Letter to the Editor: Local Government property transactions

Published in The Irish Independent 9th April 2015.

Dear Editor,

The Irish independent and Paul Melia are to be congratulated on the continued and informed focus on Local Government as evidenced by the article on Council owned property ( 8th April).

However it should be noted that, in one of the huge number of oddities in Irish Local Government, the power to purchase land is exclusively an Executive function, while the power to sell land is reserved to Councillors. The notion that the Department of the Environment that continues to impose our dysfunctional system of Local Government is examining the situation though simply fills me with despair – not hope.

Yours sincerely,

Councillor Dermot Lacey
