Abbeywood - Trees: Abbeywood estate is included on the tree maintenance programme 2023 – 2025, however I have received some requests with regards to specific asks at certain locations within Abbeywood. As a result, the council have this week confirmed to me that they will replant the trees that were removed some years ago at the entrance to the Court.

Adamstown - Mural Update: Unfortunately, the request for a mural on the Adamstown Link Road bridge (previously agreed in principle to a motion I tabled) is looking increasingly unlikely due to cost. However, submissions are being invited to decide on an alternative artistic project at

La Fheile Padraig Sona Duit! Like everyone I'm looking forward to attending the Lucan Village St Patrick's Day festivities with family and friends. Well done to the organisers and all the participants - Happy St Patrick's Day!

Pedestrian Lights: I highlighted the concerns raised by many regarding switching on the new pedestrian lights with council management at this week's council meeting. They will bring the matter to the attention of the ESB, I will keep pursuing this until they connect the power.

Age Friendly Parking Spaces: I have been asked to raise the matter of installing 'age friendly' parking spaces in the Lucan area. This is something that has been introduced into other areas, they provide additional security and safety to those more vulnerable in our community.

Register to Vote: I initiated the 'register to vote' events held in Adamstown over the years. It would be arranged to have local gardai present to sign/stamp the relevant forms. I intend to facilitate this again; I will keep all posted on this.

Wishing everyone a Happy, Safe Enjoyable St. Patrick's Day!
