Playground for Crumlin
We the undersigned call on Dublin City Council to prioritise a playground for Pearse Park Crumlin.
Edel James is putting pressure on Dublin City Council to provide a playground for children in the area, and is calling on local residents to assist her.
For years, Crumlin residents have been calling on the Council to provide a playground in Pearse Park, to no avail.
In recent years, Walkinstown and Terenure have been prioritised, with Crumlin being over-looked. However, I have learned from officials in the Council that Crumlin will be next on the list, once funding becomes available, but to ensure Crumlin doesn’t slip down the list again the residents need to exert some pressure on the Council and make their feelings known.
In order to keep the momentum going, I have begun a petition, which I intend to hand into Dublin City Council to demonstrate just how strongly residents feel about this issue. I am calling on the people of Crumlin to row in behind me and sign my petition. There is a huge population of young children in Crumlin and surrounding areas and a playground would enhance the community immensely.
