• Naul - Safe pedestrian routes to school
    We need the community of Naul to come together in one strong voice to demand these changes. What we are asking for is very basic. We want our children to be able to access their school and education in the safest manner possible. For years Naul has been ignored and side lined with more and more traffic coming through the village and past the school at speed. We need to stand up now and make our voices heard and take action before its too late and someone loses their life.

  • Make public transport reliable and efficient!
    It should be the norm in a self proclaimed „city“ to offer functioning public transport. People need and deserve to be able to trust time tables, to have access to public transport, in order to commute and to rely on public transport. On paper Galway offers two different bus services - the private bus company Citydirect such as the state-owned company Bus Èireann. In reality, these companies do not fulfill their offered services. Buses do not show up, bus time tables cannot be trusted, buses arrive at self-chosen, random times and are constantly late. This must stop!

  • Swimming Pool for North Fingal
    Children in Balbriggan and surrounding areas do not have the abillity to swim. Only 6/23 schools surveyed in north county Dublin have swimming on the curriculum. Balbriggan was promised a swimming pool in partnership with the rugby club in a plan scrapped in 2016. Skerries was promised a swimming pool years previously. People have to spend time and money to access a pool outside the area. Swimming is a basic life skill and contributes to sport and health of our community.

  • Petition to get Waterford Council to buy Gallweys Hill site in Tramore
    Defining a site as an area of high amenity and then allowing it be sold to the highest bidder would be a missed opportunity for WCCC and risks it falling into unscrupulous hands. The stability of the cliff face, bird nesting area and viewing platform on this site are extremely important to the town, as confirmed by the Council when planning was denied. The next step to safeguard the site has to be the public purchase of the land.

  • Stop Ireland Outsourcing Cruel Animal Testing
    A Freedom of Information investigation by the Irish Anti-Vivisection Society has uncovered horrific chinchilla experiments on an estimated 23 chinchillas commissioned by the Royal College of Surgeons Ireland. The vivisection project, which broke animal welfare rules on multiple occasions, was intended to test a potential new treatment for chronic ear drum perforation (Tympanic Membrane Perforation). The procedures, which took place in the spring and summer of 2021, were performed in the USA at the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee. Unlike Ireland and the EU, the USA has no independent government regulation of animal experimentation so there are no legal limits on animal cruelty. Therefore, the IAVS is calling on the government to initiate the drafting of legislation prohibiting the outsourcing of animal testing or research - by any Irish laboratory, institution or commercial enterprise - to countries with weaker regulations.

  • Don't Ban Teen Disco's
    Discos are a big part of being social, making friends and having some fun. They are excellent spaces for young people to meet and they are supervised. Every teen disco venue should be in line with safeguarding rules. https://www.96fm.ie/news/96fm-news-and-sport/government-urged-to-ban-teenage-discos-for-under-16s/

  • Boycott Israel from the European song contest 2024
    I believe the world leaders are deliberately turning a blind eye to the horrific injustice being perpetrated against innocent civilians. Governments are not listening to their people. Ireland has always been to the forefront of standing up for injustice. We have a history of occupation which gives us a unique understanding of the plight of the people of Palestine. This appeal is only a drop in the ocean but then, the ocean is made up of many drops.

  • Irish healthcare workers call for a ceasefire in Gaza
    We unequivocally condemn the attack by Hamas on October 7th. This attack cannot be used to justify the collective punishment of the Palestinian population.

  • Reform Dublin Bus
    If you live in Dublin and have ever have any interactions with dublin buses you know what I’m talking about: the buses are rarely-if ever- on time… the schedule is a joke… the digital displays never tell the truth; when the driver sees you running to the bus stop, he shuts the doors and drives off; if you are a cyclist you are afraid for your life; and if you are stuck without change- good luck! We live in a modern industrialised nation; but the developing world has much better bus services. Why do we put up with grumpy, rude drivers and a bus service which can’t get our kids to school on time? Dublin Bus is a joke, but no one’s laughing. Sign up to this and let’s get the minister to institute a proper reform of Dublin Bus so we can get a service that actually works. Where the drivers are courteous and friendly and treat their passengers and fellow road users with genuine respect and care for their safety; where the drivers enjoy their job and their interactions with the public; where the buses run according to the schedule; where the information provided by the digital displays are accurate; where it’s a pleasure to take a bus in Dublin because it’s a true public service that takes care. For the environment, the workers, the public, and the city: Reform Dublin Bus!

  • Newport Road Public Footpath & Lighting
    Please help our 40-YEAR campaign to get a short footpath laid between two estates Grangewood and Rich Hill Woods on a very dangerous road, which has only become busier with trucks and fast moving traffic. Local resident JJ Ryan has been campaigning to get a footpath built for years. “This is an extremely dangerous stretch of road. There’s no lighting and no footpath between the two estates. “Pedestrians, the elderly, and schoolchildren getting on and off the local bus or cycling to school have to scramble up a very steep bank to get out of the way of traffic.” Mr Ryan, whose son was struck by the wing mirror of a passing car last year and suffered a broken arm, said that “there have been scores of near misses and accidents involving cars and pedestrians. It’s only a matter of time before someone is killed. Do we really have to wait for that to happen before something is done?” If you are a local resident, or would like to support local residents, please consider signing our petition to have a footpath built to ensure the safety of the residents. We are stronger together, and together we can ensure the safety of everyone in our community. This affects more than 200 local residents at least. Please reach out to anyone you know who can support us.
