THANKS TO NEW GOVERNMENT MINSTERS
monthly meeting with the MRA committee today, meeting with home
owners and tenants, we would like to thank the following government
ministers who acceded to our urgent request. Our request for
the demolition of derelict houses. The following are: Willie
Penrose TD Minister for housing and planning, Alan Shatter Minister
for Justice and Law Equality, Jan O Sullivan Minister for Trade
and Development. We are also in receipt of official letters
from the above involving the building of our new houses.
As the people now
can see the regeneration of Moyross and other areas is going
forward especially given the green light to commence the building
in Cliona Park. This is the first of 26 construction projects
spread over the regeneration areas costing 337 million that
hopefully will now be built over the next four and a half years.
"We would like
to quote Mr Kenny's statement 'the majority of the families
of Moyross and other regeneration areas have stayed in the city,
while a small number have moved to rural areas of Limerick and
Clare'. We find this offensive as we have a good number of tenants
and home owners who were refused to move into rural areas. These
tenants and home owners were law abiding and hard working citizens."
said MRA Vice Chairperson Tom Baker.
Tom Daly questioned Mr. Kenny in Corpus Christi Church he asked
him about the prices that he quoted onto one home owner for
his house. The price the home owner was offered was €75,000
by Mr. Paul Foley (former Northside Director of Regeneration)
but when the home owner came out of hospital 2 weeks later Mr.
Kenny offered the home owner €30,000 and said what do you
expect for your dwelling your living in a " mini Baghdad
"We find this
very insulting as at least when we are dealing with City Council
we are getting straight answers and not lies as we have found
Mr. Kenny out in many of his lies even on National radio. We
also have to question Chairperson of their so called forum Ms.
Bond as she said on National TV"she represents all the
people in Moyross which is crazy said Mr. Daly. He or
the committee of the MRA and its residents never heard of Ms.
Bond. So its about time Mr. Kenny got his act together
and start working with the people in Moyross and especially
the Moyross Residents Alliance who is working hand in hand with
Limerick City Council and Michael Kelly of Northside Regeneration
Agency in taking Regeneration process forward." said MRA
Chairperson Tommy Daly
