Carton Residents under Siege- Reilly

The Residents of Carton estate are being besieged by a plague of rats as rubbish dumping levels reach a new high. Since the privatisation of the bins by Dublin City Council dumping levels across Ballymun has increased dramatically but especially here in Carton estate as there is a piece of Land in front of Carton Terrace which dips in the middle and rubbish can be concealed within. Local Representative Noeleen Reilly said’ Sinn Féin has made representation on a number of occasions to Dublin city Council on behalf of the residents, This piece of land needs to cleared of rubbish, flattened out and landscaped similar to surrounding areas. This would make is more difficult for the culprits to continue dumping. There are many families living in the area with young children who play outside and could pick up any disease from these rodents. It is simply unsafe and cannot continue. We are calling on Dublin City Council to take action immediately; it shouldn’t be the norm for our children to grow up surrounded by rats and rubbish. Surely we have moved on a great deal from the 19th Century.’

Route 83

Dublin Bus is pleased to announce changes to Route 83, benefiting
the residents of Tolka Estate and Glasnevin. These changes follow
consultation in the community with key stakeholder groups.
Key changes are as follows:
• Route 83 will operate via Tolka Estate at hourly intervals, every day.
• Morning peak times will be adjusted to better meet the needs of peak
time commuters.
• On Sundays Route 83 will terminate at Charlestown Shopping Centre, no
longer serving Harristown.
These changes will better meet the needs of the community and will ensure
that Route 83 operates in an efficient and effective manner.
Please note there is no change to any other areas served by Route 83.
Please see Route 83 timetable overleaf.
These changes are part of Network Direct, a redesign of bus services in
Dublin City to provide a more direct, high frequency and punctual service.
