O’Mahony plans house in Enniskerry
ENNISKERRY MAN Tiarnan O’Mahoney, whose investment bank ISTC collapsed last year with losses of up to €850 million, has applied for permission to build a sprawling property in the area.
O’Mahoney, with the backing of Minister Dick Roche, wants to knock down his house and rebuild on the site, a property of 9,600 square feet, almost double the size of the existing property
he planning application is for a twostory home finished in granite and slate, where he and his family hope to ‘reside in comfort for many years’.
Minister Roche has asked planners to look favourably on the proposed development.
The local man was the chief executive of International Securities Trading Corporation when it failed, leaving investors to absorb significant losses. He is currently Chairman of the Pensions Board.
The former senior of AIB previously wanted to build a three-story, 13,000 square foot house, but was told to scale down the plans as the area is one of special amenity.
Any developments must blend in with the surrounding landscape. An architect has said that the existing house needs considerable repair work and has little insulation.
