Lord Mayor's Business

Minutes:

The Lord Mayor opened the meeting by welcoming the Councillors to the Round Room in the Mansion House. He recalled the few occasions that the City Council have left their home of City Hall such as Dublin Castle last month, the City Assembly Building on South William Street in June 2020 to mark the Millennium and from 1920 – 1924 the City Council moved their meetings to the Round Room, as City Hall was occupied firstly by the British Army and then the Irish Free State Army. 

 

It was proposed by Lord Mayor Tom Brabazon and seconded by Councillor Mannix Flynn that “In order to meet National Guidelines on Social Distancing,  this Council agrees  to meet now in the Round Room of the Mansion House and for the same reason agrees this meeting should last no longer than 105 minutes.” The motion was put and carried.

 

The Lord Mayor called for a minute silence to remember George Floyd, who was killed by a police officer in Minneapolis, Minnesota on 25th May.  He reminded Members that he has opened an online book of condolence on the Dublin City Council website until 17th June.  As of the date of the meeting over 4,400 people had signed. 

 

He also asked those present to remember former Dublin City Councillor, TD and Minister of State Gerard Brady who died on Saturday 16th May.  Gerard was elected to Dublin City Council in 1974 and elected to Dáil Éireann in 1977 representing Dublin Rathmines West / Dublin South-East.  He was also a former Minister of State at the Department of the Environment and Minister for Education.

 

The Lord Mayor also spoke of the number of deaths due to Covid 19 and suggested that the Government should consider a period of mourning.

 

Finally, he reminded Members that he has asked the people of Dublin to nominate their Covid Heroes.  They can be people in the community who have helped others during this difficult time.  Nominees can include frontline workers, local retail workers, family members who took on shopping duties, those who circulated information or organised socially distanced events in the Community.  The nomination can be done via the Dublin City Council website and the closing date for nominations is 19th June.
