Numbers 44/45 O’Connell Street, Dublin 1

This morning.

Ninety-eight properties managed by the Office of Public Works are sitting vacant around the country, reveals Ken Foxe, at Noteworthy:

These include several important historic properties – including two adjoining period houses on O’Connell Street in Dublin – that are being allowed to fall into disrepair.

Nearly two-thirds of the vacant properties are former garda stations, most of which were deemed surplus to requirements by the gardaí late last year.

A single rented property is also vacant, but the government is set to escape from its €112,500-a-year lease for that building on Dublin’s Clare Street in January 2020.

…Seven former coastguard cottages in Crosshaven are also empty and are currently “being prepared for disposal” , the Office of Public Works said.

…According to official records, four of the properties have not been used since “pre-1983″.
