September 2021 Motions



15th September 2021


M124   Councillor Daithí Doolan

That the SCA office ensure a full study is carried out on the cause of ongoing flooding along Mourne Road, between junction of Errigal and 114 Mourne Road, and agree a time frame for works to be carried out to resolve this serious problem.


M125   Councillor Vincent Jackson

That Dublin City look to develop a Sunday Market in the Ballyfermot Area which could have the potential to bring footfall back to the heart of Ballyfermot. Over the past couple of years with changing shopping habits and the Covid 19 pandemic the area needs urgent attention. The large car-park owned jointly by DCC and the CDETB facing BCFE and the Ballyfermot Library would make a great location. Can we investigate shared usage with the CDETB.


M126   Councillor Vincent Jackson

That the Parks Department please remove the heavy vegetation from Drumfinn Ave, Cifden Road at the junction of Claddagh Road opposite No 26 etc  and the roundabout from Drumfinn Road, Ballyfermot Dublin 10. Residents are awaiting the removal since late 2020, however with Covid restrictions it was not possible to progress.


M127   Councillor Vincent Jackson

That DCC please ensure that community grants which were not paid out this year when there was huge need for same are retained in the budget and brought forward to 2022 and next years grants be doubled to assist in the re-opening of our communities with environment, music, arts, drama, sports, festivals etc. It is essential as the premier local authority, we support communities on the ground.


M128   Councillor Sophie Nicoullaud

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. This discussion will allow members to share their own viewpoint and listen to the views of other members.
