"t is like a scene from ’28 days later’ inside. Windows are smashed, partition walls are kicked in, the large dark empty car park has had all of its wiring and cables stripped. There are screws all over the floor from all of the doors and fittings that have been removed. Copper water tanks have been long ripped out of each apartment."

Finished in 2006, it was billed as “a property that simply has it all”, with 2 bedroom apartments starting from €320,000.

"Every inch of the Mill has been architecturally designed to maximise, light, space and style ... The Mill's brave design sets a new standard in apartment living." - from the brochure

It's not just the economy that killed this, it redefines the word FAIL, apart from the view which they could hardly ****** up from a flat sided box at no point does it reflect the brochure or price, it wouldn't have worked at any time.

Makes me wonder if this Is the quality most people got who bought off plan based on developers descriptions?

Such a shame. Had they been priced at 100K or less, they would have made decent homes.

What a waste of resources and labour.

That's what I'd expect to see in Detroit. I had hoped the Irish would be a few notches above that.

Completely mind-blowing. A superb rendition of the end result of hubris. Simply amazing. Should be shown to ALL schoolchildren the world over.

Quite correct, in the same way that Allied troops frogmarched Germans to cinemas after the war to see filmclips of the damage their glorious regime had inflicted on humanity.

Along with other Irish based Hpc'ers we are torn between "told you so" and a complete sadness that the sheeple bought into the nonsense, and the subsequent effect it will have on national sovereignity and social cohesion. Knew a guy who bought one of these 2 bed slaveboxes outside Dublin a few years ago for €320000. Now he tells me it was the worst decision of his life.......do you feel sorry for him or condemn for his stupidity..or both?

The new Irish gov have rowed back, temporarily at least, on increasing mortgage relief for those who bought during the boom while ending relief for future buyers.

Hilariously, the Irish nurses union have called for a campaign for civil disobedience regarding mortgage payments.....

Read it at http://www.irishexaminer.com/ireland/union-proposes-mortgage-strike-153709.html

A pity they weren't so concerned about the plight of their health services when they continously elected governments composed of muppets.

Sod them..............no sympathy

Reading the comments from Irish posters, apparently they wouldn't have because they are built incorrectly with subsidence.

....they were built with easy free money....I am sure there were some that made money from it....bricks are worthless, it is only the people that live there that make it worth something...... ;)

What a waste, what is the reason they never sold , was it the damp or just the price :o

Probably paid for by anyone with savings in the UK UK taxpayers because a bank like RBS will have helped fund it.

Allow me to correct your schoolboy mistake.
