Residents in Cork face mass eviction from homes
This comes in a week in which there has been outcry over the treatment of tenants in Tyrrelstown.

RESIDENTS IN CORK are facing a mass eviction after being given notice to leave their rental properties.

These are people living in the Eden complex in Blackrock that have had their rental agreements terminated.

This arose after receiver Grant Thornton gave notice to residents at the end of January, citing its intention to sell off the property.

The notice given to the tenants of 35 apartments in the complex are due to have their notice periods expire on Friday.

In a statement this afternoon AAA TD Mick Barry has said that around 20 of the 35 residents have already left their homes.

Barry said that there are 127 apartments in the Eden development and the rest of these are set to be sold off throughout the rest of the year.

He also said that it is plan to bring the matter up in the Dáil next Tuesday and call on the caretaker government to introduce legislation to prevent this type of action being taken.

He went on to encourage tenants to remain in their homes, saying:

Any tenants who resist evictions of this kind will have the support of the vast majority of ordinary people.

This has comes during a week in which there has been a public outcry over the eviction of residents from the Cruise Park in Tyrrelstown, north Dublin.

In response, Grant Thornton has said that it has facilitated extensions for tenants who have required assistance and have facilitated tenants who have vacated early. 

It also said that Cork-based Lisney Estate Agents has been appointed as the sales agent and any tenants interested in purchasing their properties have been pointed in their direction.
