Emergency Motions


November 2020 Motions



18th November 2020


M.66     Councillor Tina MacVeigh

This Area Committee agrees that the Iveagh Markets will not be used as a hotel, student accommodation or a co-living accommodation scheme and calls on the Council to do everything in its power to prevent this happening. This iconic building was once a hub of community activity and commerce. Its history is dynamic and rich as is being evidenced through the oral history project with the Folklore society in UCD. We are witnessing the destruction of the Liberties through the wrecking ball of transient and gated accommodation that is springing up everywhere. The fabric of the inner city neighbourhood is being rapidly eroded. Preserving a building like the Iveagh markets for civic and community use must be a priority for us.


M.67     Councillor Maire Devine

That this Area Committee agree to establish a “conservation plan“ for the 3 adjoining sites that are Brú Chaoimhín, Quakers Cemetery and The James Weir Home For Nurses.


M.68     Councillor Daithí Doolan

This Area Committee would like to express deepest thanks to all the services including Dublin City Council, Gardaí, Dublin Fire Brigade, ambulance service and youth services for their hard work over the Halloween season. They ensured communities had a happy and safe weekend.


M.69     Councillor Hazel de Nortúin

This Area Committee supports those who suffered unnecessarily at the hands of the Mother and Baby Homes. We support their call for transparency when seeking information on their time spent in these institutions.


M.70     Councillor Tina MacVeigh

This Area Committee sends a message of solidarity and support to Polish women living in our community and to their friends and family back home involved in the struggle for women's reproductive rights.

M.71     Councillor Maire Devine

Under Section 205 of the Planning and Development Act 2000, that this Area Committee agrees, forthwith, to seek a Tree Preservation Order for the trees at the Brú Chaoimhín Campus in Cork Street, Dublin 8.


M.72     Councillor Maire Devine

This Area Committee supports residents whose streets, homes and wellbeing have been significantly discommoded by the construction of National Children’s Hospital- A National Infrastructure Project. Furthermore, we call on BAM to manage the traffic in the areas surrounding the site and urgently provide alternative arrangements for the worker’s car parking. We request that DCC grant “derogation” from the parking bye-laws that prioritises residents parking to allow safe access and egress for the time of the construction.
