Clancy Quay, Islandbridge, Dublin, yesterday.

On sale for €70 million.

Property developer David Kennedy had planned 700 apartments for the site, but only 60 per cent of those were ever built (with half of those currently occupied) before he went bust owing €240 million.

The development was built on the site of Clancy Barracks, named after Peadar Clancy, killed during the War of Independence, and was associated with the Crimean War, the Boer War, the First World War, and the 1916 Rising before being sold by the state.

Makes you proud.

€70m for 420 apartments and 8.45 acres in Dublin (Irish Times)
