21st September 2022



M190   Councillor Sophie Nicoullaud

Following the destruction on the 22nd of July for the 5th time of the biodiversity area maintained by Drimnagh Environmental Group on Errigal Green, this Committee ask Parks department to express with actions its commitment to support the volunteers and the work they do to make that area a better place for us all.  We are asking that Richard Shakespeare meets personally with the group to discuss the situation and to move communication forward in a constructive and positive manner. We are asking a full disclosure specifically for the Drimnagh area of the schedule of work, payments  to third  party bodies with regard to all work that has to do with nature maintenance ( parks, trees, green public spaces etc) the map of quantified work for each green area in Drimnagh for DCC staff and private contractor.


M191   Councillor Daithí Doolan

That this Area Committee notes with deep concern the serious increase in robbed cars and so called 'joy riding' in Cherry Orchard since July. 

This behaviour is wrong, it terrorises the whole community and undermines all the good work done by the community. 

This Committee calls on the Chief Superintendent to draft & implement a specific policing plan to tackle 'joy riding' in Cherry Orchard. 

This Committee urges the Assistant Garda Commissioner to release extra personnel and resources to Ballyfermot Garda Station to ensure that this plan is fully implemented. 


M192   Councillor Daithí Doolan

This Area Committee calls on DCC to install new and more effective traffic calming as a matter of urgency on Cherry Orchard Avenue to curtail so called 'joy riding' in the area.


M193   Councillor Máire Devine

That this committee commend the Open Days hosted by DCC HR Department that directly engaged on the ground with local communities to inform local residents of career opportunities in Dublin City Council and encourage them to apply. This initiative ought to be hosted in DSC with focus on most needed position.


M194   Councillor Máire Devine

That this committee express frustration at the significant delay of the refurbishment process for Donore Community Centre and note that many of the groups are unable, for various reasons, to avail of “slots” at another Centre. We again request that details be sought and serious consideration be given to renting a unit at The Barley House and Brickfield Lane for meantime use.
