The shocking absence of legal title to the access roads to Elton Court in Dublin's Sandycove came to light when Ronbow Management Company Limited, the management company that runs the estate with and for the residents, tried to block a local vegetable sales man parking his delivery van in sight of their plush properties.
Niall Beirne, counsel for Tommy Byrne who used to grow his veggies on the plots where the multi-million-euro Elton Court now stands, said the residents claimed the delivery van lowered the tone of the area.......
Mr Beirne said Sorahan's, the developers, had granted them a licenced spot to park their delivery van or car in Elton Court where the residents now leave their bins but his clients, who were elderly, had been unable to continuously walk the 185 metres to and from this parking spot.
They maintained they were entitled to park their car beside their home which was disputed by Ronbow Management Company Limited. Mrs Byrne told the court that residents had visited her home when her husband Tommy had been upstairs ill and had threatened to stay put until the vehicle was moved.
So a bunch of Nouveau Riche assholes tried to bully an elderly couple, that had resided in the area for 35 years, because their presence was visible proof of actual 'working-class' people and therefore lowered the tone of the area
oh well the best part of all this was:
Suzanne Boylan, counsel for the company and the residents, told the court the defendants were unable to consent to the Byrne's obtaining an easement to park because of the difficulty with legal title to rights of way on access roads to the estate.
She said the lack of legal title was causing the residents serious problems and they would have difficulty selling their homes without full right of way title.
LOL - pity about the fact that your houses are now going to be worth less. Serves 'em right
