• Improve the 350 Bus Service
    The 350 bus service is highly used, connecting rural villages such as Kinvara, Ballinderreen, Ballyvaughan, Doolin and surrounding areas with Galway city. For many young people this is their only means of travel to Galway city, it is especially important to those attending university in town as with the housing crisis students often cannot afford or even find accommodation in town and rely on this service. Despite the amount of people this bus service should be serving, people are frequently left stranded at their bus stop due to the bus already being packed full at the Cliffs of Moher and other tourist attractions along the way. On several of occasions in the last two years I have waited up to an hour for the bus to arrive only for it to drive past the stop without even stopping in Kinvara, where more than ten people have been left to find alternative ways to town. This is especially frustrating to those trying to get the five o'clock bus on weekend days as the next bus does not come until 8. I was driven to make this petition with my friend Síofra when only today she was left stranded by a passing bus in Kinvara, for the third time since she has started university. Additionally, TFI provide this route with the lower capacity buses which have room for significantly less passengers than the buses used to serve Gort and its surrounding areas. The 350 bus route was referred to the Guardian as being "the most scenic bus route in Ireland" in 2022, as most of the route is now part of Discover Ireland's Wild Atlantic Way tour. While one can appreciate the push for tourists to avail of slow travel and it is wonderful to see our surrounding areas being promoted, the 350 bus service is not a luxury to us as locals, it is a necessity. Signing this petition is a demand for change from the National Transport Authority (TFI) to provide more frequent buses as there is a very clear demand for hourly bus services. I am sure if you ask any bus driver on this route they will be very familiar with this problem, but unfortunately it is not in their control to change this. It is up to the National Transport Authority to acknowledge this problem and resolve it with an increased servicing of this area. TFI are unlikely to attend to this issue without political power behind us as individuals, but collective action and a push from local Councillor Joe Byrne, Galway South-East TD's Ciarán Cannon, Séan Canney and Anne Rabbitte could be all we need for this change to happen. If you have been affected by the poor servicing, we understand your frustration! Please consider signing this petition, which will be presented to the relevant TDs and our local Councillor as well as TFI. Please also consider sharing this petition as I'm sure you know someone who has also experienced this. Thank you, Aoibhín and Síofra

  • Construct a Footpath to our School
    As a parent and concerned resident of Youghal, I'm fearful for the safety of our children going to school daily with the lack of a footpath leading to the school from the bottom of the Newline to Pobail Scoil Na Trionoide. There are over 1,500 people attending the school daily including Children and staff. This makes for an extremely busy place. The right for our children to walk to school safely is not just about convenience, it's about their fundamental right as citizen. According to UNICEF's convention on the rights of the child (article19) governments must do all the can to protect our children from harm. I believe that this includes providing them with a safe route to and from school. Our school is growing annually, thus creating a greater risk of an accident. There is so much happening on Cork Hill. The largest portion of the town is living up there. Also very close to the school there are factories, industrial units, Hospital, Ambulance base, Petrol station, Athletic club, Rugby club, water tower several farms, planning for a health centre the list goes on. If this footpath was built it would take some pressure off Cork Hill and make the strand area more accessible to our children & all residents of our town. I understand that infrastructure projects like this require funding and planning, but I believe our children's safety should be prioritised. The project would benefit our community now and for future generations. I urge Cork County Council and our government to act now. CONSTRUCT A FOOTPATH TO OUR SCHOOL. By signing this petition you are standing up for the safety of Children and showing your support for making their journey safer every day........

  • Roscommon needs more homes
    Roscommon is suffering from a chronic shortage of liveable homes, with virtually no new housing estates being developed. Our county is now officially the worst place in Ireland for new builds, according to the Irish Independent. To add insult to injury, there are more than 4,000 vacant homes in Roscommon. We call on Roscommon County Council to take action on vacancy and dereliction, to build more public homes, and to do more to encourage developers to build affordable homes in our county.

  • Extend DART+ to Kilcock
    Kilcock has become an important commuter town and must treated as such. Residents in the area are becoming increasingly and justifiably frustrated with the transport options in the town; an unfit train service, and a bus service that is unreliable and lacking punctuality. The people of Kilcock deserve better. The NTA will be reviewing the plans in 2025. We must throw our full support behind a campaign for a "bolt-on" service to the train depot, that would facilitate a station and secure the DART+ for Kilcock.

  • Reopen train line Cork - Midleton - Youghal
    With growing developments and population around Youghal area, train lines can reduce traffic and improve public transport for people living between Youghal-Cork. There are around 20k cars travelling on N25 coming through Castlemartyr a day. New developments in the area mean more cars and further traffic. Proper train line could help reduce it.

  • Save Roscommon Town Post Office
    Our Post Office has been established for decades, which is part of the social, economic and cultural heritage of Roscommon Town. It is a landmark building in our town centre, which creates footfall, vitality and viability at this location. The use of the Post Office is part of the Cultural Heritage of the town and therefore must be protected under Planning legislation.

  • A 'no carbon' New Year
    At COP 28, Leo Varadkar spoke on the news about false solutions, like carbon capture and storage. These insufficient solutions are a distraction and so many people around the world know this truth. As young people, we already know that burning fossil fuels is causing climate change and that fossil fuels are responsible for 75% of greenhouse gas emissions. We are the ones that will have to face the climate chaos that we didn’t create. We need to make sure Ireland does not fall into the trap of the fossil fuel industry! Please sign your name and SHARE!

  • Should Mount Brandon be included in the Dingle National Park?
    The Owenmore Fishery has been sold from one private landlord too another. Its has never been in the hands of the Irish People. For the Dingle Peninsula to be recognised as the crown of the Kingdom then the people demand this government to buy what is truly ours. For too long the Dingle Peninsula has not got the recognition that it deserves that stops now. The pass and the river that drains it needs to be in the hands of the Irish people!

  • Local bus for Mullingar
    To help people get around. Kids getting to school, people who don't drive are less strained to get in and out of town. As well as cutting down on emissions as less people would drive. It would help people save money and hopefully create a better social culture of there is easy access to the town and parks.

  • Ballyhass School Bus
    The children of Ballyhass NS and the parish of Castlemagner deserve a bus and shouldn't be subjected to the stress and worry of a lottery year on year. This affects anyone that is outside the Department of Education's radius of 3 miles from the school. This is our fight this year but it might be yours in the future.
