Donabate Dexter

Hi, We’ve been buying eggs from Peter at Donabate Dexter for the past number of weeks. The eggs are fab and the service is brilliant. I don’t have any connection to the business other than as a happy customer. The good weather is encouraging the hens to lay so supply is high at the moment! Give Pete...

Re: Village Butcher Closing

That's a good post Aoifey. The simple reason the butchers closed is that not enough people bought their meat there. It's not SuperValu's fault that most people prefer to shop there. We could always try an imposed socialist approach, but that's not working out too well in Venezuela. Many people whin...

Re: Village Butcher Closing

It looks to me like SuperValu is employing the Walmart business model. No independently run small business is going to survive that!

Re: Supervalu

Self checkouts mean fewer jobs and less hours for our neighbours and young people. SuperValu Donabate is one of, if not the hightest profit-making shops.in the country. Do they really need to cut their staff costs by 25%? For what it's worth, I have no affiliation with SuperValu employees; I'm just ...

Re: Antisocial Behavior (Please read Admin Note before posti

Every crop of teenagers has a subset that gets a whiff of itself and behaves badly. This has been going on forever - even Plato is credited with attributing a quote about it to Socrates. This is nothing new for Donabate. Some of you may have even been those kids when you were their age. A number of ...

Re: Ballisk Walkway opening times

Looks like those wanting the gate locked have upped the ante. They are now using a large chain and padlock to lock the gate closed.
Wonder how long it will take for the submissions to council to be heard.

Re: Ballisk Walkway opening times

Completely agree with you davidp. The original "agreement" was made sixteen years ago and is well due for a spot of democracy.

Also, completely happy to encourage and support your friend in keeping the gate open as it suits in the interim..

Re: Ballisk Walkway opening times

Jellyhead,

They lock a padlock onto one side of the locking mechanism of the gate so that the official gate lock can't be locked. A simple but effective method. They must remove it when they pass through because it isn't always there.

The current idea would be to provide a centre for people who work from home for a corporate or who work for themselves to have an office space. This would include hotdesking, permanent desks, meeting rooms and ...

Re: Major Incidents in the village on Ssaturday last

The woman who was assaulted posted it to the Donabate Village page. She is someone I recognise from.around the village and seems very credible to me.
It's shocking behaviour, regardless of where these young people live.

Does anyone need soil? We have loads from a garden project free to collect. Good quality; lots of clay. Be great for growing roses and hydrangeas!

Re: To the people with badly installed house alarms

If I could figure out which of my neighbours owns the house alarm that goes off every morning around 7am (I'm guessing when they leave) I would speak to them about those few seconds of blaring alarm that they obviously don't consider a problem. There are four working people in my home, covering thre...

Re: leaving Cert Holiday

I think you have let yourself down with that post, Estuarine. I don't know what you hope to achieve with your "blunt" assessment of the OP's presumed choices about TY.
My own 17 year old skipped TY and is taking a gap year now. I have zero concerns about her level of maturity.
