Re: Good places for S man

Oh I'd have to disagree a bit there! We went to the Newbridge House one last year - the set up wasn't great at all. Then we were left sitting in what could only be described as a 'Cloakroom' for 45 mins with about 60 other people, loads of screaming children and no christmas music or anything to kee...

Re: Little Darlings and arson

This topic is about anti-social behavior from youths in or outside our community - I find the petty comments of some people on here really ironic! We are all entitled to our point but mocking and looking for fault in someone who's point you don't like is very childish - great example to the youth in...

Re: Donabate Community College

OK so 57% went onto further education. This does not mean 43% failed I presume. Did this 43% not get enough points to go onto their selected course? Or did they even apply for a course? Maybe some students decided to take a year out and travel before continuing on with their education... How did all...

Re: Beverton Terrace Houses Donabate

Have a look at the property price register website. They go back to 2010 and would show all prices that houses were sold for then! In 2010 houses in Beverton seemed to be going from anywhere between €280k to €340k. https://www.propertypriceregister.ie/Website/npsra/PPR/npsra-ppr.nsf/PPR-By-Date?Sear...

Re: Beverton Terrace Houses Donabate

Hi DL, Living in Beverton myself just over 2 years. I'm in a semi-detached but my next door neighbours are in a terrace. They have 4 young children and a dog and never hear a peep 'through the walls' . There's a small galley by their front door for their bins also so no need to wheel them through th...

Re: Child Minder Rates

@ Freckles, Do I think €35 a day is fare, honestly NO! If I could afford more I would pay every penny I have to have my child cared for in the best possible way. Can I afford creche fees of up to €1150 a month, NO! Obviously I'd love to not work and spend all my time caring for and bringing up my ch...
