The following Emergency Motions were tabled:

 

Emergency Motion in the names of Cllrs. Christy Burke, Anthony Flynn & Nial Ring.

 

That this Area Committee express our heartfelt sadness to the family and community of the late Fergus McCabe.  Fergus was a champion of the people and fought against injustices, was a leader and a man of great dignity.

 

ORDER: Agreed.

 

Emergency Motion in the names of Cllrs. Ray McAdam & Colm O'Rourke

 

That this Area Committee calls upon the Executive to provide a detailed update on the works undertaken to date in respect of delivering and implementing the Neighbourhood Traffic Schemes in East Wall, Cabra, Stoneybatter and Montpelier. Furthermore, this Committee calls upon the Executive to put in place a meeting with Area Councillors before the end of this month so that progress is not lost in advancing these most needed neighbourhood schemes.

ORDER: Agreed. Matter to be included on agenda for meeting to be organised with Central Area Councillors and the Environment & Transportation Department to discuss a number of issues.

 

Emergency Motion in the names of Cllrs. Janice Boylan, Nial Ring & Joe Costello

That this Area Committee calls on Iarnród Éireann, the National Transport Agency and all other relevant stakeholders to investigate, assess and develop a DART commuter station to be located at the Canal end of Croke Park, which would be complementary to the DCC housing and National Handball and Community development at Sackville Avenue. This should be done as part of the proposed plan to extend the DART service to Maynooth and, given that the line is already in situ, it is the view of this committee that the provision of a station at this location would provide a deliverable, cost effective, and much needed addition to the public transport offering in the area. Furthermore, it is the view of this committee that the possibility of the provision of similar facilities at Cross Guns Bridge should also be assessed as the proposed extension of the DART represents a unique, one-off opportunity to provide alternative and additional public transport options for the area. Finally, this committee instructs the Area Manager to write to the Minister for Transport advising him of our deliberations and agreed position on this matter".

ORDER: Agreed. Letter on behalf of the Central Area Committee to be sent to the Minister for Transport.  Letter on behalf of the Central Area Committee to be sent to the National Transport Authority.

Emergency Motion in the names of Cllrs. Cat O'Driscoll, Eimer McCormack, Nial Ring, Cieran Perry, Janice Boylan & Joe Costello.

 

There are valuable and indeed priceless artefacts contained in the Magdalene Laundry building on Sean McDermott Street, and members are concerned that some of them may be in a perilous condition, having suffered long term neglect as well as exposure to internal and external elements which have caused this deterioration.

 

In light of the foregoing, and in order to ensure the preservation of these artefacts, this committee agrees that DCC should immediately commission and complete, a comprehensive  ...  view the full minutes text for item 16.
