Boys National School, Brookstone Road.



over the past 10 months the abandoned council depot at Seagrange Park has become more derelict, has experience increasing fly tipping and has now been raided by Gardaí with dogs looking for drugs. The perimeter wall has been broken and security compromised. What is surprising is that this is a Fingal County Council facility that has been left unattended and unlocked for the majority of the time.

We are seeing serious planned dereliction by the council, creating a security risk and a health hazard and an eye sore. Use of depot compound was promised to local GAA club Dubh Ghall as far back as last summer but provision of the site to the club has not materialised. The depot is on land which I am told is leased by the council and sits on an area of land that is zoned open space / recreational adjoining the Brickfield land and Seagrange Park that is prone to flooding and forms part of the flood plain.

Previous plans by the council and developers to rezone the land for development of high rise have be set back by the action of the community, local residents associations and the assistance of the Socialist Party Councillors and local rep. Brian Greene.

Their running down of this facility and the failure to date to see it put to better community use (which would help secure it) asks serious question for the councils intent for this area.

The Socialist Party is continuing to working with local sports associations and residents to put maximum pressure on Council and local Councillors to see that this depot is properly maintained cleaned & secured and put to better community use in keeping with its zoning.

Government must be held accountable for blackmail clause

"The European train will be leaving the station on January 1, 2013 and the Irish people should be on board." So declared Taoiseach Enda Kenny in the Dail on Wednesday morning in response to a question of mine relating to the Referendum on the EU Fiscal Compact which the government has been obliged to call. The Taoiseach was speaking in Irish as it was ‘Lá na Gaeilge’, with Leaders’ Questions in Irish. However, the impression he was trying to convey was false in any language, which is that rejecting the Fiscal Compact would somehow mean not continuing as a member of the European Union or indeed as part of the Eurozone.

Minimum wage cut reversal sweetened by €400 million bonus for bosses!

With much fanfare, the government recently announced that it had got “permission” from their EU and IMF masters to reverse the cut in the minimum wage institued by the previous government. Fine Gael declared that the decision showed the government was “committed to protecting lower paid workers” while Labour TD Derek Nolan said it showed that “Labour's decision to enter government has made a real difference in people's lives”.
