THE viewers horrified by findings of OPW investigation on Prime Time

The broadcaster aired a special RTE Investigates episode of the hit show yesterday evening 

The Office of Public Works
 

RTE viewers were left horrified by what they saw after a special edition of Prime Time featured an RTE Investigates report into the Office of Public Works (OPW) last night.

The OPW is responsible for maintaining. conserving and running some of our best loved parks, monuments and cultural institutions.

They also look after a large number of properties ranging from office accommodation and garda stations to laboratories and warehouses.

The property arm of the OPW spent over €450m in 2019 – but two years before that, two men, Allan Morgan and John Dowds, authored a report on a number of transactions.

Having got the information, RTÉ investigated and aired the results last night.

And those watching were sickened by some of the things they saw.

In November, the OPW had 45 vacant garda stations for which it says it is exploring alternative state use – all, except one, have been vacant for at least seven years.

In a row of terraced houses in Crosshaven, seven of 12 had been vacant for years with four empty since 1983.

The Miesian Plaza in Dublin’s Baggot St is in the news every day as it is where the Covid-19 public briefings are held – but the State will be paying €300m in rent and refurbishment over the next 25 years for it.

There are multiple issues in the building, according to the report from RTE.

These included: access problems for people with disabilities, to repeated smells and incidents of water turning off, as well as ceiling leaks.

In early 2020, the canteen operator terminated its contract after “numerous problems with the kitchen equipment tripping the fuses”, which “caused plugs to melt on the induction hobs”.

The OPW told RTÉ Investigates that it is engaging with the landlord, Parma, which is controlled by beef processor Larry Goodman and his son Larry Jr.

“If your blood pressure can handle it , it worth watching #RTEInvestigates #rtept to understand how dysfunctional our public bodies are. This excellent show tonight on #OPW sums up exactly #HowIrelandWorks . We can do so much better.” said one viewer.

“OPW paying a Larry Goodman property company for €300million over 25 years for rent of Dept of Health office space! Did I hear that right???” asked a second.

“Private sector runs rings around the public sector. Waste, waste and more waste. The Dept Health offices isn’t the only thing where the OPW has wasted money – our money – and lots of it” fumed another.
