The Government's housing policy is good for developers but it's failing the people.

The Social Democrats have clear and achievable policies that can solve the housings crisis, including a rent freeze and building public housing.

But good ideas need political power to be implemented.

You can help by joining me and thousands of others at the Raise the Roof protest on Wednesday 3rd October, 1pm at Leinster House.

I'm delighted that Paddy Monahan was selected last night to contest the local elections for the Social Democrats in the Donaghmede/ Raheny/ Clongriffin area.

I met Paddy first during the Marriage Equality referendum campaign. He spearheaded the campaign for the removal of the baptism barrier so that children of all faiths and none can access their local state funded schools. Paddy will be a passionate and energetic Dublin City Councillor if he is elected next May and I look forward to campaigning with him.

Consultation period needs to be extended! Many people only becoming aware of drastic changes proposed to many routes, including 31 & 32 routes! Many elderly people, carers and those with mobility issues will be adversely affected!

You can email your concerns also to [email protected]

NB 31 routes have radical changes.

This is the new train timetable for Clongriffin that comes into effect on Monday. While the overall number of trains increases considerably at the station with a Dart every 20 minutes, there is considerable concern in Clongriffin about the loss of commuter trains at peak times when there is strong passenger demand at the station. ...

It is concerning Cian. I have complained to Irish Rail and they insist that there is one extra train before 9am - this train is at 08.54. This is just crazy considering the volumes of people and also the building in the area. The removal of 1 train before 8am is unacceptable. 10 years I’m using this service it is not unread to expect some improvements at this stage. I acknowledge the increase by 9 trains during the day but it does not help the majority that travel at rush hour

I totally agree Aine, less trains before 8am is madness!! Each dart is packed as it is!! I'm not looking forward to next Monday. I hope this can be revised, especially with all the new apartments + houses in the area. We should be encouraged to use public transport. I thought this was part of the Local area plan (LAP) set out by DCC

The removal of the 747 dart and the change of the 759 commuter to a 757 dart makes it extremely difficult for those of us starting work in the city at 830. It increases our overall travel time and limits our options. The 736 dart is going to be absolutely packed beyond capacity with that being peoples single option now.

Powerful Monto walking tour led by Terry Fagan @Monto22 - he does a great service telling first hand his story of what the state and Christian brothers did to him and his family - highlight of @CultureNight for me #culturenight

Terry Fagan leading a fascinating walking tour of the Monto. You can walk these streets all your life but never really appreciate the social history of the city #culturenight

#SocDems Spokesperson on Energy and Climate @OCallaghanCian on @drivetimerte says industry needs to stop producing plastic packaging that's not recyclable. Supermarkets should stop serving us up fruit & veg in plastic that you have to unwrap when you get home #endplasticpollution
