Motion submitted in the name of Cllr D. Heney (referred from the North Central Area Committee dated 17th October 2022.

That this Area Committee notesthat residents of Pinebrook and St. David’s, Artane, are extremely happy with the official naming of St. Nicholas’ Park, Artane; and noting the fact that these residents previously expressed an interest in having a commemorative plaque placed on the wall of the Oratory - Church of the Resurrection (on the park side) to commemorate the boys who are buried there and who died while incarcerated in the Artane Industrial School (permission has been granted by the owner of the Oratory and an email to such effect has been submitted in writing to the North Central Area Office - (wording of the plaque to be agreed at a later stage)) that this Area Committee agree to their request for a commemorative plaque and forward same to the Commemorative Naming Committee for consideration at its November 2022 meeting.




Assuming that the proposal is for a Dublin City Council Commemorative Plaque, the motion, if approved, should be referred to the Arts & Culture SPC. The SPC may then forward it to the Commemorations & Naming Committee for consideration.

Motion submitted in the name of Cllr D. Heney:-

“Due to the negative effects of the use of fireworks on people, animals and our environment, that Dublin City Council agrees a policy of non-use of fireworks (or supporting the holding of fireworks displays) in our communities/in our city and instead use and promote the use of alternative types of entertainment, e.g. outdoor film screenings, parades, (Bram Stoker Halloween Spooktacular, Bram Stoker Park,) at Halloween and festive occasions.”
