I had written a post under the title Sligo County Council Close Lissadell House
read it and come back if you wish……
And I have just received this email…. Sligo County Council ** Lissadell House is a client of Michaels by the way.
please try and get some of your facts right concerning the situation at Lissadell.
Your website dramatically announces ‘Sligo County Council close Lissadell House’.
Untrue. The Council agreed to amend the county development plan to include ‘provision’ for the “preservation of rights of way”.
This action did not change any law, but merely gave rise to due process where all interested parties could have a say.
At that point the current owners closed Lissadell House, and initiated high court proceedings _agains_t Sligo County Council.
I direct you to current reportage in yesterdays and todays Irish Times;
that is if you want facts, as opposed to the somewhat hysterical and rather creepy approach from your odd website.
I ask you to correct your website’s headline to: ‘Lissadell owners close their own holiday home despite Councils calls for mediation and compromise’.

* I have not replied to this email by the way.
UPDATE 21st january ’10
**Michael has been in touch again… and hence the ammendment to the the above notation. It is in fact noted on his website michaelwann[dot]com that in fact his art is in Sligo and Lissadell House rather than with Sligo County Council.
UPDATE 23nd January 2010
Michael I know you will be reading this….. please stop emailing me.
