Defects. Living With The Legacy Of The Celtic Tiger

$20.00

Across Ireland, thousands of people are living in homes with serious fire-safety and structural defects. Some have made the news, many have not. Defects: Living with the Legacy of the Celtic Tiger tells us the horrifying story of how these people came to be trapped in dangerous homes.

In this follow-up to his hugely popular Home, Eoin Ó Broin reveals how decisions made by the goverments from 1960s to the 1990s led to an alarmingly light-touch building control regime. When combined with the Celtic Tiger-era property development, this allowed defective properties to be built and sold in huge numbers to unsuspecting victims. The results are clear. Families are living in fire-defective and structurally unsound apartments and houses across the state, and homes I'm Donegal, Mayo and elsewhere are literally crumbling apart as a result of mica and pyrite in defective building blocks.

Who was responsible? Why did they get away with it? And who will foot the bill to fix these potentially fatal defects? These questions and more are answered in this hard-fitting and shocking investigative work.
