Show your support for the proposed new local sports facilities in the Development Plan
We need your urgent help which will take two minutes of your time – please read the below and follow the link to help ensure a fair chance for all South Inner City children to have local access to play sports and much needed sports facilities for Kevin’s Hurling & Camogie Club & other local sports clubs.
As you may know, we recently succeeded in having three amendments included in the Draft Dublin City Development Plan 2016-2022 (at Section 18.104.22.168 SDRA 12 St Teresa’s Gardens and Environs) providing for the inclusion of sports facilities within the redevelopment of St Teresa’s Gardens adequate enough to serve the needs of a number of local sports clubs and the local schools in the area.
This is an extremely important victory for the campaign. This change to the re-zoning of the site is included in the current draft of the Dublin City Development Plan 2016 - 2022, which is currently available for public consultation. Members of the public will be able to make submissions up to July 19th.
It is extremely important that as many public submissions as possible are made in support of this re-zoning, otherwise City Council Management may argue that there is little evidence of public support for the re-zoning or the Housing Department may argue that there is a higher priority for the provision of housing on this site over sports grounds.
Therefore, we are asking you to follow the steps outlined below in order to register your support for the re-zoning of St Teresa’s Gardens and the provision of sports grounds for the local community.
The proposed change to the rezoning is set out on page 78 of the following document: Link Here
FOR THE TEXT OF YOUR SUBMISSION we simply need you to write of your support for the amendments to the Draft Development Plan at 22.214.171.124 – something along the lines of:
- welcoming the proposal for much needed sports facilities within the South Inner City;
- recognising the need for full sized pitches for competitive sport in the area where there are absolutely none at present
- the retention of the existing sports lands at St Teresa’s Gardens and their future use for the benefit of all of the local community
- your positive support in general for sports facilities where none exist at present and all local schools and sports clubs are hugely deprived.
If you have any questions about this please feel free to call any of the committee members as outlined below or email Mary at firstname.lastname@example.org. With huge thanks for your support

THIS IS NOT A PROTEST!
This is a Massive Training Session (camogie, hurling, rugby, soccer, boxing) at the largest area for sport in the Liberties (a small tarmacadam area) to visually demonstrate the numbers of young people involved in sport and the need for sports fields in the Liberties and Dublin 8.
We’ll be walking from Dolphin Park to Vicar St at 10:45AM
We also have a dossier of key facts and information about the chronic lack of playing facilities inside the canal in the South Inner City. The need for sports facilities has to be acknowledged in the Dublin City Development Plan. Can you help by presenting this dossier to any of the Dublin City Councillors who will vote on the new development plan.
