Letter to the Editor: National Anthems and All That

Dear Editor,

 

Brian O’Connor’s article on playing the National anthem reminds me of the Dublin City Council Executive who, many years ago, objected to my motion that we should fly the Dublin colours  whenever Dublin reached at least the provincial finals, that “ it would be unfair to people from outside Dublin”.  Thankfully the colours are now flown and we can celebrate our common City and County sporting success. As someone opposed to narrow Nationalism but proud to be Irish I hope that we will continue to loudly sing our National anthem on what is a very special day for most Irish people at home and abroad.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Councillor Dermot Lacey

Dear Editor,

 

Your editorial (22nd August) suggests that the Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government would be better off concentrating on density rather than height issues. I disagree. The best thing that Department could do would be to stop interfering. It has done far too mch damage already.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Councillor Dermot Lacey

Letter to the Editor: Data Protection & Housing

Dear Editor,

 

Bon Frewen  (letters 17th August) rightly questions the role of the Data Protection Commissioner. The same Commissioner has recently blocked Councillors from exercising our supervisory role (not an allocation role) in relation to Housing in Dublin City Council. This does not serve citizens well. The same rules were used to refuse information re the electoral register from the 1960’s, ’70s and ’80’s . It is time for a little sense and a massive reduction in the nonsensical powers of that office holder.

 

Yours sincerely

 

Councillor Dermot Lacey
