IT said they're selling the building. May well get turned into offices or something.

Would be a huge shame, because it's a class little courtyard.

By 2016, the committee wants 100,000 privately-operated battery electric vehicles on Irish roads. No petrol or diesel engines will be sold as new cars by 2020 – the difference between running them and running electric vehicles will be so vast there will be no demand, said the report’s author, Fine Gael TD Simon Coveney.


2019 there are 9000 electric cars on the road probally around 12,000 now Electric have not quite taken over as quickly as some predicted.

We'll be dragged into it with manufacturers favoring electric over fossil fuel.

It wasn't exactly the right time to be making the claim. I'd be interested in how many more hybrids there are and are plug in hybrids included in the electric figure? That's the gateway point. That and enough charging points, which as far as I know isn't there yet?



The figures don't include PHEVs.
Irishevowners.ie publishes the new and second hand PHEV and BEV sales every month.


Don't both of those still rely on Petrol/Diesel as well.

We need houses but there’s a lot of dodgy deals to construct the wrong sort of buildings in the wrong locations with developers wanting to coin it, taking advantage of the urgent need to build homes.
I don’t think Spencer Dock is particularly contentious though as it’s very urban and building high there is nowhere near nice Georgian locations and won’t trouble the public transport as many people work nearby.

Planning is a joke. There’s zero consistency or accountability.
They’d deny you a garage conversion but put high rise apartments next door.

Dublin City council spending a fortune to block the construction of more housing

This is Dublin city council protecting their Nimbyesge SDZs restricting building heights in the docklands.

Fortunately, or unfortunately for Ronan, they are due to be revised in the next 12 months, and in reviewing them, DCC will have to take Murphys new height rules into consideration.

It's simply DCC protecting its manor. It hated the old Docklands develpment authority which basically usurped its powers in docklands. And saw the ABP as trying to do the same.

Yes they still rely on petrol/diesel but they're good "transition" vehicles

https://www.rte.ie/news/dublin/2020/022 ... ulky-race/

Was listening to newstalk this morning when this came up. Had a guy representing travellers from tallaght on, looking for comments...

"wait what, what are ye calling me for, are ye just assuming this was travellers - racist" etc (I'm paraphrasing).

Had the presenters backtracking immediately saying no no no, lots of people illegally race sulkys down the motorway, not implying anything, we should fund sulky racing tracks in the midlands etc.

Quote:
An investigation is under way after a sulky race took up four lanes of a motorway in Co Dublin at the weekend.

Video footage on social media shows two horses and carts travelling at speed down the inbound lane of the N7 motorway in Citywest.

Gardaí say they are aware of the video and have asked anyone with information to contact them.

The Dublin Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals has said it is appalled by the footage of two horses in a sulky race on the N7.

Video of the events, purportedly to have at the weekend, has been shared on social media.

It shows two sulkies racing on the motorway surrounded by cars and vans.

Today, Brian Gillen from the DSPCA said the situation was very serious from an animal welfare point of view.

He said horses running on such hard surfaces at speed could easily result in a slip, which ultimately could mean they would have to be put down.

He also said it was a societal problem and said more facilities and training needed to be provided for those who want to race.

RTÉ News spoke to a 28-year-old man, who did not want to be identified, who said he was one of those who took part.

He said the race lasted around four minutes and took place at around 7.40am on Sunday. He also said that particular stretch was a popular spot for sulky racing.

The man said his horse was being well looked after and was minded and was in perfect health afterwards.

Asked about the potential harm that could have been caused, he said maybe it was dangerous but that was the sport.

He said he grew up in the sport and did not race in tracks because he did not have a licence.

The Road Safety Authority has said the the behaviour was irresponsible and said it put people's lives at risk. Gardaí said they were investigating the incident.

That funding sulky races is a John Connors job as well with nonsense statistics attached. 'Actually sulky racing is the 4th most popular horse based activity in Longford and on roads into and out of Tallaght and Clondalkin. When the NRA is building motorways they could do a 5km stretch of 4 lane for use as a track running parallel to all major roads. The major roads would then only be used on special occasions, and when we have set the track road on fire at times of a feud'

It was absolutely hilarious. She was terrified of being labelled racist. Apparently it’s the governments fault that these guys are racing horses down main motorways, the government hasn’t invested enough in them :lol:

I see one lad with a sulky in Longford and he's not a knacker. They are out of control. I was listening to the Chief of Police from NY on Ryan Tubridy yesterday. He said that the zero tolerance attitude taken in the 80's and 90's is what has made the city safe again.

I'd vote for a government that would put law and order very high on the list of priorities. It definitely impacts on more people than the "homeless".

From the reporting it sounds like he did cooperate.

I suspect there's a chance he's telling the truth.

Knowing CAB, they'll keep a very close eye on him. If he's stupid enough to have lied they'll get him.

There's nothing contentious going on at Georgian locations, except maybe the pastiche ESB building (which I saw some of the brick work for a few days ago that worries me).

If anything we need more contentious works. A good portion of the north inner city is a derelict hellhole and littered with Georgian buildings in shabby order.

The government should be able to build loads of houses at cost with all the expertise they have as a developer. And if they have to enlist a private contractor that contractor should do the job for a loss as penance for their sins.

CAB are generally quite smart.

