Teen Space: A new Teenspace has been approved for Griffeen Valley Park! The physical and mental wellbeing of teenagers is greatly enhanced by access to the outdoors, social contact and physical activity. The programme will provide a variety of amenities at locations across the county, including multi-use game areas (MUGA), calisthenics, parkour, teqball football tables, speaker posts to play music and informal seating that can be used as places to meet and hang out.

Airport Hopper: The Airport Hopper bus stopping at Lucan and Liffey Valley intends to resume from mid-December, great news for holidaymakers and workers travelling to and from Dublin airport.

Guys and Dolls! Well done to the students at St Joseph’s on their production of 'Guys & Dolls', it was great to see the students back on stage and audiences back enjoying live performances again.

Esker Cemetery Columbarium Budget funding: Something I sought in the Council budget for next year was funding for a columbarium – or a wall to hold ashes - at Esker Cemetery. I was delighted when I saw that 150,000 euro had been included for this project. This is something I have sought since the local elections of 2019. I think the Council should also identify space for additional grave plots at this municipal cemetery.

Keeping our paths clear: Thanks to the SDCC crews who responded to my representations to remove low overhanging branches for pedestrians and cyclists on St Loman's Road, for cutting back overgrown hedging on the Lucan Road, especially for children walking to school, and for removing overgrowth and obstructions on Castle Road. We should be making it easy as possible for people to walk or cycle to school or work to ease congestion for us all. If there are other paths or cycle tracks you'd like to highlight, please get in touch!

Leaves: I have rolls of clear bags available for use by residents to collect leaves. If you would like a roll, please contact me.
