A few days of regrouping and rearming the troops is understandable, but, when it comes to the recent site abandonment at The La Touche Hotel, it’s been weeks.
And weeks. And a few days. And counting.
And through it all, being the paper of record for Greystones, we have attempted again and again to get a simple answer from those behind the redevelopment of this Greystones landmark hotel and its grounds into townhouses and apartments.

It would appear that the bould Sean at Carn Castle is just too busy to get back to us, despite repeated assurances that he would over the past six weeks .
Ditto Priscilla at Carn Castle, who had the misfortune of answering the phone directly when we called just a few days ago. “Sean isn’t here right now,” she told us, “but I’ll get him to contact you when he gets back.”
Meeting one John Little outside the premises last week came with a promise that he would get his people to contact the Guide that evening, to explain what the state of play is.
Again, answer came there none.
You can read the new Safety, Health And Welfare At Work notices on the bordering of The La Touche Hotel here. In the meantime, in the hope that there might be power in numbers, get in touch with Sean, and Priscilla, and let them know that the town would like to know, hey, what’s happening, brother…?
