Thank you Fianna Fáil and Brian. Now all income receipts go to pay interest on the National Debt.

End of a political era at Lenihan family home
Home of late Brian Lenihan snr now on market for €1.3m following death of widow Ann


Parkview at the Castleknock gate to the Phoenix Park is a small scheme of standard detached homes built in the early 1970s. What sets number 24 apart is that for the past 45 years it has been home to one of the State’s most prominent political families. The home of the late Brian Lenihan snr, former tánaiste and minister for foreign affairs, it is now on the market for €1.295 million following the death last year of his widow Ann Lenihan.

The Lenihan family moved here from Athlone in the 1970s following Brian Lenihan’s decision to switch his political base to the then burgeoning Dublin West region incorporating Castleknock. The move was copperfastened after Lenihan lost his seat in the Roscommon-Leitrim constituency.

With direct views of the Phoenix Park, the 228sq m (2,457sq ft) five-bed was built by Brennan & McGowan builders as an extension of the Deerpark housing development and named Parkview. Built as luxury houses, they became known locally as “millionaires’ row”.

Upmarket scheme

It was an ambitious upmarket scheme that was only half complete when the Lenihans arrived, and in the doldrums of the 1970s and early 1980s it took far longer to complete than was originally envisioned.



so Lenihan just lost his seat and was able to buy a luxury house ?

I should come as no shock to you slasher that Brennan & McGowan featured rather extensively in Flood Tribunal....
