Unbelieveable! Why not buy Southfork?
"AN accommodation centre on Limerick city's suburbs for seven Traveller families remains idle eight months after it was completed at a cost of €2m.
A legal dispute is continuing between Limerick County Council and the families about the site at Kilmurry View in Castletroy.
The seven families - O'Reillys, McCarthys and Ryans - who live beside the new accommodation centre have refused to move into the new facility.
The dispute centres around the families' claims that the local authority has not provided them with anywhere to keep their horses.
Both parties involved are now receiving legal advice on how to resolve the issue.
A Limerick County Council spokesperson said they could not comment as it was "a legal issue".
Junior Health Minister Tim O'Malley said he would not listen to "any more nonsense about local authorities being obliged to provide special transient facilities for these obviously well-to-do Travellers".
He described their attitude as "grasping and inconsiderate".
I am boggled, actually I'm too tired to be boggled, I'm seething instead. All the folk that emailed the other day worried about getting onto the property ladder and worried about mortgage hikes....and this shower are turning down a 2 million Euro centre because the government didn't provide stables!
