High Rise refusal a victory - Sinn Fein

Sinn Fein representative in South East Inner City Daithí Doolan has welcomed the decision in Ringsend to refuse the 13 storey high Rise.

Mr.Doolan said:

``It is a victory for the local residents, and acknowledges the voice of the residents in Ringsend and Irishtown. It vindicates the residents right to live in a High Rise free environment and will hopefully set the precident for any future developments especially the proposals in George's quay.''

``The people were genuinely frightened that the high rise would overshadow the area and have an adverse effect on the entire community.This is a victory for commonsense the environment and the people of this area

``I would like to extend my congratulations to the local residents, and pledge to continue to give my active support to any other residents in their fight against this unwelcome type of development.''
