Dublin County Board and Nama - Qué!!

Dublin County Board and Nama - Qué!!

I noted an article in the Business Post that Nama have sold a 10 acre site in South County Dublin to Stillorgan Rugby Club for €30k per acre, very nice, good for them. Interesting that the same Nama could not find it in their gift to sell the Spawell site to Dublin County Board recently for region €200k per acre. Questions should be asked, maybe their is a reasonable explanation but is is not obvious from here. Read John Costelloe's comments in his Annual Report. John also made other comments of frustration re Nama and other GAA Clubs. Is it good enough that the we meekly accept that a Goverment appointed agent can treat us in this manner?
