    The houses would also be haunted by the ghost of Ollie Byrne.

    Maybe they haven't learned their lesson?

    The situation with Shels to the best of my knowledge is.

    They are debt free and operating at a very small
    profit.

    They have NO remaining equity in tolka- they have used all the €€€€ from it to pay off debt and loans taken by OB.

    When they leave they will have a small amount available to them- in the region of about €1mill was last I heard- but on the flipside they will effectively be homeless.

    DCC have a ban on any new residential rezoning until something like. 2016- meaning nothng can be built on tolka.

    Shels announced 2010 would be the last in tolka- but it seems they will be there for the short term future.

    They have currenty no plans/ ideas where their long term future lies- but the preference is to get back to ringsend.

    Exactly, well said Dodge. Big difference in being ABLE to pay more and WILLING to pay more. $hels - have they learned their lesson? Nope. 1st Division nobody's with ideas of grandeur.
