Re: This place is getting worse

Dearg11 you sound like you have the making of a local manifesto of some kind - sustainable development, planning enforcement, a Garda station for Donabate. Why don’t you stand for election? Genuine question. Just a concerned resident of Donabate , unfortunately my inability to sustain diplomacy wit...

Re: This place is getting worse

Donabate doesn’t feature in a list of the fastest growing towns in Ireland (2). That said, Donabate isn’t even growing as fast as Lusk, Rush, Ashbourne or Kinsealy. And now look forward, to the end of expansion plan which is already in progress: A target of 5,200 additional homes, giving a populati...

Re: This place is getting worse

I couldn't agree more , it is very sad to see. We are literally sleepwalking into this town becoming a lawless kip. I am not being dramatic but if we don't stand up and do something now , just picture the place in 10 years time. If locals continue with the apathy that's been shown recently then we d...
