Well silly ole me decided to go to Chadwicks in Sallynoggin yesterday....big mistake....stuck in a traffic jam for twenty minutes. One side of the roadway outside Woodies is dug up...services for the new Lidl and there must have been thirty fellows in yellow jackets hanging around but no one managing the one way traffic which was chaotic...went to DPL instead...after the half hour wait in traffic....forgotten just how good DPL is.

No, it's further down closer to the Deerhunter location. All the perimeter fencing is down atm and you can see the new roadway.

Thanks Ger. I had thought it was going to be the old Deerhunter entrance but that wouldn't have been practical.

Re. Lidl...anyone hear of the opening day? Looks like they're taking in stock now.

It occurred to me that this view mustn't have been exposed like this for a long long time because before the Deerhunter this was factories wasn't it, and then the row of Cottages that were demolished must have been there since the 50's? Is there something planned for this open area now?

There is planning permission for a nursing home and medical centre but when building would start on those I don't know. With the ground leveled off and tidied up, it suggests a delay.

What about the site at the Workmen's club on Rochestown Ave.? I heard they were building houses there, but it was just leveled and left; been that way for a few months now.

Its interesting how quickly and effectively Mr Lidl could build his new Sallynoggin shop .... when compared with the time taken to put up a few houses for the homeless. dontknow

Different kettle of fish....an investment as opposed to a lifelong heartache which few want to embrace. There are so many problems out there. Homelessness is being used to describe so many different problems. The cure is not the house but curing the problem. Who has ever got to the root of the problem? who knows how to cure it? Is it better education system, better family support, better jobs training, better drugs awareness programmes, better relationships councelling,better drink awareness, I could gather family and friends who have fallen through the cracks and a house will not sort them. It may get them out of the public eye but the irish society problem is ingrained!!

While I agree with your point regarding the myriad of problems attached to homelessness, there are genuine families out there who have had their home's taken off them by the banks that our Government backed. These families have no addictions or mental health issues, they are victims of the bankers greed. I see no reason why taxpayers money should not be 'invested' in the building of council houses as a priority and once that is done ... then the more difficult work can be focused on and lets not forget that not every homeless person wants a home. I walked down Grafton St the other day and was unable to take more than 5/6 steps without a collection bucket being shook in front of me..... no wonder our Government sit on their hands, they dont need to do anything as no real pressure is applied and theres so many charities out there doing the work for them. If all those connected to these collections were to protest outside Leinster House every day, then I reckon we would soon see real change .... but theres no money to be made in protesting eh ;)

Got down at last to visit the new Aldi in Sallynoggin. I'm not used to shopping at Aldi so found it a bit higgidly piggidy but it will be a boon to the local houses who now can just stroll over the road to get the shopping.

Big plus was meeting another member of this site in the car park wuu wuu our HID's were blue with the cold while we chatted :lol: :lol:

Not Sallynoggin but close enough.

I was going to make a joke recently about so many crap drivers in Killiney S/C car park bumping into this wall over the years that it eventually collapsed. What I really thought was that they were making a handy walkway through to the new Sallyglen Rd Bus Stop, BUT I was right the first time.
Soooo...so many crap drivers in Killiney S/C car park bumping into this wall over the years that it eventually collapsed. :lol:
Can't believe that they didn't leave a little gap for the bus stop because It's rebuilt now.

A small gap would make sense but - they are probably afraid of claims.

I don't know about that Sinead because if you follow the wall there's two gaps through further along, so why not make one here, makes perfect sense for the Bus Stop. :?:

Strum:

The other openings were probably part of the original planning permission. A new opening might well require such permission.

A gap for the bus stop would make sence but then they'd loose parking spaces also the other gaps are level with the footpath, a gap at the bustop probably would need steps which are not great for access and a big public liability issue not that we have a claims culture $$$ :(
