• No to Co-Living
    Because it is disrespectful, depressing and completely wrong. It is not the answer and the only people who would ever have to live like this are those who can't currently afford the ridiculous rent levels. Stop pushing people out of Dublin & think about the kind of cities and communities we want - not what developers want.

  • SAVE DUBLIN'S TREES
    It looks as if all routes leading to City Centre will suffer a great loss in trees/wildlife.. And Shane Ross, Minister for Transport and the National Transport Authority have been extremely vague on what steps they are willing to take to avoid this! Quite simply, this is not good enough: Dublin you have a choice to make, Dublin you have voice to be heard, Dublin this is your city and your home, Dublin don't just let them do what they want this time! Dublin there must be an ecological balance in progress and the future. DUBLIN IF WE GET THIS WRONG THERE IS NO GOING BACK TO FIX IT.

  • Love Clondalkin
    Clondalkin is over 1,000 years old and is attracting more and more visitors to view its heritage. In this regard the proposed nursing home is wholly inappropriate. The four storey building would block the view of the limestone convent while the proposed brick finish is not at all in keeping with local architecture. In addition an antique stone wall on Convent Rd., would be knocked not to mention the additional traffic that would ensue in an already gridlocked village. Such a development would detrimentally affect the historic character of Clondalkin and should be refused.

  • Give us back our bottle banks!
    We need to encourage people to recycle glass responsibly. At the moment there is no recycling bank in Macroom and the one in Clondrohid was removed and not replaced. The nearest recycling bank is in the Civic Amenity site, which costs 3 euro. It is inaccessible on foot for those who do not drive. These are barriers to responsible recycling.

  • Crainnte An Cheathrú Rua
    Tá na crainnte seo níos sine ná aon bhall den phobal, ós cionn 100 bliain d’aois an ceann. Is peaca marfach a bheadh ann cead a thabhairt do chrainnte chomh h-álainn a bheith bainte chun spás a dhéanamh do charrchlós agus d’fhoirgneamh beag. Seo crainnte a chur ár seandream, a chonaic ár seandream agus iad a dul ag an Aifreann. Is cuid lárnach den phobal iad mar go bhfuil siad ag fás in aice le Teach an Phobail agus Scoil Náisiúnta Mhic Dara. Má éiríonn linn stop a chur leis an ngearradh síos, feicfidh ár ngasúir iad agus cuimhneoidh siad orainne, na daoine a shábháil na crainnte álainne seo.

  • Traffic problems in Foxford County Mayo
    It is important because I feel the cost and construction of the crossings could have and should have been put to better use. I feel that a one-way system around secondary school would have solved the problem and would have cost less, it is also important because it puts the safety of drivers and school children on the line and since they have been constructed one fatal accident has occurred at the location. Finally, it is important for those with authority to focus on smaller projects which would benefit communities more instead of larger un-necessary projects which cost more money.

  • Save the Four Masters' Park
    The Four Masters' Park is a small green lung on Berkeley Road in the heart of the North inner-city; one of the very few. It has many historic resonances, as it commemorates the Annals of the Four Masters while the memorial itself was commissioned by Sir William Wilde and executed by James Cahill. It was given by the Sisters of Mercy for the benefit of the local community. The current plan for the new MetroLink is to consume a substantial part of our green space for the new metro station. Less than 100 metres away from our park is a station already built under the Mater Hospital. This was a part of the old Metro North plans at the time Leo Varadkar was Minister for Transport in 2012. €20 million was spent on installing a station box beneath the new adult hospital. The Metro North enabling works were completed in 2013 under the Mater Whitty Building by BAM Contractors Ltd on behalf of the Railway Procurement Agency. It makes no sense to waste €20 million of public money and destroy a beloved local park. Recently, two vacant industrial sites nearby have been identified as possibilities, yet neither have been investigated by MetroLink. Please join us in supporting this campaign.

  • BMX bike track for Kildare Town
    Kildare needs more facilities for children and adults to engage in sports to promote a healthier lifestyle benefiting physical and mental health. With BMX all Ages and Abilities are Welcome: BMX isn’t just for children, Parents and children can ride bikes together, there aren’t many sports out there that parents and children can participate in together. It’s a great way for families to bond over a common interest helping to combat the raising obesity rate and reducing screen time and promoting general well being. Kildare town is constantly growing with more new housing developments but no new projects promoting sports activity have been completed, with the communities help we can change this! With the provision of a BMX bike track being built Kildare could envision provincial and national champions coming from the BMX club that would be based there. Kildare has already produced Provincial and National champions with no local facilities! Because of the involvement of adults mentoring and coaching the younger riders there is never any prospect of antisocial behavior. Building a BMX bike track will reduce any antisocial tendencies drawing the interests of the youth to ride their bikes in a safe fun place, and help role model BMX bike riding by discouraging the use of scramblers on the Curragh plains. The BMX bike track would become a bike tourism attraction drawing families to try the sport, raising revenue for the town from extra foot fall to local businesses. For more information of what is a BMX bike track click the links below https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gfA3fBgA10g https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mXqlMh8U81M

