15th March 2023


M234   Councillor Vincent Jackson

This Area Committee asks the City Council to consider the possibility / feasibility of constructing a municipal Ice Skate Rink within the City of Dublin.  It is hard to believe that there is not one Ice Rink within the Republic of Ireland and can we ask that a temporary facility be located with the City for the 2023 Christmas period.

M235   Councillor Vincent Jackson

In view of the serious issues with An Garda Síochána’s ability to satisfactorily police the Ballyfermot District within the current structure that this Committee seeks from the Minister for Justice and the Garda Commissioner the upgrading of Ballyfermot Garda from a substation to a District / Divisional Garda Station something similar to what pre-dated our amalgamation with Clondalkin in the early 000's. It is no longer acceptable that our Garda numbers are nearly halved over those years resulting in a serious reduction in policing levels whilst at the same time there are serious issues which need addressing. I was given assurance at the time of us losing the District Headquarters designation there would be no loss of services. This has proved to have been a disaster for my community.


M236   Councillor Vincent Jackson

That Dublin City Council, The Department of Justice etc. please speed up the proper development of the Cherry Orchard Implementation Group after many months of surface activity we are still awaiting some movement on this essential body to proceed with the structural deficits which plaque this great community, please we don't need more ministerial visits we need proper movement, Cherry Orchard will continue to be plagued with Social problems until we address many issues which have for so long been ignored much to the cost of the community.


M237   Councillor Deirdre Cronin

This Area Committee asks, following the presentation by Rehoboth Residents at the January 18th meeting, that DCC undertake a site visit, meets with residents and addresses in writing all traffic, safety and access issues raised.
