Re: Newbridge farm animals blocked from view

There are far more sensible ways to stop people feeding the animals than erecting a bamboo fence. The likes of goats will eat through that very quickly.

Re: Newbridge farm animals blocked from view

I haven't heard that the feeding itself is causing a problem, however, it does mean that the animals congregate down the back of the fields. Great for those out walking, but not great if you've paid in and then realise that you'd get a better view of the animals in the meadow fields if you took a wa...

Re: Biggest Kick in the teeth to the people of Donabate so far

My understanding of an appeal to ABP is that they review the submission from the ground up so that would include all documentation previously submitted to FCC. If there is no new information to add, then there is no need to resubmit to ABP for inclusion.

Re: Biggest Kick in the teeth to the people of Donabate so far

I've no problem with people criticising local representatives when it's due. My point was purely in relation to this issue where the developer appealed the FCC decision to ABP.

Re: Biggest Kick in the teeth to the people of Donabate so far

Ineffective, overfed and useless all of them. I'm not sure what local representatives co...

Re: Housing - Ballymastone

It would be interesting to understand what people expect of our local representatives. What do you see as their role? When it comes to development, I'm not sure they can do much bar voice concerns. I get the feeling there are some people who feel that they should be stopping development on the penin...

Re: Train service from Donabate to Connolly Station

Why are people still facing this problem day in day out , what are local representatives doing about it , obviously very little if the trains are still crammed every morning , surely this has to be a safety issue.

Re: Housing - Ballymastone

I would be in the same boat re FF myself. I've never voted for them. However, when it comes to local representatives, those with access to TDs and that have a party machine behind them can be more effective that many independents that just serve to make noise. There's a lot at stake on the penninsul...

I've heard what sounded like scrambler bikes late at night which I presumed was coming from Turvey. It was after 11 p.m. one night when I heard them.

Re: NCH. The world's most expensive hospital

That's what happens where there is absolutely no accountability. It will end up costing more than the Burj al Arab in Dubai and that's literally gold plated inside.

The purpose of the chicane and the traffic island is to slow outgoing traffic to allow for easier egress from the new Semple Woods estate.
That makes more sense.

That Island is so dangerous, I don't know what they were thinking, I'm glad there hasn't been ice on the roads yet this winter as it's an accident waiting to happen I dont understand it either. It's supposedly there for traffic calming, but it slows traffic leaving the village rather than entering ...

I've listened to the arguements in the media and I can see both sides of this. As a dog owner, I don't let my dog off the lead. He's a Beagle and if he got the scent of something I'd never see him again. He's also hit and miss with other dogs so that's another reason for keeping him on lead. Therefo...

New Functionality - Ability to Like Posts

Hi,

We've added functionality to Like posts. This will allow posters show that they like/agree with a post without necessarily having to respond.

You'll see a thumbs up icon in the top right hand of the post. This will allow you either like or unlike a post that you previously liked.

Same here. You're either the type of person that takes personal responsibility or you aren't. The existance of non-enforced laws makes no difference.