  • Save Carragower House, Clancy's Strand, Limerick City
    Clancy's Strand, in the heart of Limerick City sits on the Southbank of the River Shannon. This pleasant tree lined street of 18th and 19th century houses, stand today as they did as far back as 1900. Clancy's Strand is especially important to Limerick City as it sits directly opposite Limerick's prime water frontage of Merchant's Quay and Arthur's Quay. When we and our visitors stand at these locations and look across the Shannon, we are looking directly at Clancy's Strand and at the heart of this view is the Georgian townhouse, Carragower House. Carragower House, built between 1780-1800 and probably the home of a local merchant, is a fine Georgian three storey, red brick townhouse. It's simplicity of design and lack of decoration exemplifies a purity in architecture produced during the 18th century. A photograph c.1880 (National Library of Ireland) shows Carragower House standing handsome and proud in its prominent position overlooking the Shannon and towards Merchants Quay and the grand Customs House (now the Hunt Museum). As many of us know, sadly, Carragower House has for the past twenty years sat unoccupied, has fallen into terrible disrepair and is now in a disastrous state. The current owners wish to demolish Carragower House to make way for a block of 3 apartments designed in a modern 20th century style, a design which is totally out of character to its surroundings. The council has granted this permission. The news of the Council's decision appeared on the internet last Friday (15th March), It was met with a huge online outpouring of anger, shock and disappointment from Limerick people. Caragower House is a unique property that is a piece of our city's historical jigsaw puzzle, a piece that the council planners should be protecting on our behalf. If you feel strongly about Limerick's Heritage, if you feel strongly about the aesthetics of our city, please, please add your name to this petition. Thank you. Nick Boston Local Resident

  • Say No To Bottom Dredging Mussel Farm, Kinsale Harbour, Cork
    To date, 25 species of cetaceans have been recorded in Irish waters (Lusher at al., 2018). All cetaceans, pinnipeds; including harbour seals (Phoca vitulina) and the Eurasian otter (Lutra lutra) are protected in Ireland under a range of national and international legislation. Under the Wildlife Act (1976) and amendments (2000, 2005, 2010 and 2012), it is an offence to intentionally hunt, injure, wilfully interfere with or disturb or destroy the resting or breeding place of a protected species (except under licence or permit from the department). The 1976 Wildlife Act applies out to the 12 nm limit of Irish territorial waters. Additionally, all cetaceans, pinnipeds and otter and are protected under the EU Habitats Directive, where all cetaceans are included in Annex IV of the Directive as species ‘in need of strict protection’. Under this Directive, the harbour porpoise, bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus), grey seal, harbour seal and Eurasian Otter are listed under Annex II, which identifies these species of community interest and whose conservation requires the designation of Special Areas of Conservation (SACs) (O’ Brien, 2016). 3. Man-made noise generated from dredging operations, both from the physical presence of the dredger, and increased water turbidity within the area have potential to cause low levels of disturbance, including the masking of communication and induce behavioural impacts such as displacement from important habitat (O’Brien, 2016). Recently published literature on the impacts of dredging on marine mammals in Aberdeen Harbour found that bottlenose dolphins exhibited avoidance behaviour to dredging in a highly urbanised foraging patch, despite the expected high level of tolerance given the high level of vessel activity in the area (Pirotta et al., 2013). A similar review by Todd et al., (2014) found that in regard to dredging activities, the effect on marine mammals depends on the type of dredger used, state of operation, local sound propagation conditions and the receiver’s sensitivity and bandwidth of hearing. It also highlighted the potential for accidental collision with marine mammals. The review concluded that noise from dredging although perceived as being below the injury threshold for permanent hearing loss (PTS), according to criteria outlined in Southall et al., (2007), highlighted the potential for temporary damage to hearing (TTS) to marine mammals, such as the harbour porpoise after prolonged periods of exposure, also found in a more recent study (Kastelein et al., 2012). Indirect impacts from exposure of marine mammals to anthropogenic noise from dredging operations can result in changes to protected species physical environments, affecting prey distribution and introducing toxins and pollutants from dredge spoil.

  • Use the vacant Dunnes site on Sarsfield St, Limerick city
    It’s important that this building is used so that the local authority’s plans to redevelop Limerick city’s waterfront can begin. It’s currently casting a shadow on any plans to further develop as per Limerick 2030. It lies vacant as a housing crisis continues unabated.
