The Orchard, Lucan

Lucan Disability Group I was delighted to announce that Lucan Disability Group is being awarded 75,725 euro. They are receiving this grant under tranche 1 of the Covid-19 Stability Fund for community and voluntary organisations. It is a wonderful organisation that aims to facilitate and promote independent living for people with disabilities around Lucan, Palmerstown and Clondalkin.

Covid Cases I asked the Minister for more detailed information on Covid 19 cases, these have now been released by electoral division. Lucan Total is 563. See my Facebook or for more details.

Phase 3 reopening I would like to wish all businesses in Lucan the very best of luck as they open their doors after Covid 19 restrictions are eased. I would urge everyone to follow all guidelines and most of all enjoy getting back to some sort of normality.

Mayor of South Dublin County Council

South Dublin County Council AGM: I was delighted to be elected Mayor of South Dublin County Council last Friday at the Council's AGM. I am grateful to all colleagues who supported me and look forward to pushing a number of agendas for Lucan in my capacity as Mayor. It will be an unusual year due to the restrictions in place due to Covid 19, but I look forward to meeting many groups and individuals regardless, to try to assist them in their local endeavours. If there is any project which I can be of assistance with, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Mayor: I was proud to be able to vote for my friend and Fianna Fail colleague, Cllr. Ed O'Brien as the new Mayor of South Dublin County last week. Ed will be an excellent first citizen of our county and follows Cllr Vicki Casserly who has put in a great year as Mayor.

Earlsfort: Following my representations, South Dublin County Council have confirmed that they will examine the boundary wall between Earlsfort and Castle Road, to ensure that the integrity of the wall has not been compromised.

Congratulations: Comhghairdeas to the pupils of Divine Mercy SNS who wrote letters to people over 70 staying at home to stay safe from COVID, which were distributed by SDCC.
