Last Summer our reporter Valerie Cox visited the Tower Hill estate of 55 houses in Ballymote in Co Sligo at the request of residents who said their lives had become intolerable through anti-social behaviour, vandalism and intimidation by settled travellers. People had moved out and only 18 of the 55 houses were still occupied. Last weekend Valerie returned to Tower Hill and she spoke to Sean as did Sean former local Councillor Pat McGrath and to Martin Collins from Pavee Point.http://www.rte.ie/radio1/today-with-sean-o-rourke/programmes/2014/0603/621248-today-with-sean-o-rourke-tuesday-3-june-2014/?clipid=1591514
