Letter to the Editor: Immigration

The Editor, Letters Page, The Irish Times, Dear Editor, Aine Ni Chonaill of Immigration Control ( letters 20th February) wrote when did any Political Party ask if the current and anticipated level of immigration was what the Irish People wanted. Well, in 1997, a certain Aine Ni Chonaill of Immigration Control contested the General Election […]



Letter to the Editor: Irish Women Political Leaders

The Editor, Letters Page The Irish Times Dear Editor, There has been some commentary recently about Mary Lou McDonald becoming only the third Female Leader of an Irish Political Party. While not taking from her noteworthy success it would appear that in the process a large number of important Irish Women Political Leaders have been […]



Letter to the Editor: Local authority housing provision

The Editor, Letters Page, The Irish Times. Dear Editor, Breda O’Brien is right. Now there’s a sentence I don’t write all the time. In her article on housing (20th January) she nailed a few home truths and spoke more sense than most commentators on the issue over the last year. However it may surprise many […]



Letter to the Editor: Dublin transport management

The Editor, Letters Page, The Irish Times, Dear Editor, The Editorial “Time to join up the thinking” on Public Transport – particularly in Dublin – was timely, valid but somewhat understated. At my last count there were 43 separate bodies all with some degree of responsibility for Dublin Traffic and Transport. The sensible and logical […]



Urban Land Institute Conference & City Council Chief Executive

The Editor, Letters Page, The Irish Times. Dear Editor, I think I was the only City Councillor present to hear the Dublin City Council Chief Executive speak at the recent Urban Land Institute Conference. Perhaps that is why I have not been one of those to respond negatively. I did not hear him propose “building […]



O Cualann Alliance

  The Editor, Letters Page, The Irish Times.   Dear Editor, I welcome Minister Eoghan Murphy’s support for the O Cualann Alliance approach to cooperative housing. The pity is that he didn’t inform his colleagues of that a few weeks earlier when along with Fianna Fáil, Sinn Fein and the Far left Parties, Fine Gael […]



Votes at 16

The Editor, Letters Page, The Irish Times.     Dear Editor, The Government is proposing to hold a Referendum to extend voting rights to those aged over 16. No such vote is required to extend voting rights to those same people for Local Elections. This would be a good way to involve young people directly […]



Housing Solutions

The Editor, Letters Page, The Irish Times.     Dear Editor, Within the next few weeks, work will start on building nineteen new social homes in the middle of the estate I live in in Donnybrook. This will be in addition to the nine affordable homes and the six additional social housing units that we […]



Not a national housing authority, please

The Editor, Letters Page, The Irish Times.   Dear Editor, Reports that the Government is considering establishing a National Housing Authority are deeply worrying. Does nobody get it ? The “national” bit is the problem. When Local Councils had the power, resources and staff to deliver Social Housing – they did. The crisis in Social […]



College Green & lack of planning

The Editor, Letters Page, The Irish Times, Dublin 2     Dear Editor, Ruraidh Conlon Kelly (letters 18th August) is of course right. A directly elected Mayor within a functioning Local Government system could deliver a better City Transport system and the College Green Plaza in a more efficient and timely fashion. Unfortunately a combination […]
