Re: Dog Minder needed for end of June

Hi, yes we found a lady called Haidee out in Ballyboughal who looked after him. She was minding a few dogs at the same time and it was a sort of semi-kennel/home environment arrangement. He seemed to get on pretty well.

Destruction of tress in Newbridge Demesne

I'm a daily walker in Newbridge Demesne. I'm really baffled as to the ongoing removal of trees from the park. The council seem to be in a tree felling frenzy. The trees around the side of the house have been removed, exposing what was once a lovely secluded spot for picnics and children playing (bef...

Re: New By Laws protest

I'm a responsible dog owner. I pick up after my dog and keep him on a leash near people. Recently we were allocated an off leash area in the park which is completely unsuitable. It's a mucky field with a gate wide enough for dogs to run out onto the adjacent road (Cobb's Lane). Dog owners are probab...

Dog Minder needed for end of June

I know there's been a few posts about this before but the recommendations I've seen here seem to be all for kennels. I'm looking for a dog minder in the area to look after our dog for 4 days at the end of June/beginning of July. He's very nervous and doesn't do well in a kennel environment or where ...

Re: Posters on hearse road

I agree, they are not only dreadful, they are misleading and there are too many of them in one small area. I don't think there should be any posters at all for this referendum, especially if they are going to contain material that is incorrect and scare-mongering.

Re: Supervalu

One of the biggest problems I find with our local Supervalu is that, quite often, their tills do not register special offers. I've been caught out a few times and didn't realise until I checked my receipt at home. Often there will be a sticker on the shelf with one price and when you go to pay the p...

Chimney Sweep needed

Hi, could anyone recommend a chimney sweep who is experienced in cleaning chimneys where there is an integrated wood burning stove. Stove would have have to be removed and re-instated for cleaning. Thanks in advance.

Re: Up in smoke

I have teenagers. They won't go through the village if these gangs are hanging around. I know this sort of thing has been going on since I was a teenager myself, which isn't yesterday, but that doesn't make it right or acceptable. They shouldn't be "giving lip", they should be taught how to behave r...

Is it not a bit late to move the planning permission notice now? That should have been there as soon as permission was sought.

Re: Cars 'Parked' on the Beaverstown Road at Educate togethe

They should just shut the drop off zone. I've had children in the school myself and this problem has been ongoing for years. It obviously isn't working. Why parents can't park in the Community Centre and walk the short distance to the school is beyond me. Access to the drop off zone should be reserv...

Re: Planning Permission for additional 3 houses in Orchard V

I can't understand how they can get away with putting the application for planning permission is not on the site itself. Surely this contravenes planning guidelines. It's ironic that the Orchard View development has hoarding advertising an estate surrounded by trees while, in fact, they've removed t...

Re: Teens Spitting on People in Railway Station

Driving home from the park this evening and there was a bunch of teenagers, around age 14/15 at a guess, at the Hand who appeared to be throwing stones across the road over the traffic. Lovely. Where are all the parents?
