Motion in the name of Councillor Damian O'Farrell

That this Area Committee supports the Killester WW1 Memorial Campaign in its quest to create a permanent memorial in the green area adjacent to the old Legion Hall in Killester Garden Village. The memorial will raise public awareness of the historical significance of the area and will commemorate the Irish WWI veterans who were housed in this area.  The campaign committee are looking for direction from DCC and request a site meeting with DCC Parks in order to discuss a suitable memorial and site location. 



Motion in the name of Councillor John Lyons

This Area Committee calls on the Chief Executive and senior planning officials to initiate a de-zoning of the Chivers site on Coolock Drive and initiate a compulsory purchase order of said site for a price the site was valued at pre the 2018 rezoning.



Motion in the name of Councillor John Lyons, Lord Mayor Alison Gilliland & Councillor Dearbhail Butler

Noting the absence of a publicly-owned full-sized, all-weather soccer facility in the Artane-Whitehall local electoral area, this Area Committee calls on the area office, the Dublin City Sports and Wellbeing partnership and all other relevant sections of the city council, in consultation with the football clubs in the area, to work on the formulation of a plan and process for securing for the many hundreds of children and young people across the area who train and play football every week of the season a vital, much-needed sports facility.



Motion in the name of Councillor Donna Cooney

That the North Central Area Committee supports the adding of the iconic shelters on Clontarf promenade to the list of protected structures.



Motion in the name of Councillor Donna Cooney

That this Area Committee agree funding be provided from any surplus budget in 2021 to replace the wooden seats on the shelter after the boat launch.



Motion in the name of Councillor Deirdre Heney

In relation to request from some residents, that the "circles" of Croydon Park and Marino Park in Marino be gated in order to;


(a) protect children who bolt from the park chasing balls or dogs from the park, running straight onto the road;

(b) protect dogs that run out the gate from the park and

(c) prevent/reduce antisocial behaviour i.e. loud music and "loitering" in the evenings/nights, can the manager agree to examine and consider same and make a statement on the matter as residents feel that adding gates to the parks would help with all of the above. Croydon Park only 1 of the 3 entrances has gates; for the lower circle - Marino Green - there are none; perhaps a system could be agreed with willing local residents for the locking and unlocking the gates each morning/night.



Motion in the name of Councillor Deirdre Heney

In relation to the decision to close off access to the boat ramp opposite the Clontarf Yacht & Boat Club on Clontarf Road, that the manager give a detailed explanation as to why this happened, as regular users of the facility over the past 8 years, continue to be upset about the lack of access to the boat ramp.
