Re: Online Petition To Remove Beverton/Ballisk Walkway Gate

I am open to correction, but the Gallery opening was blocked by a petition. The path to connect two parts of Beverton was objected to by a number of residents (more than two) and it had nothing to do with Football as it was going through a bunch of trees. Beresford, depends on the opening. I don't k...

People only want gates and paths that benefit them. Some Beverton people didn't want a gate and path with the Gallery One part of Beverton didn't want a path across their green because it meant people from another part of Beverton would walk across it Other parts tried to stop paths and walkways to ...

Re: Local Election Results 2019

Not much difference between FF and FG, and FF did no harm to Henchy; because O'Brien and Clifford Lee act like they give a sh*t about area. Alan Farrell may as well be an MP for some English borough with his level of disinterest.

Re: Local Election Results 2019

Ok so FG poll at 24% or thereabouts but only 13.3% out here. Why? Because Alan Farrell has acted as if he has no interest in the area - doesn't even turn up for local meetings. It's a joke because there are a lot of ABC1's out here and FG has ignored the area as it plans to dump it all with a dispro...

Re: Elections

There are a lot of people worried about the degree of social housing and the way it is being snuck without any meaningful increase in facilities. Who is going to speak up and not be afraid of the PC backlash?

Re: Elections

The biggest monstrosity is not the 200 units for Tilberry, it is the 2.000 units for Ballymastone.
Alan Farrell, FG et al don't give two hoots about Donabate. It would certainly be interesting to see if this changed or continued if an FG candidate got elected out here.

After a few years, when the various landlords are renting to HAP scheme it is more likely to be 80% social housing and a ghetto. This is the thing about Irish pe...

Re: New Houses at Beresford

The apartment block is in planning permission but like everything in planning permission it is unclear as to how much will be social. In Ireland, the developer can keep his arrangements for social housing private and with the council. What a lot of the developers are doing is selling all their priva...

The only difference between FF and FG is FF are even happier with large amounts of social housing in Dublin as they want to regain a lot of the vote they have lost to the hard left and shinners. FG are for the richer men but they don't care about Donabate. So from a Donabate perspective FG have done...
