Some interesting stuff this week. Who is the playing pitch for on the Oldcourt Road, Capami?  Link between Presbytery and Iona Centre for Knocklyon.  IT Tallaght plans further expansion. The old Our Lady’s Nuns house beside the school been converted to apartments.   Change in plans by Broadcrest on the Scholarstown Road (surprise, surprise!!).  Another big housing development in Lucan.  Sorting out the Housing Crisis is so slow.  How come we take so long to put up Modular Houses and they seem to cost as much as regular houses,something amiss.
