No it is not 1950’s blight on Irish landscape as people left Ireland as poor emigrants but it is now. Thank you Frank O’Connor, Jude Sherry, Anois. This is just some of the photos of the blight now in a country that has a homeless crisis with children in hostels. There are schemes like Repair and Lease to encourage landlords back into the market of rental but it apparently is insufficient. Neglect in our environment and cities only paves the way for social distress. All it takes is a photo, we are calling out “wasted homes” … we can have change surely. The UK chain John Lewis and their latest venture to build back homes into their cities, as Guinness did, in another century, just look to Dublin 8 near Christchurch, St Patrick’s Cathedral. Let’s clean up Ireland by starting with dereliction

Lovely apartments above the Dunnes Stores shop
                    on the Fair Green in Macroom - but there's nobody
                    living there.

20 apartments above Macroom Dunnes Stores remain empty – even during a housing shortage

LOCAL councillors have hit out at the refusal of Dunnes Stores to allow twenty modern apartments above its Macroom premises be let out to prospective renters in the middle of a housing crisis.

If ruin below was Raglan, Heytesbury Lane, Dublin 4, based on the whole concept of the popularity of the Mews homes in Knightsbridge and Kensington, London, we would be talking possible £1.5 to 2 million.

and it goes on and on while CityWest provides Tertrarch with millions to house Ukrainians … no problem providing for Ukrainians but there are opportunists who tap the market and prevent market forces keeping the pace of renovations going forward because they benefit from lucrative contracts from Government. We know it happens … just think Butlins Mosney re-morph and who got the profits.
