Government support dropped off hughly ,gardai numbers dwindled ,lack of access to many sporting facilities , councils rehousing bad tenants in a rotation chain lead to the Crime ridding estates we are seeing now.
If Councils had a zero tolerance in re housing bad tenants and injected large funding to those/these estates we may of had a different outcome.
