Default Housing crisis: are there any occupations in Cork?

Given the housing crisis in the country, and in Dumpland in particular; there have been a number of controversial occupations of vacant buildings in the capital where the problem is most acute.

But I reckon it's pretty bad here in Cork city too - has anyone heard of any occupations here and do you think they are justified as a means of protest?

The connolly youth movement were occupying private property on the mardyke a few weeks back but cork guards (not wearing bally-clavas) turfed them out.

They are ass-holes of the highest order so no doubt will pull another stunt to ride the coattails of those work allergic dub "activists"

I recall a building next to the Ovens bar on OliPlu being occupied too?

Not to mention all those tents down by Electric. I thought I had dreamt that til I cast my mind back on seeing this thread.

These "activists" would deem Squatting a full time occupation.

When they fill in their job application forms they put next the question Q. Former Occupation - "Full Time Squatter".

JOD would classify himself as a protest supervisor when he is talking to his dole supervisor
