Party property… January 20, 2017Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.
Was slightly amused by the report in the SBP at the weekend that FF has ‘cut debts’ after selling St Luke’s, the property described by the paper as ‘Bertie Ahern’s base’. It made all of €750,000 when sold (the original valuation was €550,000). Interestingly, to me at least, the property was originally purchased as a trust by friends of Ahern but when he ‘resigned from the party in 2012’ it was gifted to Fianna Fáil. A couple of other insights into party property – Fine Gael’s HQ, a Georgian building on Upper Mount Street, is valued at €2.1m. SF has three properties worth in total €1.5m but these include its Belfast HQ.
This has been mentioned (I think by dublinstreams) and it bears re-reading, the SIPO report on the 2016 GE.
