CLG Na Fianna Statement re MetroLink – Tuesday 19 June 2018
Following conclusion of the MetroLink Public Consultation process, CLG Na Fianna have engaged in dialogue with Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII). We understand from these conversations that TII are considering a number of possible solutions that may not require the use of Na Fianna’s grounds as a tunnel boring site.
This information was shared by TII with a range of Public Representatives today and is now in the public domain.
While we welcome this potential development, and we are particularly pleased to note that some of the concerns of our Community appear to have been recognised, we await confirmation and further details from TII.
We understand that revised options may continue to have a very serious impact on our Community. In the absence of clarity on the matter, we would caution at this stage against any speculation regarding possible outcomes until alternative proposals have been publicly advised, and their implications have been confirmed. Once again CLG Na Fianna reaffirms our support of the MetroLink project and we look forward to continuing to engage fully with TII in an ongoing process as we, together with our neighbours Scoil Mobhi, Scoil Chaitriona and Home Farm FC seek a solution that will be acceptable to our Community.
Cormac Ó Donnchú, Cathaoirleach, CLG Na Fianna.
