magnetometry survey @ Seagrange Green

A strange Contraption was spotted today on Seagrange Green by many Baldoyle locals. The Contraption, resembling a mix between Molly Malone’s famous cart and the Mars Rover, was in fact a high tech piece of survey equipment.

This was a part of a magnetometry survey undertaken by the Grassroots Archaeology Project which is a homegrown, community based initiative
which seeks to combine professional expertise and local support to unearth the story of a forgotten monument.

Brickfield / Seagrange Park South zoning victory

Statement (by Brian Greene Socialist Party) on Brickfield Rezoning vote 15/03/2010

“Urgent action required or community will be forced to intervene.”
“Monday’s Development Plan vote saw 22 councillors (out of 22 present) reject the rezoning on Brickfield at the South end of Seagrange. Following such resounding rejection any future rezoning of this land must be a non starter. ” says Brian Greene Public Rep. Socialist Party Dublin North East.The same land faced two votes during the creation of the 2005-2011 Development Plan and also a plan for a variation in 2008. Public pressure defeated these moves. The residents of Sutton Park & Baldoyle will not tolerate erosion of open spaces nor will they tolerate planned dereliction of the site or the disused council depot.

During the past few weeks the general perception has developed that noting will be happening anywhere in the county because of lack of funds in these new economic times. Councillors and Officials that harbour such ideas must stand aside and let creative communities apply community uses to community land if they lack the creativity and vision to move this impasse along.

“For over thirty years the area surrounding Brickfied has been let fall into further disrepair. Enough is enough. If this area is further neglected by its owners or the council the community will be left with no choice but to take action. The only power that has saved Seagrange Park zoning has beenPeople Power. This vote sends the strongest message to council, cash strapped or not, urgent action to remedy the ugliness of the area is required. Failure to act is no longer an option in Seagrange Park.” according to Mr. Greene

politics in the classroom

On Monday 22 February, St. Mary’s Secondary School, Baldoyle, welcomed two local politicians to the school: Mr. Terence Flanagan, TD and Senator Martin Brady.

 

The Politicians had visited the school as part of the educational project by the Houses of the Oireachtas to educate young people about politics and its relevance to their lives. Many issues were discussed from voting to citizenship to democracy to improving the health service to wastage in electronic voting. Transport also featured regarding cost over runs and indifferent research/planning on the Port Tunnel and the M50.

 

There were also questions on the recession and the Government response to it. On a local level, students asked questions on the provision of sporting and recreational facilities in Baldoyle.

 

Despite being well tested by the Second Years in a question and answer session, Terence and Martin thoroughly enjoyed their visit even though it over ran by about 30 minutes.

 

The visit was organized by the CSPE teacher, Mr. Fennell. Many thanks to Mr. Terence Flanagan, TD and Senator Martin Brady for giving such valuable time to the students. The students were delighted to be given the opportunity to questions two public representatives at one time.
