Students Move Into James McSweeney House


Share this article


Residents of James McSweeney House in Dublin's North Inner City have been left 'distraught' and 'dismayed' after students were moved into their senior citizen flat complex.

The elderly residents were moved out by The Catholic Housing Aid Society, who are planning to redevelop the building.

However, while it seeks planning permission, students have been moved in and are being charged 800 euro a month in rent.

Chief Executive of Chas, Michael McGovern, told The Irish Times it would have been 'daft' to leave the apartments lying empty.

Independent City Councillor Mannix Flynn says the residents should not have been moved out so early in the process.
