Motion1 from Councillor Daniel Ceitinn

That Dublin City Council and the South East Area Office will ensure that the Parks Department and Irishtown Stadium work together to increase the playing and training capacity for young people and adults seeking to engage in sporting activities locally.

Further, that the Parks Department and the stadium will outline to the Area Committee in detail the plans they currently have for addressing the acute capacity shortage and expanding capacity in advance of the high density development of the Glass Bottle Site which will heap more pressure on capacity in Ringsend, which also serves much of the inner city.


Motion 2 from Councillor Dermot Lacey

Recognizing the related impact of the urgent requirements for flood protection measures along Sandymount and Merrion Strand – incorporating an extended promenade to Irishtown Nature Park, the desire for the a cycleway route along same and the need to tackle the ongoing and unacceptable pollution of the beach along this area and the need for an integrated approach to all of these issues, this Committee requests the Chief Executive to initiate the establishment of a task force that would enable an integrated plan and work programme to be implemented and involving all statutory bodies that have a role in these matters.


Motion 3 from Councillor Mary Freehill

That the Roads Department engage with the SEAC to discuss the standard of maintenance of footpaths necessary, to maintain a safe standard for pedestrians especially older and disabled people who may be unsteady on their feet.


Motion 4 from Councillor Dermot Lacey

That a full repair of Leahy’s Terrace, Sandymount road surface be included in a future works programme. It is full of potholes.


Motion 5 from Councillor Daniel Ceitinn

That this area committee, in line with the ongoing documentation of the history and heritage of Dublin City through bronze footpath plaques such as those in place across the city including the South East Area (South Anne Street, South King St, Kildare St, Grafton St, Molesworth St, Donor Ave, O Connell Street, Sackville St, Moore St, Westmoreland St, Dame St, to name a few) agrees that DCC southside roads should facilitate the Cabra Historical Society in the placing of a plaque outside the birth place of Irish National Invincible Tim Kelly at 12 Redmond's Hill.


Motion 6 from Councillor Daniel Ceitinn

This Committee seeks a report on the works at the Beach Road/Sean Moore Road junction and why this has commenced prior to the current Strand Road Court case being finalised; further, this Committee requests the data which underpins the assumption by the City Council that the closure of the left slip lane at this location will not contribute to congestion and a time series analysis which demonstrates the impact, or supposed lack of impact, of the closure of the left slip lane off Sean Moore road towards Strand Road, to be presented at the September meeting.--


Motion 7 from Councillor Claire O’Connor
