REPORT FROM JOINT POLICING COMMITTEE

Questions

Qu (1)

Submitted by:
Councillor Carly Bailey
Responsibility:
Director of Economic, Enterprise & Tourism Development

To ask the Chief Executive to give specific details as to how our South Dublin libraries will benefit from the €3million fund announced at the end of September for library upgrades. The announcement stated that there would be a pot of €4.1m and that the funding would be used to help provide safe meeting spaces, study pods and other upgrades to be carried out. I have been contacted by countless third level students as well as students and parents of students in post-primary, who are very anxious to ensure that they can access study rooms in their local libraries. Can the Chief Executive also make a statement in relation to the funding matching criteria imposed upon Local Authorities that forms part of the conditions of this funding.

Qu (2)

Submitted by:
Councillor Carly Bailey
Responsibility:
Director of Environment, Water & Climate Change

In light of the passing of my motion: That this Council ensures that all future contracts entered into with private contractors to carry out works on behalf of this local authority, will ensure that a clause will be included that states that glyphosate based products can no longer be used by them or the Local Authority, in relation to any work that is carried out on our behalf. Can the Chief Executive please outline how this will be implemented and timelines for that.

Qu (3)

Submitted by:
Councillor Carly Bailey
Responsibility:
Director of Land Use, Planning and Transportation

To ask the Chief Executive to confirm who has responsibility for the roads underneath the underpass system at the M50/Spawell? I was advised on a weekend that this was managed by the TII, with M50 Concession holding the contract. I contacted the out of hours service of the Council on a Sunday to report a huge amount of broken glass under one of the underpass pedestrian bridges, just before the path way that leads to the kissing gate at the Dodder Weir. I was informed it wasn't under the remit of SDCC nor was it clear on who to contact. M50 Concession did not appear to have an out of hours number that I could find. Who is responsible? Do they carry out work at weekends? Who is responsible if there were an accident? Who ensures that reports are looked after? I don't think this situation is at all satisfactory and would ask the Chief Executive to please consider at least ensuring that reports are passed on to the appropriate body to be handled. Another caller might not have bothered to keep trying to find who to call.

Mot (17)

Submitted by:
Councillor Patrick Pearse Holohan
Responsibility:
Director of Corporate Performance & Change Management

This Council calls on the Minister of Defence, the Chief of Staff & the Commander in Chief the President to promote and support the Irish Soldiers of A Company 35th Infantry Battalion and in recognition,and award 33 men 33 Distinguished Service Medals and 5 Military medals for gallantly recommended by the late Commandant Pat Quinlan. While serving in the Congo in 1961, under the UN flag, Commandant Quinlan and his battalion came under siege for 5 days while attempting to defend Jadotville and the peace in the small mining town. Segregated by a bridge they were cut off and 90 miles from HQ. The force in which Quinlan and his men fought against were led by Roger Faulques. Roger was hugely experienced in combat and his force heavily outnumbered and out gunned the 35th battalion. The Irish suffered no deaths and only a few wounded. Largely due to Commandant Pat Quinlan's insistence that the entire Company dig trenches. The men were then held in captivity afterwards for a month. Upon return home to Ireland they were not treated as heroes in fact many suffered shame. Internationally this feat has astounded Army's about how Quinlan returned them men who averaged age 18.5 home to their families alive. No doubt these men were nominated by Quinlan because they saved lives through brave and courageous actions - it would be just to honour his wishes of granting these decorations he listed and give closure to the 8 men still alive and the family's and memories of those who fought at Jadotville. In 2017, serving members were awarded Jadotville medals upon the then Taoiseach's recommendation. Although, this is a medal is to be cherished, it was not the MMG or distinguished service medal recommended by Pat Quinlan. At a time when our front-line services and forces are close to conscience. Recorrecting this history opens up and highlights a positive assurance towards these brave men and shows our current men and woman of service that we honour and respect them and we will always stand up for their good name and due merit if we feel it is at question with no time limit till closure is found. If passed, a letter from this Council will be drafted accordingly and dispatched forthwith to the above mentioned.
