Dear Residents, As you know know Malachy Quinn changed his vote on the Proposed Development @ the Thu 11th Meeting, having previously given us his written support. In fairness to Cllr. Quinn, he is at least trying to make some amends for leaving us down. Below is an email he sent to us the following day that we wanted to share with you and we will keep you posted of further developments.

Subject: Local Area Meeting


In relation to the vote on the proposed development of Social Housing Units on the Darcystown Rd, Balrothery.

I took the opportunity to identify other sites in the County which would back onto houses on 3 sides, I identified the Hartstown Playground which was built on an identical site to the proposed Darcystown Rd Site. I consulted with the Residents Association in regards to the implications from developing a site like this for a Green Space or Playground. I was informed that the situation now is that this area is prone to antisocial behaviour on a nightly basis. I am concerned that the Darcystown Site will also attract the same problems.

At yesterday’s local area meeting, an emergency motion was put forward, supported by myself & the entire Councillors present that Fingal would work closely with the residents of Balrothery to address the many issues of concern. A special  Deputation Meeting is to be organised to facilitate the Balrothery Community to meet with Council officials & Cllrs.

In relation to Rosepark Estate, there is an Activity Fund of up to €3000 available over 2 years for any works or up keeping of the Estate by a Tidy Towns Committee in the Estate.
