July 2024 Motions



17th July, 2024


M001   Councillor Ray Cunningham

The Committee notes that many people in the south-west of Drimnagh are without easy access to green spaces and playgrounds. The committee also notes that the former Lansdowne Valley pitch and putt course is in council ownership, but has been closed for years. The committee calls on the Parks department to provide a timetable for the opening of this space as a park, connecting through to Lansdowne Valley Park, and to include a playground and community garden in the park plans.


M002   Councillor Ray Cunningham

The Committee recognises that the village of Chapelizod is being overwhelmed by traffic - massive congestion at some times of the day, and speeding cars when the roads are clearer. It is unsafe for children to walk to school or sports, or for people to cycle through the village. The committee calls for a traffic plan to be developed for the village, in consultation with residents, to reduce through traffic and improve safety.


M003   Councillor Ray Cunningham

The Committee notes that there is a persistent problem with illegal dumping at the bottle banks beside Walkinstown library, and calls for the installation of CCTV cameras to monitor the location.


M004   Councillor Máire Devine

This Committee expresses deep disappointment and frustration once again on the 3rd anniversary of the fire that closed Donore Community Centre. We insist that the council pull out all stops so that the agreed timelines for restoration are abided by –

. Tender to be issued in June.
. Completed tenders to be assessed in early August.
.  Contract to be signed in August and building works to begin in September.

Any delay must be avoided at all costs, those costs already have had detrimental effects on the community of Donore.


M005   Councillor Máire Devine

That this Committee recognises the pitch in the Liberties as “Mallin Park“and erect this name plate and “storyboard “at this location.


M006   Councillor Máire Devine

This Committee expresses strong dissatisfaction with the “RobinsonsGate” saga that is way past its due date. We insist that this essential protective measure for our vulnerable senior citizens be addressed and prioritised now


M007   Councillor Máire Devine

This Committee agree that a dedicated cleaning crew be assigned for the Liberties with particular concentration on Meath, Thomas and Francis Streets- the main economic hub/spine of the Liberties.



M008   Councillor Maire Devine

This Committee demand urgent action to protect school children and others as they cross what amounts to a “Motorway” at Chapelizod By-Pass at Inchicore. While BusConnects project has detailed plans for this significant junction it needs to be revised.  Safety measures are needed now. We call on the Traffic Department to meet with Gaelscoil Inse Chór including the young pupils to discuss and prioritise appropriate measures before the next school year


M009   Councillor Daithí Doolan

This Area Committee urges Dublin City Council, An Garda Síochána and the Department of Justice to ensure the  ...  view the full agenda text for item 10.
