Just in. Photographic evidence that Alan Farrell has actually set foot in Donabate. It's possible that he just popped over to buy a pizza in Smyths.

Re: Travellers mess

They were in Donabate for two nights I think but the mess they made up in the allotments was shocking. I was up there yesterday couldn't believe what they left. I would say that people would get together and tidy it but without being rude or describing too much you'd be handling stuff that you would...

Best of.luck to you and to all the people recently moved/moving to Donabate. I absolutely agree with you on many points but especially with the point about people caring about where they live.

Re: Regret Buying Home in DONABATE?

Before buying, I was looking at much smaller units in Beaumont or Clongriffin. I absolutely stand by my decision to buy in Donabate. Completely agree with this-we were looking at a house in kildare at the time we bought here. 2/3 the size and would have had a good 20 min drive to s train station. Sa...

Been here 15 years and I've never been so glad to get the likes of Beresford and Rahillion in our community. Sure our local politicians have dumped us in it and we've had to put up with an almighty load of crap but already these estates have melted right in to the community. Everywhere in Dublin is ...

Joe Brady the window cleaner also fixes roofs. He fixed flashing on ours. He’s a really good guy if it’s beyond him he’ll give you the number of another roofing specialist. His number is on the Donabate Village fb morning age if you don’t have it.

Re: Elections

At this stage I’m leaning towards Bob Dowling(I am not normally an FG voter).If the community wants anything to be done looks like he’d be the main route to the government and get that Tilsbury monstrosity stopped. Might give Mulville 2nd but that’s it.
