Plans for apartment over pub ruled out

PLANNING permission for an apartment block in north Dublin has been overturned after a local pub objected about the potential impact the development would have on its business.

Earlier this year, Dublin City Council granted roofing contractor P Rooney Roofing permission to build a two-storey development at Cross Guns Bridge in Phibsborough.

The company had proposed to demolish two derelict houses and a garage at the site and to construct a mixed-use development containing nine apartments, a retail unit and a basement car park.

It intended to provide pedestrian and vehicular access to the apartments via Phibsborough Road and a rear lane called McGuinness’ Lane.

The snooker hall and pub use the laneway for storing rubbish and the delivery of kegs, and while both businesses have access to it, P Rooney Roofing contended that it had right of way to use it.

The planning permission was turned down.
