Motion in the name of Councillor John Lyons

This area committee supports the proposal for an all-weather football pitch on the coolock Lane park site for Kilmore Celtic FC and John Vianney FC, two local football clubs that continue to play a significant and much-valued role in the lives of hundreds of young people in the community.



Motion in the name of Councillor John Lyons

Motion in the name of Councillor Alison Gilliland

The North Central Area Committee recognises the congested flow of westbound traffic from the Malahide Rd to the Coolock Interchange at peak evening hours and the congested eastbound traffic from the Coolock Interchange towards the Malahide Rd at morning peak times. The North Central Area Committee recognises that part of this traffic is coming from and going to the Clonshaugh Industrial Estate. The North Central Area Committee also recognises that the Oscar Traynor Road will become an even busier east/west artery when Oscar Traynor Land Initiative is developed. Therefore to better manage traffic flow into and out of the  Clonshaugh Industrial Estate, the  North Central Area Committee requests that the following actions be taken


i)              a westbound turn right filter lane and filter light be installed into the Industrial Estate (coming up the road from the Northside Shopping Centre) and that  

ii)              a viability study to build a roadway out of the Industrial estate onto the R139
