Scenes from the Take Back The City rally.

The rally started with housing activists and supporters gathering at 34, Frederick Street North, Dublin 1 – from which housing activists were removed last night.

They then started making their way, stopping off at Parnell Monument, to another occupied house on Belvedere Place where activists have been ordered to leave by 6pm tomorrow.

Behold: an extremely well preserved 1985 Lancia Delta S4 Stradale Coupe – one of 46 remaining examples of a lightweight, 1.8l, all-wheel drive, turbo and supercharger-equipped chunk of auto-angularity designed solely to win the fractious Group B World Rally Championship, which it did in 1986 before being banned from competition by the FIA.


Price on request.


A 1986 Ford RS200 Evolution – one of only 24 such Quattro-killers made and an ultra-rare piece of rally car history.

Yours for between €200,000 and €270,000.

Further to the ever-rising motor insurance costs…

Ireland Underground writes:

Come [out tomorrow] and support us. We need every car, every van, every person possible to show the government and the insurance corporations that they answer to us. The power is with the people, they know this, we need to recognise this too.

…Meet us in Dublin at midday. We will drive through the city from midday and from 13.30 we will have on-stage entertainment followed by guest speakers in Merrion Square.

…Here is a brief outline of what we’d like to see happen:

  • Establish a task force (similar to the motor Insurance Advisory Board previously in place)
  • Tackle the claims culture more aggressively.
  • Reduce compensation payouts.
  • More transparent pricing structures of all insurance companies
  • More transparency on out-of-court settlements
  • Insurance purchased within any EU member state to be valid in Ireland
