DUBLIN CITY COUNCIL

SOUTH CENTRAL AREA COMMITTEE

17th NOVEMBER 2021

 

M134   Councillors Vincent Jackson and Daithí Doolan

That the Elected members congratulate all various DCC Departments, Community Groups and emergency services for their sterling work in providing a very family friendly oriented Halloween across the South Central Area and a report be drawn up for the elected members on the outcome of the various activities on the ground.

 

M135   Councillor Vincent Jackson

That this Committee seeks from An Post a commitment to increase the size of the main Ballyfermot Post Office to create a fit for purpose facility for the thousands who use the current facility on a weekly basis. Ballyfermot has now lost nearly all its Banking services which the recent closure of Bank of Ireland and the scaling back of Banking services in Permanent TSB. 20 years ago there were 4 building societies, 3 Banks.  We now have one PTB branch which does not accept cash and a Credit Union for nearly 25,000. I am aware the Post Offices are operated by contract. An Post could ensure when contracts are up for renewal the branch has the capacity to meet existing and future needs especially when the Post Office network continues to take on more business. The recently closed Bank of Ireland branch would and could make an excellent Post Office offering modern facilities. I regret a common sight in Ballyfermot is large queues outside on the public footpath and many using the service have children or are elderly.
