Re: Carrs Mill Park Locked

The walkway was open today. I'm not sure if that is official or if it was left open unintentionally. I noticed a couple of tractors heading up that direction from the Beaverstown Road side. Repairs seem to have been made to the fencing with the missing piece of fence when you enter the walkway from ...

Re: Auto Locksmith required

I used these guys in Mulhuddart a couple of months back. We needed a spare key cut for my wife's Skoda Superb. They did a non-remote key for €80. That included coding to the car immobiliser. I dropped over to them, but they do have a van that provides a mobile service. https://autolockandhouse.com/

Re: Auto Locksmith required

What are you looking to get done - did you lock yourself out of the car or looking to get a key cut?

Re: Carrs Mill Park Locked

I tolk a walk up to the windmill from the Beaverstown side today and was greeted by this new addition. I'd doubt it's part of the remidial works FCC have requested. An example of what happens to an ameniety when it's left derelict. This would have been unlikley to happen if it was open to the public...

Re: Carrs Mill Park Locked

I had a look at Paul Mulville's poster on the fence to the entrance of the Rahillion walkway last night. Here's a summary: The walkway is under the control of the Rahillion developer and FCC are working with him to complete the handover. There are some remedial works to be done by the developer and ...

I believe ABP have granted permission for the Aldi on Turvey Avenue. Adrian Henchy posted it on Facebook.

Re: Carrs Mill Park Locked

Last we heard was that the Rahillion developer was looking to hand it over to Fingal. There were a few things that Fingal weren't happy with and asked the developer to address. There have been questions on the various Facebook groups from residents regarding a status and this doesn't appeared to hav...

Yes he is, although generally there on his own so doesn't always get to the phone. You're better off dropping up to him if you can.

Re: ‘New’ Traffic Lights Near Romayo’s

I agree, both going and coming from the train station yesterday traffic wsa stopped needlessly for a couple of mintues as only one person needed to cross the road. 2 minutes doesn't sound like much, but it means a significant tailback at peak times. Not sure who you would suggest this to. There is a...

Re: Supermarket On Turvey

People are entitled to object and I think many would agree that we need another supermarket. However, many will also agree that Turvey isn't a suitable location. People are entitled to object to planning permission, it's the system that needs looking at when it takes this long to process through ABP.

Re: Carrs Mill Park Locked

Looks as though it will be locked for some time yet. I thought it had been taken over by FCC already, but looks as though the builder of the Rahillion estate was still managing it. It's anyone's guess as to when this will be resolved.

Re: Carrs Mill Park Locked

Reported on other groups that FCC are spreading compost on the grass areas. This is due to last until Friday so would expect it to be open again on Saturday. Badly needed as the grass has really struggled to grow for some reason. There is a lot of heavy machinery entering and exiting the site via th...

Re: Development works in Donabate

This is the BP case for the Aldi site. It appears to be still open. It was due to be decided on 20/10/2022, but that hasn't happened or the site hasn't been updated to reflect any decision..

Besides the welcome competition, we could really do with another supermarket to alleviate the congestion in the SuperValu carpark at peak times.

Re: Development works in Donabate

I thought planning permission was valid for 5 years. If so, the planning permission for that site would have expired and will have to be applied for again.

Re: Noise at Top of Beaverstown Road

Spoke to a neighbour who identified the cause. It was related to the Virgin Media equipment housed in the steel unit close to the entrance to Beaverstown Golf Club. The neighbour called Virgin who came out the next day. It was a failed bearing in the air conditioning unit fan. That explains why it w...

Re: Noise at Top of Beaverstown Road

I'm pretty sure this was a house alarm. It went on for about 3 days. It would stop for a couple of hours and then start up again. It was barely noticeable during the day, but very at night.

Thankfully, it's stopped and hopefully whoever it was got it looked at by an installer.

Noise at Top of Beaverstown Road

Has anyone noticed the constant high pitched noise at the tope of Beaverstown Road? It stops for a few hours and then starts again. It has gone all through the night for the last few nights. It's driving us mad. I presume it's someone's house alarm?
