Councillor for Dún Laoghaire, Cormac Devlin has requested and secured an enforcement notice which has been sent by Dún Laoghaire Rathdown County Council to the owner/developer of the former Cumberland Inn Pub (on Cumberland Street and Clarence Street) which requests them to secure and clean-up the ugly eyesore that once was the Cumberland Inn Public House.
"This prominent site which is on the entrance into Dún Laoghaire Town must be kept in a better condition if there are no immediate plans to re-develop same. It is not fair nor right for local residents to have to contend with this dilapidated building on their doorsteps and therefore it must be cleaned up as quickly as possible" according to Cllr. Devlin.
The developer now must comply with the enforcement notice or face penalties including remedial works which he/she must pay for (if carried out by the Council on his/her behalf).

CUMBERLAND INN PUBLIC HOUSE
Motion: Councillor Cormac Devlin:
“That the Manager take all steps necessary to deal with the un-sightly state of the former Cumberland Inn Public House (on the corner of Cumberland Street & Clarence Street) Dún Laoghaire? Also, please advise what, if any communication has taken place between this authority and the owner of the site to-date?”
Notices under the Derelict Sites Act, 1990 have been served on the owner of this property which has now been placed on the Council’s Derelict Sites Register. The Property Management Section has not received any communication from the owner of this property.
