The Dublin Airport Stakeholders Forum

Thursday, October 18, 2012

The Dublin Airport Stakeholders Forum aims to provide an effective forum for the discussion of all matters concerning the development and operation of Dublin airport, which have an impact on users, customers of the airport and on people living and working in the surrounding communities.

The value of such a forum is highlighted by the fact that that Dublin Airport is home to one fifth of Fingal’s total employment with over 120 cross-sectoral enterprise operations including Aviation, Logistics, Catering, Hotels and Services. Airlines and handling agents alone account for about half of the 12,000 jobs operating at the Airport.

As the largest centre of economic activity in the country, and a key employer in Fingal the operation of the airport is bound to give rise to difficulties and conflicts of interest. As a newly elected member of the forum I am providing links to some recent reports on:

New Extension at Mary Mother of Hope National School in 2013

Friday, October 5, 2012

The Department of Education have agreed to bring the construction for the new extension at Mary Mother of Hope National School, Littlepace Dublin 15 forward to 2013. The delivery of this project will see additional school places, with pupils benefitting from modern energy efficient buildings and improved learning environments.

The new extension will comprise:

· - Building the three storey tower, incorporating 6 Special
Educational Needs (SEN) rooms, toilets and shower facilities, to be attached to the main building.

· - Provision of Ceilings in each classroom of the main building

· - Remediation of sound-proofing in the main school building

· - Developing of play facilities in the adjacent site, to include
an All-Weather pitch, which will be managed by Castaheany Community Centre.

This announcement further underpins the government's commitment to
educational resources to meet the demand for school places.

Last year the Department of Sport made funding available for the all-weather pitch but this had to be postponed in favour of the extension. While the funding has since expired I am pleased to say the at the Fingal County Council have undertaken to to support the construction of the planned all-weather pitch and to apply to the Minister for Sport, Leo Varadkar to reinstate the funding required
