origins of a deal in which public parkland in Limerick ended up being sold to a private developer.
A block of 59 luxury apartments now stands on a section of the People’s Park in the city. The parkland was given as a gift to the people of the city in 1877 by the Pery family and the Earls of Limerick.
However, Minister for State at the Department of the Environment Tim O’Malley has raised the matter with Minister Roche.
Minister O’Malley believes due process was not followed in the purchase of the title and subsequent sale of the plot of land by Limerick City Council.
