While Danny may have a point about "burying our ghosts of a clerical tyranical past" the way these cowboys went about it was totally wrong.
They should have to lobbied for the building to be delisted and then apply for planning permission to have it demolished.
Anyway I doubt that "burying our ghosts of a clerical tyranical past" was the main driving motive in the minds of those responsible for this criminal behaviour just goes to show that while clerical tyranny has (almost) been consigned to the past Some of Irelands other questionable attributes like corruption, the cute hoor mentality and the notion that the law only applies to the little guy are all very much alive and well !
