According to the Irish Times, the people are not part of the Home Sweet Home group which took over Apollo House, but have said that they are associated with it.

take over of the building located on the site of the old Premier Dairies on the Finglas Road occurred on Wednesday night, with one member, Colin McGettrick posting video of the event to Facebook.

McGettrick has called on others around Ireland to seize NAMA-owned buildings.

A Home Sweet Home spokeswoman has said that, while they only heard about the takeover on Thursday morning, the group are "in solidarity" with it.
