NO CURBS ON REGENERATION BOARDS

Attempts by some members of Limerick City Council to
place obstacles in the way of the new Regeneration Boards
must be condemned, a spokesman for Republican Sinn
Fein said today.

Joe Lynch from Ballinacurra Weston, a member of an
advisory committee working with the Regeneration Board
in the Southside of Limerick said that while some City
Councillors are complaining about a lack of information
the reality is that the City Council abandoned many
housing estates down the years.

It is now the highest form of hypocrisy for these City
Councillors to criticize the Regeneration Boards when
it is the City Council that failed the residents of the
Troubled estates, he said.

For fifty years the City Council turned its back on the
problems of the estates and allowed anti-social and
criminal behaviour to drive decent people out of
their homes.

The fact that the City Council does not control the
Regeneration Boards seems to be a complaint but
the Boards are dealing directly with the affected
residents and this is a new departure in Limerick
and it must be welcomed.

These City Councillors instead of complaining about
their roles being diminished would be better off to
consult with the people they abandoned in the housing
estates. Then they may gain some standing in the
local community.
