Green Party exclusion zone motion rejected by Lord Mayor
At a meeting of Dublin City Council on Monday evening, Councillors Patrick Costello, Ciarán Cuffe and Claire Byrne of the Green Party put forward an emergency motion to establish exclusion zones around healthcare facilities.
The proposed bye-law, which banned “affixing bills, posters or others notices onto any part of the healthcare facility and distributing or displaying leaflets, pamphlets, or other documentation”, set a radius of 500m for the buffer zones.
The motion was rejected by the Lord Mayor of Dublin, who ruled the motion as “out of order”.
