The now-closed Natural Bakery outlet in Ranelagh; Fine Gael Minister for Housing Eoghan Murphy with volunteers in Ranelagh, Dublin 6 this morning


The latest edition of The Phoenix magazine reports that on the day the general election was announced, January 14, the Natural Bakery outlet in Ranelagh was closed.

The next day the former bakery became a campaign office for Housing Minister Eoghan Murphy.

The magazine reports:

According to Dublin City Council’s planning office, there is no record of any application for a change of use or the erection of large election signs.

Now, after various Ranelagh residents raised objections, the Planning Office’s enforcement squads are on the case.

Murphy may now have to make a belated planning application for retention of his pop-up office, although it is likely to shut its doors sometime in mid-February when the DBS ballot papers have been counted…..

    imagine volunteering .. to keep this idiot in his position. one thing to be paid to help him, but to volunteer .. and theyre young lads too. if they aren’t getting slaggings from their mates then i’ve lost hope for the youths altogether.

    Some TDs are noted for their cuckoo-like actions.
    Kehoe in Wexford too over the FF office in the town when the local FF candidate was unsuccessful in his bid to retain his seat.

        Not simply democracy, it is a four seat constituency, and you haven’t been paying attention if you think Fine Fail and Fine Gael aren’t taking the first two of those four seats.
