It’s understood that property company Ires Reit, Cluid, and Dun Laoghaire County Council voted in favour of the payments to be made by residents.According to one resident, around 20% of the apartments are owner-occupiers.The overall bill for repairs is more than €10 million, which residents have said previously that they’d struggle to afford.Read: Residents of Sandyford apartments asked to foot ‘potential’ €10,000 billRead: Apartment owners could face ‘up to €30 million’ bill to bring complex up to regulations Image: Google Maps Short URL 78 Comments By Gráinne Ní Aodhalast_img read more
