It was proposed by Councillor Noeleen Reilly and seconded by Councillor Deirdre Heney that “Given the huge increase in support for the league of Ireland with a 27% rise in attendances, grounds sold out and the league playing such a vital role in the promotion of sport among young people that this council calls on the Government to ensure that the betting levy collected from Football is spent in promoting the league of Ireland and Grass roots football in Ireland and not on propping.”


The motion was put and carried.


It was proposed by Councillor Sophie Nicoullaud and seconded by Councillor Máire Devine “That Dublin City Council reverse its decision to go back to the tendering process and keep BMCEA as the lead integrated design team. That DCC gives the reasons why it has decided to award single-party framework agreements by way of a dozen or so separate procurement competitions.  That CEO Owen Keegan and or Coilin O’Reilly share their view on what in their professional opinion is the most efficient and fastest way between going for 12 different tenders or retaining BMCEA as the lead integrated design team. If they would make a statement on the decision from DCC to drop BMCEA as being the most productive way to bring this project to a fast delivering after 21 years in the waiting. That an explanation is given to us on the reasons why DCC is taking for granted before coming to the councillors, that this council would agree on the disposal of the site for Block C.”


The motion was put to a vote and carried. A copy of this vote can be found in Appendix C attached to these minutes.
