Re: Orchid Close

Do you mean 'Orchard Close'?

You'd need to contact the schools directly, there are two:

Re: Public Meeting - Planning Moratorium - Tuesday 26th

They put bicycle lanes and tunnels in place when the motorway junction was built, so yes, I would expect them to run a bicycle lane the full length of the Hearse road, and along the distributor road.

Properly designed and built cycle infrastructure would not put cyclists at risk.

Re: Newbridge farm animals blocked from view

Technically, there is a Cafe and there is a Shop, but jaysus what a miserable effort, especially when compared to what Malahide castle has on offer. Someone was told to stock a gift shop, and they did the bare minimum. Any more than three people in the queue for coffee, and the whole system falls ap...

Re: Semple Woods new development

I think the location is good. Donabate isn't that big (yet) so you can't go far wrong with location. Easy walking distance to the Train station, and to Newbridge park. Some day there might be a bicycle path across the estuary to Malahide, but don't hold your breath. You'll aways be near the sea, and...

Re: Train service from Donabate to Connolly Station

My experience (trains only) is that things have gotten worse since the 10-minute dart interval was introduced a few months ago. I get the 09:02 in the morning: sometimes there might be 1 or 2 seats if you're prepared for an undignified scramble to get to them. No problem with standing room. I believ...

Its a bit early for much of an opinion, the show houses aren't built yet so its mostly a muddy field.

This is the planning application, might be of interest?http://planning.fingalcoco.ie/swiftlg/a ... =F17A/0113

Re: Politicians: Hot or Not?

If you wouldn't call Lorraine Clifford-Lee that to her face, then you shouldn't say it here either. She's the only politician in the last few years that I've seen going door-to-door when there wasn't an election in progress.

I'd have no problem telling Alan Farrell that he is indeed an arrogant git.

Re: New pedestrian entrance to Newbridge park

I don't understand the 'safety' argument. I think nearer to the Beverton or Beresford estates would have been a more sensible location. Would facilitate more people, and would have reduced the distance children have to walk/cycle along the road.

But I got distracted by their retweeted video showing Israeli soldiers pointing guns at Medics, and pulling an injured man off a stretcher to try to stop him being treated. WTF Israel?

Wriggle confirm that the restrictions remain in place until the iPad is no longer used for school work. I think the restrictions now are a bit more robust than previously used.

For example, if they are locked down by the school supplier, does this makes them virtually unusable outside term time, which is about a quar...
