Seeing as I can't make the protest in Dublin. I've been thinking about how I could make a contribution for irishhometruths.com if BB would choose to use it.

So I took advantage of the good weather and started to take some video of the ghost estates around me.

It's just simple "drive by" video of rows of houses, about 2 minutes unedited so far.

If anybody could contribute more it would be great. Depending on access either "drive by" or panning along. The idea is to show house, after house, after house, empty.

It doesn't need to be high quality as it will go up on youtube, I just used the video function on my digital camera.

Once the footage is edited together the idea is to add audio of Country Tom telling us how we need to be building more houses etc. :roll:

That's were I could do with some help, you would think it was easy to find Tom telling us we need 50,000 houses a year etc. but I've spent the afternoon trawling through the bubble radio thread trying to find the appropriate bits, so far without success. The problem is that I can't find the relevant bits archived. If anybody has links it would be great if they could PM me with them.

I must take a few videos or photos round here - there are many empty or quiet building sites and estates and strangely enough even single houses that seem to have stopped, if not quite abandoned yet.

Anywhere and everywhere it seems :( . Whatever about the financial costs I worry about the long term social costs of all these unfinished estates.

It is very spooky wandering around them. I wouldn't fancy being a child going on a trick-or-treat expedition around these places tonight.

Thanks for that. Fixed now, I'd made some changes to the Apache config the other day and left out the redirect from http://www.ghostestates.com to http://ghostestates.com which is the registered domain for the API key!

Remember the movie "Suburbia" about a gang of punks living on a ghost estate?

Some new Sli Corglass snaps today (interior and exterior) - a good example of a Section 23 estate that is already succumbing to vandalism - despite being very isolated.
This is probably the second scariest ghost estate I've seen, after Carrigglas.


The showhouse at Sli Corglass appears to have been burgled - everything cleared out. Also the ceilings are cracking due to some sort of leak.
How long till these places start falling in.
