The Dublin Docklands Development Authority (DDDA) has been warned that its draft development plan for the Poolbeg area contains an unfair "attempt to interfere with" a local GAA club's property.
Clanna Gael Fontenoy's pitches border the controversial Irish Glass Bottle (IGB) site which was bought for €412m by the DDDA, property investor Derek Quinlan and developer Bernard McNamara and is now said to be worth just €60m.
The club said: "It is apparent that there are four secondary and one primary pedestrian route proposed over the club's leasehold land. This is an impermissible attempt to interfere with the club's property interests. The club is deeply concerned about such a proposal."
It said the DDDA does not appear to have given "sufficient recognition to the property interests that the club has in the lands" and said it was "noteworthy" that the photograph of Sean Moore Park "has the club's clubhouse airbrushed out and its existence removed and replaced with extensive green foliage".
The club has a 99-year lease on lands at Sean Moore Road from Dublin City Council and also has land measuring more than 2.5 acres alongside the boundary of the IGB site.
"Developers of the lands beside the club… should not be misled into believing that future residents of any proposed development will be able to use the club's playing fields as part of the general green field site," they said.
