Carraig Eden men: we'll fight to stay

Mary Fogarty

Carraig Eden residents say they may fight their eviction in the courts. More than 2,200 people have signed a petition pleading with the building's owners to sell it to the council.

Residents, who are former clients of Tiglin rehab centre, have been given until July 31 to leave the Greystones property, as it is being sold.

Some residents are currently doing anti-eviction workshops with the Irish Housing Network, a grassroots activism body that was previously instrumental in occupying Dublin's Apollo House.

The residents have gone to the county council to register for social housing and have attended meetings with the Dublin Tenants Association to learn about their rights in regards to renting.

'Anti-eviction action could be taken by bringing the matter to civil court,' said David Norton from the Irish Housing Network.
