Motions

6a

Motion in the name of Councillor John Lyons

To ask the manager to investigate the illegal use by motorists of the laneway between Celtic Park Road and Celtic Park Avenue and to take the necessary actions and measures to ensure that this activity ceases immediately.

 

6b

Motion in the name of Councillor Damian O Farrell

That this Area Committee discusses Cllr Mannix Flynn’s motion regarding the Artane Band which is expected to be voted on at the October City Council meeting (please see Cllr Flynn’s full motion and his reasons for the motion below).  

 

The Artane Band / Artane School of Music is located in our North Central Area and this discussion  will allow members to share their own viewpoint and listen to the views of other members.  It is obvious from reading Cllr Flynn’s ‘reasons for motion’ below that this matter causes great hurt / trauma for him and many others and I believe the issue warrants our serious consideration.  

 

 

For note 

MOTION ( Cllr Mannix Flynn) 

 

That this meeting of DCC calls on the Lord Mayor of Dublin to withdraw and desist from being  patron of the Artane School of Music/Artane Band. 

 

Reasons: 

The Patron of the Artane School of Music is Patron of the Artane Band.  It is widely documented in State inquiries the level of institutional abuse, child rape and torture that took place in Artane Industrial School itself and in particular within the Artane Boys Band. Indeed, it was in the former band room, within the institutions that many suffered their trauma. There is no disconnect between the Artane Band, the Artane School of Music and the former residential institution that was run by the Christian Brothers, the Artane Industrial School. 

It is not appropriate that the office of the Lord Mayor would be associated with such a legacy with such a history and indeed, this will bring Dublin City Council and the office of Lord Mayor into disrepute.  For many who are still alive and their families, the Artane Band in all its manifestations including the Artane School of Music, its symbols and uniform are symbols of terror and trigger deep trauma to this very day. 

 

With such campaigns that are now in existence like #metoo with such advances in the awareness of child abuse and child protection and the treatment of traumatic memory there is no reason why Dublin City Council or the office of the Lord Mayor should give official sanction to what is still deeply hurtful and painful for the many of us who suffered child sexual abuse at the hands of the Christian Brothers and others in the residential institutions that they managed. 

We who went through this, have to deal with it on a daily basis.  It is deeply hurtful for us to see the Artane uniform, the Artane symbols, the Artane Band which are still under the control of the Christian brothers, rolled out on National Media without any regard for those of us who are alive and our feelings. 

This is wrong and needs to stop. 

  

Dublin city council itself under its former title of Dublin Corporation was complicit and involved in the incarceration of thousands of children in residential institutions such as Artane, Letterfrack, Daingean under the guise of the non attendance of school act.  In recent  ...  view the full agenda text for item 6b

6c

Motion in the name of Councillor Ray Mc Adam

That this North Central Area Committee request the Area Manager to provide a report into the maintenance of Fairview Park Playground.

 

6d

Motion in the name of Councillor Racheal Batten

That this Area Committee areas that there should be 33% affordable purchase housing on the Oscar Traynor site, these homes would be available for people that currently unable to afford private homes and not available to avail of state supported housing. This would ensure the over all cost of the development would be reduces and there would be additional funds set aside for community resources.

 

6e

Motion in the name of Councillor Racheal Batten

That this Area Committee would write to the Housing Minister and ask him to provide the cost difference to the overall Oscar Traynor development if there was an increase of duplex and townhouses by 10% from a reduction of apartments on the site and could there be a mark up proposal for the same.

 

6f

Motion in the name of Councillor Racheal Batten

This area committee write to the Minister of Transport highlighting the congestion in the Santry area and that there is an urgent need to extent the proposed Metro stop in Northwood down to the Oscar Traynor Road linking it to the Harmstown Dart Station to deal with the projection development in this area.

 

6g

Motion in the name of Councillor Deirdre Heney

That the Manager, in relation to anti-social behaviour in All Saints Park, say what action he is taking in conjunction with An Garda Siochána and other stakeholders, to bring about the elimination of same anti-social behaviour and if he can make a detailed statement on the matter as residents are worried about its continued escalation with regular lighting of fires,  damage to trees and a diminution of the quality of life of nearby residents.

 

6h

Motion in the name of Lord Mayor Alison Gilliland

The North Central Area Committee recognises the environmental, health, community and recreational benefit of cycle and way walks across our City. To enhance such benefit locally, the North Central Area Committee calls for liaison between the North Central Area Office and Fingal Co.Co. to 

i)              initially remove the obstacles inhibiting passage under the railway bridge along the yet unfinished cycle/walkway along the River Mayne between Belmayne and the coast - see attached photos and 

ii)          complete this cycle/walkway in a timely manner

 

6i

Motion in the name of Lord Mayor Alison Gilliland

That the North Central Area Committee recognises that Covid restrictions has caused a significant backlog of many of our local road works, sports facilities enhancements and public realm work. The North Central Area Committee calls for this back log to be expedited to prevent a never ending impact on requested works.

 

6j

Motion in the name of Councillor Damian O'Farrell

That this area committee recognises the tremendous work being carried out by DCC officials all across the city.  Recently councillors where asked to participate in a national newspaper survey whereby one of the questions was... ‘Do you think our City is well managed “ ?  Answer Yes or No.  This type of survey question really gives no scope for Councillors to express their knowledge of the valuable work being carried out daily by DCC officials

6k

Motion in the name of Councillor Naoise O'Muiri

That the Area Office would liaise with internal DCC departments, An Garda Siochana and other stakeholders to develop and implement an action plan to address persistent anti-social behaviour problems at All Saints Park, Raheny. Residents report a range of ongoing issues including waste build-up, public urination and setting of fires within the Park boundaries with risk to the Holm Oaks there.

 

6l

Motion in the name of Councillor Naoise O'Muiri

hat Dublin City Council would build on last year’s very successful community leaf-clearing initiative on Griffith Avenue and plan an initiative for Autumn 2021 in co-operation with All Hallows Area Association.
