Fair play Liamo.

Yeah, was down at the Juvenile mentors meeting in Na fianna a couple of weeks ago. Logistical nightmare is putting it lightly trying to beg and borrow pitches all over the place for games and training.


#265

There will be no need for any more Juvenile mentors meetings if this goes ahead … :sleepy::sleepy::sleepy:

As far as i know they did have a societal element to their remit, but their way around it was to allow a private company handle the sale of certain tracts of land, including the Spawell site, and the private vendor was obliged to take the highest price offered and could not take any potential social uses into account as that wasn’t part of the remit as they were solely a selling agent.


#267

No @spanner - over time they moved from individual to portfolio sales as they found them more expedient. But the original remit never changed - so societal considerations / social capital were never a factor.

Now that’s how you out in an objection. Well done to the members of NF who put that togeather, hopefully the fight they’re putting up will have a positive effect on the club.


#270

impressive stuff. what’s the latest on this?


#271

Only seeing the objection document now. Fair play to all involved, it could become the template for similar objection in the future.

Excellent work.

Noel rock deserves all the credit apparently. That is according to the mans latest pamphlet, giving himself praise . The bellend.


#273

A part of methinks that the only reason the plan went for Na Fianna was so Noel Rock could successfully get it overturned. I’m that cynical


#274

Is Rock stuck between Na Fianna and a hard place?


#275

I heard an alternate route has been proposed which goes through Vins and they have no problem with it.


#276

Na Fianna and Home Farm and local community were perfectly entitled to resist this,

People should perhaps read Project 2040 or just the executive summary. It is recipe for turning Dublin into low wage Paris Banlieu, Except, like Paris, most of them won’t be working.

The days of leafy Mohbi Road are numbered.

Yer digging a big hole there.

Ah, Ballymun Glasnevin North isn’t that bad.
