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 […]



Shane Ross establishing another forum

The Editor, Letters Page, The Irish Times.     Dear Editor, The report (New forum will offer input into trasnport policy 11th July) is truly alarming. At present there are at least 44 different statutory bodies, charged to one degree or another, with transport in Dublin, never mind the rest of the Country. The last […]



Letter to the Editor: National Anthems and All That

The Editor, Letters Page, The Irish Times       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 […]



Letter to the Editor: Department of Housing, Planning & Local Government

The Editor, Letters Page, The Irish Times.     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 […]



Letter to the Editor: Data Protection & Housing

The Editor, Letters Page, The Irish Times.   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. […]
