the cosgrave apartment development was approved by SDCC and appealed to an bord pleanala on 11 March by local residents . its important to point out the site is situated right next to an Architectural conservation Area zone (ACA), there is no way a six storey block should have been granted planning permission here.

likewise , the kelland homes development next to it should never have gotten planning permission . it destroyed the village feel of clondalkin village

it was sold to people on the basis that there would be a 'senior citizen's centre' in one of the retail units . Guess what . Never happened , instead people got a tanning booth and gambling arcade

^
the planning system needs to be changed . planning officers have too much power in their hands . local councillors need to be involved in the planning process and in the Decisions being reached because they are elected by the people , the planning officers are not elected .
^
the greedy property developer is Back . you'd think we'd learn from past mistakes but NO . we are determined to do it all over again .

Greed , Greed and more greed and where will it end , another property bubble followed by a collapse of the economy
^
people in clondalkin should Boycott the Sheldon hotel . if they dont respect us why should we respect them .

think about it , why would you give someone your business who doesn't even respect you or the place you live .

I know clondalkin and its a very old village , probably one of the oldest in the county and these people want to make money by destroying its character .

Boycott them , no respect for us , No respect for them
^
i pass through clondalkin regularly and the traffic around this area is a joke , its gridlock , i dont know who is planning all this stuff but its gone beyond a joke now at this stage .
^
horrific . it looks terrible apart from everything else . feel sorry for the people in those houses beside it .
^
these guys see clondalkin as a soft touch , didn't they own the Jensen at one time and then solid it off for direct provision

de valera is spot on . Connolly was a very proud irishman and member of the gaelic league . He disagreed with many socialists on many issues . for example , he was totally opposed to bringing sexual matters into the realm of socialism . in his writings he frequently refers to "the irish race" which displays his fondness for nationhood and country . the new left wing teach people to hate country and nationhood . Connolly was not like that . Read his writings and you'll see .

i wouldn't like to see sport go down the st pauli / bohs fc road where they've become political in nature . whether your on the left or right , thats for your own personal time , sport is for everyone ,to bring everyone together regardless of political views . This is why political organisations whoever they are should not be allowed to get a foothold on it .

Whether thats racist or not only Roderic O'Gorman can answer but it certainly is discrimination against irish homeless someone only has to arrive at dublin airport and make an asylum application, their application doesn't even have to be approved and they will stil

MRCI is a political lobby group . racism is one of their campaigns . leitrim are therefore facilitating a political campaign by contracting with the organisation and promoting its campaign on their jersey

if your a leitrim fan , ask yourself this , when was the last time you saw a racist incident anywhere in leitrim . I live in a populated area in dublin with many different nationalities and I've NEVER ever seen one racist incident in all my time . Its a Non issue . These organisations are just using it as a way to control public discourse (and get funding) and make people afraid to question anything to with migration on the basis that they'll be considered racist
