Like so many others, I have been really frustrated over the past few days as the temperatures have plummeted and our footpaths have become incredible dangerous and icy. Dublin City Council currently has a policy of only gritting the road carriageways when conditions are icy to make it safer to drive but they do not grit the footpaths. This leave the paths treacherous for all who use them. I have written to the city manager looking for an urgent change of policy.

Some trees were recently felled by DCC staff on West Road in East Wall. This is really disappointing to see but unfortunately needed to be done because of the condition of the trees. Below I have included the information I received from the Council about the trees. I am following up to ensure that a new greening plan is put in place ASAP for this area.

As an emergency measure, in response to extraordinary pressure on the international protection system and a lack of available accommodation for international protection applicants, the former ESB office building on East Wall Road has been converted into an accommodation centre. Some information below based on the briefing provided by the Department of Children, Equality, Disability, Integration and Youth (DCEDIY) may be of interest to the local community. The Department will be circulating an information leaflet to all residents in the coming week.
