As I've said, I know people on the inside and they say everythings grand. Have you also read yesterdays examiner http://archives.tcm.ie/irishexaminer/2007/06/13/story34973.asp and todays CorkMan? In the Corkman, your one says that John Barry was quoted saying "I would say to the people of Mallow to call into my local branch manager in AIB and they will see that I am not going broke." and also says that Mr. Barry is providing a respite centre in Kennell Hill for the mentally handicapped people (at no charge) in St. Joseph's foundation in Charleville. - "This is not the act of someone who is going broke".or hang on for Abbey Wood and risk the builder going bankrupt before the house is finished. I have already seen the plans for Abbey Wood and am impressed. Decisions decisions....
The launch is imminent according to Sherry Fitz. They are awaiting the brochures and prices to be confirmed apparently. Will post the details when I hear back from them.Tonio - Would have thought there is also the option of still buying in Castlerock and not paying stamp duty. I reckon there are at least 10 houses for sale in the estate and most are advertised as "no stamp duty for owner occupier".
I've looked at the Abbey Wood web site and feel the houses are quiet a bit different to Castlerock (personally don't like a living room on the 1st floor). Have you seen a site layout, that would be interesting. Any idea of price or autual launch date?
Looks like that jet was sold in a hurry and for a knock down price!!Actually, I've a friend that works there. Heard the rumours so I asked. Said too much hiring was done over last year without management approval. they made more money the year before without all the employee overhead, so they're just going back to the old way. If they aint selling the jet, then you know they're not going going under!
