DALKEY TIDY TOWNS ANNUAL REPORT 2015

  Dillon’s Park Restoration: This has involved the total removal of bushes and undergrowth to the seaward side including the stripping back of granite boulders to reveal views that had gradually been lost over decades. Additional cutting back at the top level has created picnic spaces. This work was done by the DTT group with the help of up to thirty members of the IT Company, Sales Force, on two separate occasions. They worked as volunteers promoted by An Taisce’s Sea Coast Clearance Scheme.
  
The panoramic views are stunning and the park has now become a new place for residents and visitors to enjoy.
Sorrento Park: A commemorative 1916 stone plaque has been erected at the highest point of Sorrento Park. This
plaque was designed and purchased by DTT on behalf of the people of Dalkey. An unveiling ceremony took place on
Easter Monday morning. The access and a large area have been cleaned by DTT in anticipation of the construction of a viewing platform in the future.

  Ulverton Steps: The shrub beds have been pruned and cleaned up. The debris was
removed by DLRCC.
   Bulloch Harbour: Meetings are ongoing with the Dublin Port Co., and other stake holders i.e. DTT, residents, boat owners, anglers and those having an income/livelihood from the harbour. There is intense interest in the future of Western Marine following its recent sale. A committee has been formed to pursue these matters. The Dublin Port
Company is prepared to fund the upkeep of the harbour. They will also fund the repairs. DTT awaits a full report on the condition and costs of repairing the pier which urgently requires major maintenance work. The Harbour “portaloo” is proving inadequate due to irregular emptying. Discussions on this matter are ongoing with DLRCC.
  Graffiti: Our intense Graffiti removal programme of the last two years is at last showing a huge improvement; reoccurrence has been greatly reduced. Monthly reports are submitted to An Garda Síochána and DLRCC.
  Barnhill Road and Avenue: This junction is in the progress of being enhanced.
  Litter Patrols: The summer schedule for the litter patrols operate three times per week during the summer months. Volunteers meet at Writers Corner at 10.30 every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. On Thursday some members go to Dillon’s/Sorrento Park.
  DTT: are involved in tending to planted areas at Squareabout (5), Kilbegnet, SuperValu car park (4), Ormeau Drive (2) and Dillon’s Park.
  Volunteers: DTT needs help with the flower beds, litter patrols, and weed control on roads and footpaths, including the cutting back of overgrown hedges adjacent to footpaths.
  Undertakings are required from residents who park their cars on public roads outside their houses to move to other locations to facilitate the cleaning of the road as it is impossible for council mechanical road sweepers to remove litter at these locations. Owners should pick up where this occurs. We would urge all residents to look after their neighbourhood by removing litter, cutting grass verges and overhanging branches and removing weeds at the junction of walls and pavements.
  Other projects: include painting walls and lamp posts. DTT expects to build on the results from last year’s competitions, the Tidy Towns Competition and the Tidy Districts Competition and is looking forward to another successful year with the help of the community.

We have formed a group of like minded persons to combat
this Graffiti menace & to pinpoint the vandals.
So that they can be prosecuted & their parents fined for the cost of removing the eyesores on private property & the general environment
.
This can run into big money.
Individuals with damaged property can also sue
the parents of juveniles
