    Default How is this New Jail - Thornton Hall - coming along?

    I have not heard anything about it in a while.

    Anyone know where I can get pictures to see how its progessing? Supposed to be ready next year.

    Will they have a wing for FF, the Builders & Bankers?

    How much was paid for the bit of land they are going to build it on?

    Yes it is indeed supposed to be ready by next year...last time I checked there wasn't a brick laid.

    And I was talking with a govenor of another prison recently who said that he'd be surprised if it's built by 2025 at the rate we're going. Apparently, there's no money for it now...surprise surprise.

    Maybe NAMA will swallow this little piece of over-paid land up as well.

    €30 million for 60 acres wasn't it. Came with no planning.

    They bought it for €30 million by all accounts...they'd nearly build it for that amount these days...

    Do you know who owned the land? From the IT "The 150-acre prison site at Kilsallaghan near Swords was acquired in controversial circumstances for €30 million in 2005. The purchase price per acre was far higher than any other sales in the area at that time"

    Michael McDowell's monument to justice in the State, pity he didn't bother tightening up the laws on white collar criminals, but I suppose that would have been rude considering that they were financing his party. What a merry go round.
