Shane Ross: Town held hostage by bank

EVERY morning, when I walk to the local Spar in Enniskerry for my news fix, I pass a car park. Nothing remarkable about that.
Next I breeze past the adjoining historic Powerscourt Arms Hotel, a listed building with a proud history. Then I glance at the landmark Enniskerry clock tower (1843), buy the papers and return home to digest the news.
Last week, the car park was closed. It was blocked by steel barriers.
