Hundreds Facing Eviction in Tyrellstown


Cllr PAUL DONNELLY from Sinn Féin talks to Noel McGuinness about the facing of the eviction in Tyrellstown. More than 100 families in Cruise Park Drive face losing their homes as the fund that owns the properties seeks to sell 103 houses in the area over four years.

It is understood 40 households in the estate have received notification their leases will not be renewed, with the notice period varying depending on how long they have lived at the property.

Residents will not have their leases renewed in the wake of an agreement between Twinlite and Beltany Property Finance, a Goldman Sachs company to which Twinlite owes money secured on the houses.

Goldman Sachs bought the Twinlite loans in 2014 from Ulster Bank, which originally loaned the cash to build the houses.