The issue here is that nobody can access this stuff without the passwords. If he's lost the passwords, he loses the asset. If he really hasn't, then he's been forced to lie, giving an extra angle to leverage him down the line.

Maybe in the traditional ' tell me knack, where did you get the 20K Rolex ?' they are but things have moved on a bit.
Crypto is like mercury if you want it to be like that. That is the reason it is now the crims currency of choice. It's designed to be untraceable and impossible to get at unless you have skills that somewhere like CAB could certainly not afford.

What do you do with those buildings though? You have to knock them to make it affordable. Is that something we want to do?

They know that too.

The whole point of crypto-currency is that the weak link is always the human.

I would not have monetized the bitcoin seizure,to the press, until it was liquidated and lodged into CAB's account in Euro's.
If I am the criminal involved, that's never going to happen.

If CAB are trying to claim they've seized that money then they're chancing their arm but other than that, I'm not sure how they're being incompetent.

That's the whole point Stats. You cannot seize a group of blockchain codes that nobody knows the ownership of without the codes to unlock them. Who and where are you seizing them from ? .
If I was smart enough to make 50 bar in crypto, I think I would have the wherewithal to hide those codes in an encrypted file, certainly not on a hard copy in my fishing rod case.

IMO their incompetence comes from them calling this a win and putting it in their annual figures.

Up to 15 tenants renting a Dublin house at the centre of a dispute between a vulture fund and the owners have been given a month to move out.
The property is in an affluent part of south Dublin where family homes regularly sell for more than €1m.

The tenants, from Brazil, have been renting the four- bedroom house in Avoca Park, Blackrock, for €350 a month plus bills.

Tenants had been paying rent to a mystery middleman who texted them this week to say they had to move out by March 15.

One renter, Diego, had only been living there for a week when he was told he would have to vacate.

"I am moving out next week as I have found somewhere else to stay," he said. "We were told we have to get out."

With each tenant paying €350, the house would have been generating more than €5,000 each month in rent.

The property is currently the subject of a dispute between a financial fund and the owners, Paul White and Jane Gleeson of Roney Beach, Gorey, Co Wexford.

On Thursday the High Court granted an injunction to Everyday Finance DAC for possession of the property pending the full hearing of the action.

Everyday Finance claims the property is the subject of a mortgage executed in consideration of loans advanced by AIB. It is claimed €3m is due and owing under those loans.

The plaintiffs claimed approximately 15 people are living there and the owners had not co-operated with the receivers.

In reply, Mr White told the court the premises had been let since 2002, with the knowledge of AIB, to a single tenant.

Mr White said he was unaware there were 15 people living there and said he did not know how the property came to be occupied by anyone else.

Independent.ie spoke to tenants in the house, who are now stressing about having to find somewhere else to live in the middle of a housing crisis.

They said three communal rooms in the house were converted into bedrooms and they came across an advert for the property on Facebook.

Tenants Renato and Nathan, who are originally from Brazil, said they had been paying rent to a middleman, who appears to be subletting a number of other properties in the capital.

In a text to tenants, the mystery man wrote: "We have decided that it is best not to renew the contract with the owners. So we will be refunding everyone's deposit on the 15th of March.

"We don't want to be involved with the conflict between the owners and the banks and we don't want our tenants to have to deal with that.

"For these reasons we need to give everyone 28 days to find other accommodation. All our other properties have no issues with the banks. So we can show you other properties we have if you would like to stay with us or if you want to find other accommodation that is no problem.

"We can provide you with very good landlord reference letters as well for anyone who wants to find their own accommodation."

The house was advertised for rent in 2016 for €3,900 a month and described as a "lovely double-fronted modern detached home tucked away in a quiet cul-de-sac."

It is understood the couple had been living in the house for a number of years before letting it out in 2002.

One of the female tenants in the house said she came across an advert for it in a Facebook group used to find accommodation in Ireland.

"We were told we will get our deposits back," she said.

Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council and the HSE had inspected the property but were not taking any enforcement action, it was noted in court on Thursday.

Mr Justice Mark Sanfey said none of the parties seems to be aware of the situation regarding rent, although it had been claimed the defendants "continue to derive a substantial income" from the premises. The defending couple are arguing that the receivers were not validly appointed in 2017.

It was also claimed there was no debt due and owing by Ms Gleeson and she was entitled to the benefit of rent or any other form of payment in respect of her interest in the property.

In his judgment, the judge said he was satisfied the plaintiffs had shown a strong case likely to succeed at the full trial of the action.

Taking all the circumstances into account, he said it was appropriate to make orders enabling the fund and receivers to take possession of the property.

The judge noted the couple do not reside at the property and it was not disputed that Mr White is in substantial arrears.

The current situation, with an estimated 15 people living at the property, was "completely unsatisfactory", he said.

Paul White was contacted for comment.

According to the ST, Mastercard will be announcing 1,200 additional jobs and the creation of a campus in South County Business Park tomorrow. They already employ about 500 people here. They will be taking over the recently completed "One South County " building and signing leases on Two and three South county which are yet to built. They will ultimately have enough space to house more than 2,500 people.

According to the ST, Dublin is the core technology centre for Mastercard and houses Mastercard Labs the company's global research and development arm. And it is this that is expanding. It grew out of an Irish company "Orbiscom", that Mastercard took over.
