Tyrrelstown tenants form an action group- Cllr Paul Donnelly

category national | housing | press release author Sunday March 20, 2016 22:12author by anon Report this post to the editors

Cllr Paul Donnelly (SF) has welcomed the establishment of the Tyrrelstown Tenants Action Group after a meeting in the Tyrrelstown Educate Together School.

The action group agreed to hold a demonstration outside the Dáil next Tuesday, 22nd March. The group will meet at the Mansion House before heading to Davy Stockbrokers to hold a small demonstration and then will head to the Dáil to call for action against these vulture funds who are putting about 50,000 homes at risk".

Speaking after the meeting Cllr. Donnelly said: "The latest letter from Twinlite provides relief to some of the tenants. The decision not to sell the 50 apartments and that the rest of the homes not issued with termination letters will now not have their leases terminated for at least 18 months has been welcomed".

"However, while I welcome those assurances, it is clear the commitments are not strong enough to reassure those who have got a termination of their tenancy that they won’t end up in homeless accommodation".

"My proposal to meet with Twinlite management as soon as possible was agreed upon. The main aim of the meeting is to demand that the residents are given a written assurance that Twinlite will not act on the termination of the tenancies until all families have secured appropriate housing".

“I have spoken to several of the tenants who have not yet received any termination of leases letters to date and they are very relieved that in the short term their homes will not be sold for a minimum of 18 months; however they are still anxious that at some stage they will be sold”.

“I spoke to a number of residents also in the apartments and they will be the only people fully relieved to hear their homes will not be sold and they will be able to remain in Tyrrelstown for the foreseeable future”.

"I am calling on all citizens to please support our demonstration on Tuesday, housing is a human right and this should be acknowledged with immediate action".
