• Save The Globe, Ri Ra and Georges Street as we know it!
    The Central Hotel is a landmark protected building built in 1887 and The Globe and RiRa, The Library Bar have become iconic institutions on Georges street Dublin is a progressive and thriving city and that's a positive thing but these spaces have historical and cultural significance to locals and visitors alike and should not be replaced by yet another sterile, soulless hotel for tourists. If we keep chipping away at the soul of the city there will be nothing left worth visiting. Dublin once boasted the longest remaining Georgian Terrace in the world until it was demolished and replaced by the hideous eyesore that is The ESB Building in the 60s. Once these buildings are torn down there's no going back! Let's not let history repeat itself Please sign and share and take care

  • Save Havelock House from demolition
    Havelock House is one of Northern Ireland’s best-known cultural landmarks. It is also one of our most threatened buildings – developers Olympian Homes plan to tear it down to make for an eight-storey apartment block. Time is running out: Belfast City Council will decide on Olympian’s planning application in September. Its decision may end the remarkable story of the Victorian linen factory which became a television icon. As the home of Ulster Television (UTV) for almost sixty years, Havelock House had an integral role in the birth of Northern Ireland’s television industry. It was the place where iconic local series such as Teatime with Tommy, Romper Room and Good Evening Ulster were made. The building is also nationally important: it is the last surviving small station from the pioneering days of UK television. Features such as the original UTV studio are our last built record of the birth of regional television on these islands. TV history was made there. UTV was the first small regional ITV station and Havelock House pioneered a new low-cost TV production model. Its success allowed other less populous parts of the UK to have their own local stations. It was also the site of the first adult education shows on UK television, a pioneering ‘rooftop’ studio and the first satellite link-up between a UK regional station and the US. There’s more to Havelock House than television though – the building has been a familiar presence on Belfast’s Ormeau Road since 1871. After its stint as a linen factory, it became the headquarters of the All-British Trading Stamp Company, an early loyalty scheme where customers received stamps with their shopping which could be trade in for free items. The building then saw service during World War II as accommodation for soldiers who were protecting the city’s bridges from German attack. After the war, it became an engineering works and a dressmakers. Its exterior also hides a secret – beneath the plaster render applied by UTV in 1959, there is attractive polychromic brickwork and stone cut dressings similar to buildings such as the Riddell warehouse, which unlike Havelock House, have listed status. Havelock House is a versatile and historic building which stands ready for a new chapter in its remarkable story. It should the showpiece of any redevelopment of the area rather than torn down for yet another faceless apartment block. As guardians of our city’s heritage, Belfast City Council must reject any proposal for the building’s demolition and put in place an appropriate strategy for its protection.

  • Waterways Ireland to recognise Liveaboards & Houseboats in the Irish waterways
    1- Liveaboards create vibrant communities and safe spaces across canals and rivers, enhancing the charm and character of our Waterways for locals and tourists alike. 2- Houseboats are greener, reducing our ecological footprint and use of valuable resources like water, energy, waste, transport among others. Now more than ever, it's time to think about the positive changes we can make to protect our planet. 3- Liveaboards communities and policies have been successfully implemented across several European countries except Ireland currently facing a rising demand for residential and affordable housing. 4- Traditionally, people have been living in boats on Irish waterways and, for just as long, the Waterways authorities have been ignoring the matter. Basically a blind eye was turned to liveaboards 5- There are only 20 residential berths in Grand Canal Dock and a further 8 in Shannon Harbour. There are no residential berths available at any other locations and there are no residential berths available at this time.

  • Erect A Statue of Fredrick Douglas
    Fredrick Douglas escaped slavery in the US and became a leading speaker and writer in the abolitionist movement. He spent time in Ireland where he campaigned for support to end slavery. He also joined in the call to end British colonialism of Ireland. A statue of Fredrick Doughlas would serve to keep the spotlight on modern day slavery and the struggle to end racism for all.

  • Remove Columbus Memorial in Galway
    In light of the global Black Lives Matter movement, Galway City cannot, in all conscience, allow a memorial to a coloniser who stands for the millennia of systemic oppression, murder and enslavement of millions of non-white peoples to remain, as if his supposed brief visit to Galway was something to be proud of. It needs to be removed immediately, and better still, be replaced with a memorial to his victims.

  • Let Them In -3rd level places for all Leaving Cert students
    Everyone no matter what their circumstance or chance of birth deserves the opportunity to reach their full potential. Education is a powerful tool against poverty and inequality for both the individual who can access it and the generations after them. The current Covid19 pandemic poses an unique opportunity to change the entry process to 3rd level education in Ireland and let everyone who wants to be in education in. This petition is inspired by RTE broadcaster Joe Duffy using his platform to promote the importance of equal access to education throughout his life such as his campaign 'Let Them In' 40 years ago. If not now then when? LET THEM IN

  • Save Bewleys cafe Grafton street
    "Bewley’s is the heart and the hearth of Dublin" Brendan Kennelly The Beautiful Harry Clarke and Jim Fitzpatrick stainglass windows, The decorative facade at grafton streets midpoint, Attending plays or events in the cafe theatre, the grafton st balcony on a warm afternoon,a place for a special treat to catch up with family+friends or simply read by the warm fires escaping the weather outside. For close to 100 years Bewleys Grafton street cafe as a special place in the hearts of Dubliners and visitors alike. Regularly it is compared to some of the great tea rooms of continental Europe. It has played such an important part in the citys history and cultural life. Over the years many Irish cultural icons such as James Joyce frequented Bewleys cafes The Dublin city development plan recognizes that Bewleys "contributes significantly to the special and unique character of grafton street" and protects the building for use as a cafe. Losing Bewleys would not just be be a big lost for those that love but for Dublin as a city. We are in the midst of a global pandemic with big health and economic issues but it still be a shame to lose this Dublin landmark forever to become a big brand store. A solution can be found to save it. The developer who owns the building(refuses to address rental issues), was himself bailed out with largre sums by the Irish people after behaving recklessly.
