Located in the middle of Shannon Town, the complex off Tullyglass Rd is a few minutes walk away from Sky Court Shopping Centre. In March of this year, it emerged that homeowners in the 240 apartment unit were told they would have pay €4m to remedy fire defects, twice more than originally estimated.
Originally the cost of works per unit was deemed to be from €6,000 to €12,000. Fire marshals were patrolling the development on a twenty four hour basis at a cost of €200,000 a year.
Speaking previously on the concerns, Adrian Kelly Clare’s Chief Fire Officer had agreed with the company on a programme of redress that would attempt to eliminate any fire safety concerns. “Clare County Council is satisfied that the owner management company is engaging with us to rectify the various fire safety issues uncovered and are completing the works on a priority basis. In the interim there are safeguards in place to allow occupiers to remain in their apartments while the works are progressing.”
