Co Kildare development features amongst apartments with major fire safety concerns

The Minister for the Environment, Alan Kelly indicated there was a development in Co Kildare which also raises serious fire safety concerns, similar to those of the controversial development at Longboat Quay. The apartment block located at Dublin’s docklands was found to have major safey deficiencies and residents were stunned to learn this week that unless €4m was spent bringing fire safety standards up to the necessary requirements, they would face eviction. The Minister then added major deficiencies were identified in other similar developments, one located in Co Kildare. KildareNow has not learnt of the identity of said development but will update on receipt of further information.
