• 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.

  • 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.

  • Save Patrician Villas
    Less trees, more traffic congestion outside and more pedestrian traffic inside will mean Patrician Villas will become a less safe, less green, more polluted, noisier and unhealthier place to live. The image of Patrician Villas as a 'residential' area and its 'sense of community' will be severely compromised and the quality of life of its residents will be drastically altered. The NTA proposals are outlined below. (1) One main proposal is the relocation of the Stillorgan Park Road bus stop approximately 120m (2 min walk) from its current location. To facilitate this, the following additional modifications are proposed: • Construction of an ‘Island-style’ bus stop requiring land take, and the removal of trees, • Construction of a Toucan crossing in front of the relocated bus stop; i.e. the building of an additional pedestrian crossing ‘on’ the dual carriageway in the same area as the existing pedestrian crossing ‘under’ the dual carriageway. • Creating a pedestrian access point by removing part of the wall between Patrician Villas recreational space and the N11, and the removal of trees. • Construction of a concrete staircase and winding ramp requiring the sacrifice of a recreational space, and the removal of trees. (2) Another proposal is the construction of a 1.8m footpath the length of the border between Patrician Villas and the N11 dual carriageway. To facilitate this, 2 other modifications are proposed - • Extension of the underpass further into the neighbourhood for a footpath above, • Land take of at least 2m the length of Patrician Villas and the removal of trees. The proposed infrastructure changes are "minor" in terms of impact - i.e. moving a bus stop only 120 meters (a 2 mins walk) and creating a footpath along an area that has no entrances and that will abruptly come to an end at the junction. Yet the sacrifices Patrician Villas and Grove are expected to make and the danger and affective health implications to residents are "major". Real change happens when everyday people like you and I come together and stand up for what we believe in. Together we can reach lots of people and help create change around this important issue. Please note, your email address is required but will not be visible to anyone in this petition campaign. Only names and constituencies are retrievable for the purpose of presenting evidence of support to Authorities. Thank you for signing and again, please share this petition link with others - the more people showing support by way of their signature - the better!!

  • Direct bus service from Newbridge to Maynooth University
    Newbridge is the 2nd largest population center in the county, and it does not even have a direct public bus service from Newbridge to Maynooth University. It’s a big let down to students, making it hard for them to attend classes or get back home. There are private services, and indirect services, but they are expensive and often takes long time with delays, causing students to miss their classes. The importance of this campaign is to make it easier for students to access their education, so that they won’t have to pay a fortune in private services, or have to wake up at really early hours in the morning for indirect services

  • 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.

  • 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.
