I have objected to the proposed 4 storey apartment block at the Brady’s Pub site « Roderic O'Gorman – Dublin West Green Party

I have submitted an objection to Fingal County Council, calling on it to reject planning permission for a proposed 4 storey apartment on the site of Brady’s Pub, on the Old Navan Road beside Blanchardstown. The planning application proposes 41 two and three bed apartments. My main concern is that the proposed development is completely out of keeping with the two storey family homes in the estates that surround it. At its maximum height, the apartment block would be four stories high. This will completely overshadow the houses in the vicinity, blocking their light and removing their privacy. I also believe that this proposal represents a major overdevelopment of the Brady’s pub site. Under the current Development Plan, the zoning objective for this land is to “Provide for residential development and protect and improve residential amenity”. This proposal would severely impact on amenity for existing residents. I think it is unsuitable for this site. The developer should be looking to build family sized houses here instead.

CELTAR Adviser's insight:
Volunteers from Castleknock Dublin 15 in the Easter Rising 1916

It appears little known that at least 8 men from Castleknock participated in the Easter Rising
I have tracked several volunteers from Castkleknock who were went out in 1916, see names below.

Hopefully they are especially remembered today in Swords, focus there appears to be on "Fingallians" (what is that?!) who did not get to Dublin.
