Local Councillors Welcome new Mosque development in Lucan Co Dublin

Local Councillors Welcome new Mosque development in Lucan Co Dublin
proposed new mosque development at balgaddy in Lucan County Dublin
Local Councillors Madeleine Johansson (people before profit) and Paul Gogarty (Independent) have welcomed a new Mosque development in the Balgaddy area of Lucan as a welcome addition to the area.
 
The proposed development by South Dublin Maktab ltd (SD19A/0008) will consist of a three storey Islamic centre incorporating Mosque , 2 Classrooms , Library , Bookstore , 2 Apartments , Health centre and Restaurant on a one acre site on the lucan newlands road Balgaddy , South County Dublin . 
 
Councillor 
Gogarty welcomed the development as "a much needed amenity building" and said he would "find it a useful location for holding public meetings" . Mr Gogarty said there is a large islamic community in lucan and south dublin , that he regularly attended events in the existing mosque which he found to be "quite cramped" . 

Councillor Madeleine Johansson of people before profit said she welcomed this development  in particular , that it would "enhance the local community and provide much needed facilities for the muslim community" 

Local Parish Priest Fr John Laizer from the Church of Divine Mercy said it was "a fine development" .... "I believe this is a fine development not only for the islamic community but also for the greater community in the area , they are welcome to use our church car park at any time they need overflow capacity" said Fr Laizer

Michael O'Brien , CEO of the South Dublin Football League described the development as "exciting"  , Mr O'Brien said the development would "greatly enhance the area" and the football league would support it in every way possible . ... "T
he news that the muslim community are engaging in providing facilities for their youth and community is very exciting and will greatly enhance the area . we will make our facilities and car park available to them whenever the need arisis and continue to support them in every way possible"

A number of objections were lodged against the proposed development including a petition signed by over 200 local residents . 

An Objection from The Balgaddy Working Together Community group included a petition of more than 200 signatures from Local Residents opposed to the development . 
 
The objection cited local concerns regarding traffic and parking congestion , loss of mature trees , visual impact on the area , noise pollution from call to prayer , overshadowing of properties , lack of sports facilites within the development for locals and limited public transport to and from area. The residents also expressed concerns about the availability of the mosque facilities to the local community such as the Childcare Centre , School , Library, Health centre and offices which they argue are for those of the Islamic faith. In a seperate objection one resident wrote they would have to consider moving out of the area due to traffic congestion .

The planning application is currently the subject of two third party appeals and is before An Bord Pleanála with a decision expected on the matter around  23rd June . Any member of the public can make a Submission to An Bord Pleanala (within 4 weeks from the date the last Appeal is lodged) , the cost is 50 euro . (more information on this is available here - http://www.pleanala.ie/appeals/observation_guide.pdf )

would have been nice if the council had bought the site and built a decent community centre for the local people .
^
the councils have plenty of cash now with all the development contributions they are taking in . Ideally , this site in Lucan would have made a great asset to the local young people as community centre or something . a missed opportunity
^
crazy decision , lucan is already suffering from massive congestion issues , two hundred people signed a petition against this , does their voice not matter any more . so much corruption in the planning system in Ireland .
^
you'd wonder where the Funding is coming from for all these mosques . Cant help but wonder if this was a christian centre would Gogarty and Johansson be so keen to lend their support . There is a lot of self loathing among Irish people . I just hope we dont end up with the same problems they have in the UK with radical islam.
^
Looks like we are in trouble. Every few miles congregations of people diametrically opposed to our beliefs, values, ethnicity and way of life as a free Christian people. Coupled with the islamic invasion of footsoldiers coming to Europe, breaking down the Greek border, this is very worrying indeed.
It is time to bring back our army aged men, to deploy our army here, and mass deport the deployed army aged foreign men, we cannot have islamic soldiers stationed all over our country, in control of our ports.
^
Fionnuala,you or I can only look to where previous funding came from.
Disclosure in a transparent society...hide it equals = CORRUPTION

doorstep,Soros,Islam,UN, EU,NGO,FAR LEFT,MARXIST/COMMUNIST
