If an area of ground has written across it "Liable to flooding" I stay away from it. Im pretty sure the County Councils have access to these maps.


It called corruption
FF and FG mainly
Lab and anyone else when they get elected
Think the only people not in favour of building on flood plains are the Former Green party

My 15 year old daughter thinks it's the end of the world as she knows it, after seeing those pics! (Life just wouldn't be worth living for her and her friends without those weekly trips to Dundrum!)

What I would like to know is was it legal for the landlord where the lady died to bar up the windows. Was there a fire escape apart from the door she couldn't open and is this an accident somewhere else in the city waiting to repeat itself.

When I heard this I thought it may be the end of the slum lords IF the "authorities" get the finger out. In my travels I've seen bedrooms with no windows :shock:

Not to make light of the tragedy but the garbage compactor in Star Wars comes to mind. Horrible stuff.
