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. […]

Letter to the Editor: Contribution of Tom Johnson

The Editor, Letters Page, The Examiner,   Dear Editor,   Gerard Howlin ( Opinion 3oth March) rightly praises the early leaders of this State for cementing our Parliamentary Institutions. Yet, once again in the narrative of our country’s history, the name of the one person who, more than many, ensured that the new Dail Eireann […]

Letter to the Editor – Decentralisation & Devolution

The Editor, Letters Page, The Irish Times,   Dear Editor,   Tomas M Creamer ( letters 19th March) refers critically to the presence of the Head Quarters of the Civil Service and our decision making Institutions in Dublin. I agree – it is why I enthusiastically support Decentralisation. Devolution being another necessity as well. When […]

Letters to the Editor: Local government reform

The Editor, Letters Page, The Irish Times. Dear Editor, It was interesting to read the report ( March 17th) on the new exhibition on the construction and destruction of The Custom House and of the Local Government staff who were dismissed for participating in the Rising. I suppose there would be no room big enough, […]

Letter to the Editor: Local Government property transactions

Published in The Irish Independent 9th April 2015. Dear Editor, The Irish independent and Paul Melia are to be congratulated on the continued and informed focus on Local Government as evidenced by the article on Council owned property ( 8th April). However it should be noted that, in one of the huge number of oddities […]
