“Two upset brickies are continuing to stage a 200 foot high sit in protest on a crane claiming they have enough food for eight days. Protesters Gary Gleeson (top left)  and Luke Fitzpatrick (right) who are members of Unite trade union are claming they earn just €4.90 euros a hour while working on the site of Kishoge Community College site in Lucan. The developers JJ Rhatigan clam the workers allegations are untrue and the pair are being paid by  a sub contractor”
