Share this article


The number of fire safety notices issued in the city has more than doubled over the past twelve months.

The Irish Times reports that Dublin City Council served 33 notices last year, 11 on residential properties.

The news comes following a number of high profile fire safety incidents in recent years, most notably Priory Hall in 2011 and Longboat Quay in 2015.

Inspections on properties was also up over the year, owing to an increase in staffing numbers according to the Council.

Independent Dublin City Councillor Mannix Flynn believes the jump in inspections needs to be maintained:

"During the boom certain things were not looked at, we know this because of Priory Hall and Longboat Quay, and there are others out there simply waiting to happen.

"We need to be at this level of inspection throughout the year, 24/7 in order to stand up to our duties in relation to fire safety."
