We understand that Dublin City Council has also acquired a unit in Phibsborough Shopping Centre and the plan will be put on public display there. Dublin City Council will have to carry out some work to adapt the unit before the display goes on public view. We will let you now as soon as we have a date.

Information Sessions will be held in Croke Park Conference Centre in the Ash Suite on Saturday, 29th March and Saturday the 5th April 2008 between the hours of 10.30 a.m. and 1.00 p.m.
Dublin City Council plans to run buses from Phibsborough to Croke Park.

Submissions or observations should be addressed to Tom Vaughan, Planning Department, Civic Offices, Wood Quay, Dublin 8, or by email to before 4.30p.m. on Tuesday 22nd April 2008.

Submissions can be as long or as short as you wish. You may just wish to focus on one issue or you may wish to focus on a number of issues. It can be as valuable to indicate your support for aspects of the plan as it is to indicate your concern on other aspects. Submissions can be hand-written or typed and sent by post, by hand or by email.
