78 The Orchard, Lucan

Covid 19 Information: I have created a Covid-19 Information Pack which is being updated every 48 house and available to download from my website

Fuel Allowance: The fuel allowance payment will be extended for an extra four weeks, from Friday 10th April until Friday 8th May. This extension will ensure those in receipt of this payment have one less thing to worry about and can remain safe and warm in their homes during the coronavirus outbreak.

Support During Covid-19: If you need help or assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me. A new Government initiative to support residents in Lucan has been established. It is being managed by the Council and you contact the helpline on 01 414 9043 for assistance with shopping or just a chat.

Thank you to everyone - Stay Safe, Stay at Home.

Prepaid commuter tickets extension and refunds: Following representations from commuters in Lucan, I have written to the National Transport Authority and the Minister for Transport asking that the validity of prepaid annual and monthly commuter tickets be extended or refunds be made available, given the restrictions on travel to work at the moment.

Fuel allowance extension: I was happy to see the extension of the fuel allowance season by four weeks, following lobbying by my Fianna Fail colleagues Willie O'Dea and Mary Butler. This is of crucial importance to older people who are currently cocooning to protect themselves from COVID-19. Contact me if I can help with this.

Railings on R136: I have been informed by the Council, following my representations, that the areas of fencing requiring repair between the R136 and Larkfield and Droim na Coille will be addressed in the near future.


Cllr. Ed O Brien, Fianna Fail

Constituency Office, 8A The Village Centre.

Fianna Fail Group Leader on South Dublin County Council

Covid 19 Outbreak: This week have moved to a new stage in the effort to combat the Covid 19 pandemic. Everyone is being asked to stay at home except for certain specific exceptions. My office continues to offer assistance to residents in relation to all matters but in particular we are assisting with all Covid 19 related social welfare payments and applications.

Demesne Wall: I have again been in contact with SDCC in relation to the repair of the wall opposite the Maxol garage. I have received a commitment that they will work with the Ambassador in order to repair and reinstate the wall and footpath as soon as is possible.

Please stay safe
