‘’I have made three submissions to the Boundary Committee on Local Electoral areas and number of councillors. I am interested to hear what people’s ideas and thoughts are on this issue , I encourage people to engage in this process upto 19th February , this is your chance to have your say , I would be concerned at any attempts to divide Clondalkin into different Electoral areas’’

  • I would ask that Clondalkin made up of areas of  North-Clondalkin , Bawnogue , Cherrywood , Green park , Clondalkin Village , Woodford etc. are all kept together in any redrawing of any new constituency and no attempt is made to Divide these areas as part of Any new constituency as not to isolate any part of the Clondalkin .
  • The area of Saggart/Brittas needs to be included as the Clondalkin area, the Clondalkin Area map needs to reflect the constituency of ‘’Dublin Mid-West’’ to allow for a more joined public representation model.
  • The Balgaddy / Foxdene area needs to be included as Lucan – Palmerstown area unless the area is changed to Clondalkin , The area address is Lucan but the Electoral area is Clondalkin this has caused a huge confusion for residents in who represents them.

The Committees now invite submissions
Submissions may be sent by e-mail to: boundarycommittee@housing.gov.ie, or by post to:

Local Electoral Area Boundary Committees 2017,
Room 1.67,

To arrive no later than Monday 19 February 2018 at 5pm.

Very Glad that so far 2 Independents , 1 Sinn Fein , 1 People  before profit . 1 Workers Party , 1 Fine Gael , I Fianna Fail candidate have agreed to uphold a voluntary poster ban in Clondalkin village, We also passed my motion on “This committee agrees to formally congratulate Clondalkin Tidy Towns on their second Endeavour Award for most improved in Dublin County (following success in 2013) and that they are written to expressing our gratitude for their excellent efforts and work in the area.” (A letter will now be issued from the Mayor’s Office to the Clondalkin Tidy Towns Group which will include an invite to the Clondalkin Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony which is provisonally scheduled this year for Wednesday 8th December 2015 at 5pm. A special ceremony will be arranged at the event to formally congratulate the Clondalkin Tidy Towns Group on their recent achievements.) and I believe by passing  my motion “That this area committee calls on each candidate for the upcoming general to respect the existing Voluntary Poster Ban in Clondalkin Village.” we are reaffirming and supporting the excellent work done by Clondalkin Tidy Towns.

Cllr Timmons says ‘’ Some people in Balgaddy face into another Christmas of un-acceptable living conditions, the damp , the structural issues and the overcrowded living conditions are making day to day life very difficult for a number of families living in the area. I have seen a stairs that is extremely dangerous , a lady with no water after 6 in evening , brothers and sisters sharing a bedroom , people having to sleep on mattresses , Broken letter boxes and doors. The anti-social behaviours of some people are making life a misery for many people living in Balgaddy. I intend doing up my own report on the area which I will present to SDCC at the next area meeting. These condition cannot be continued to be accepted. The people of Balgaddy need , want and deserve better. SDCC must step upto the mark and if the resources are not available within SDCC than counsellors must be told and they can campaign to TDs for the funds. I have today asked that the Balgaddy Housing issues must be kept as a headed item on the Clondalkin Area Committee agenda until all the issues are resolved to a satisfactory level. I have also asked that SDCC supply the area committee with the SDCC response to the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg’’

Cllr Francis Timmons to run as Independent in Dublin Mid-West in next General Election

Cllr Timmons says ‘’I have decided to run as an independent for Dublin Mid-West in the next General election. I feel there has been a huge lack of representation for this area for a number of years, the people deserve better. Many people I speak to are not seeing any recovery , some struggle to pay rent or mortgage and many struggle to put food on their table. Dublin Mid-West wants and deserves better. As a local counsellor I am raising many issues locally but as a TD I can try to effect change, we need a Left Government , we need a government that won’t leave us with more broken promises. I won’t be running promising the sun moon and stars but I will promise Openness , Honesty and transparency. I will also promise commitment , dedication and accountability. The next election is about choices and do we trust those that have let the state down since the foundation of the state? Or are we willing to look at new possibilities? Do we want the wealth shared ? do we want an end to poverty? And an end to Homelessness? Do we want real jobs and an honest day’s pay for an honest day’s work? I for my part will not be joining any party or grouping in my campaign I will be running as a total Independent I don’t have the huge resources to put posters on every lamp post but I do have the Loyalty and commitment for the Dublin Mid-West area. I want to hear what’s important to you? Contact 087 286 9315 or email ftimmons@cllrs.sdublincoco.ie . This is our chance and this is our time – We can make it a time of change.
