More than 100 tenants given eviction notice in Dublin 8

Words: Eva O’Beirne

A 35-apartment building has been put up for sale, leaving tenants scrambling for accommodation.

Earlier this week, residents living in Tathony House, a three-storey apartment complex in Kilmainham were served eviction notices to leave the property by the start of next June.

The owner of the 35-apartment complex has claimed he is not subject to the Tyrrelstown Amendment – where a landlord cannot terminate 10 tenancies in a property simultaneously to sell, without the tenants staying in place.

The landlord told tenants the evictions were not subject to this law, due to an exemption that the price would be 20 per cent below market value selling with the tenants in situ.

The building, owned by Tathony Holdings, was a former hostel for asylum seekers before it was converted into flats for private residents around 2001.

Tenants have already claimed that they cannot find alternative accommodation in Dublin and are considering moving out of Dublin.

Meanwhile, People Before Profit TD Richard Boyd Barrett has called on Dublin City Council to buy Tathony House as there are concerns the tenants will end up homeless.

“There’s a lot of talk about landlords exiting markets and selling up,” Barrett said.

“The way to deal with that is for the council to step in and buy this property and ensure that tenants don’t face the prospects of homelessness.”
