Occassional News – April 2021

HX Grow Project : Continues to bestow beautiful bountiful benefits ! Last month 5 heritage apple trees were planted inside the main gate of Mount Argus Park. Today a row of similar heritage apple trees was planted on Priory Green. These are  the first steps in restoring the mixed fruit orchards that adorned the area in the 18th and 19th centuries.

4.     Planning : The main developments since the last update are :

·       Shamrock Villas : The good news is that the Property Registration Authority advises that an Order dated 16-4-2021 has been issued to Harold Properties Limited refusing an application seeking registration as full owner with an absolute title of the most Southerly section of Shamrock Villas. This opens the way for Dublin City Council to move to establish their control over the full extent of Shamrock Villas in the public interest.

The sad & bad news is that Dublin City Council’s Director of Services continues to contend that the public right of way on this section of Shamrock Villas was validly extinguished at some stage recently and that the erection of gates at Mountain View Avenue is exempted development.

Our elected reps are working with the Harold’s Cross Village Community Council to protect pedestrian access through the full length of Shamrock Villas. This is vitally important in the context of the Bus Connects proposal to install bus gates at McGowan’s and Siopa Linn, remove the footpath along the railings at the South end of the Park, the opening of the new 1,600 pupil schools at the Stadium and the huge number of new apartments in the immediate vicinity.

Tree Cutting in Mt. Argus Park and Road

Please see below and update from Dublin City Parks:

“Dublin City Parks have appointed a tree surgeon to carry out essential tree removals, 4 number, in Mt. Argus Park and Road to happen over the next couple of weeks due to Health and Safety concerns. This work is being carried out following inspection by the Dublin City Council Tree Officer who has found that the trees due for removal have serious fungal disease, cavities, decay and require urgent removal. One tree will be removed completely and three trees will be retained as monoliths – the practice whereby a tree is reduced in height and without branches and left to naturally decay in order to provide habitat for wildlife- birds, bats and insects will live, shelter and feed in and off the timber.

This work will be completed in the next 2-3 weeks.”

Thank you,

Dublin City Council

Occasional News from Harold’s Cross

Rosary Hall : The fantastic news is that the DCC’s Budget Committee has approved in principal the request by our local Councillors, for full funding for the building remedial works for Rosary Hall.  This funding will allow the building to be brought back into use for both the Youth and Football Club and Harold’s Cross Village Community Council and will enable many of the initiatives for roll out under the Age Friendly Village Plan.

This is a mammoth testimony to the persistence of our local councillors Mary Freehill, Anne Feeney, Pat Dunne, Deirdre Conroy, Tara Deacy and Carolyn Moore for constantly putting forward the motions, sending the emails and making the phone calls. We are very appreciative of all the work that they do representing the neighbourhood in Harold’s Cross.  The village has benefitted hugely from all of their efforts. Thank you !

Rosary Hall and Park have been central to the social fabric of Harold’s Cross for generations. In his book “Harold’s Cross”, local historian Joe Curtis writes:

“The clergy bought Westfield Park at auction in 1954, an early Georgian two-storey house of three bays, with big gardens attached. A hall, with corrugated asbestos cement roof, was added on the west side, and the original house was used as the changing rooms. The gardens were laid out as football pitches. The altar boys party was held in the hall around Christmas time, when a box of chocolates was presented to “Altar Boy of the Year”. In the mid 1990’s, most of the land was sold off for town houses, now called Kenilworth Manor, but the rear of the site was retained for one football pitch and a new Community Centre, with a youth club on the ground floor, and a hall/meeting room at first floor level.

Many concerts, mostly by the Harold’s Cross Musical Society, were held in the old hall over the years,.”

Indeed for decades it was the “Copper Face Jacks” of Harold’s Cross. Dances & hops were held there and despite the supervision of the “man in the round collar” many’s the match (figuratively & literally) was ignited in The Rosary through the decades !

In 2019 the Dublin Diocese transferred ownership of the grounds and building to Dublin City Council for a nominal sum in order to ensure that the vital role that The Rosary provides will continue.

The Rosary deserves a proper, dedicated historic record when this round of works is completed. Click : HERE for the official Harold’s Cross YFC Club History.

Occasional News – Christmas Eve 2020

  1. The HXGrow Project held it’s first ever Creative Christmas Foliage Foraging event on Saturday 5th December. The idea is that people would “forage” seasonable foliage from their gardens or attics and leave them at their front gates for others to collect. The collectables included dried flowers, holly, gilded pinecones, pampas grass, berried ivy, wreath frames, oasis and much more. A map with 17 locations assisted foragers of all ages to locate the goodies. Local artists Niki Collier and Liz Nilsson put a tutorial video on YouTube to assist novices in creating seasonal decorations. The outcome was a spectacular success with amazing door wreaths, table centres and Christmas decorations appearing as if from thin-air !

You can see the amazing results for yourself HERE.

How many of these masterpieces you can spot in the neighbourhood ?

Niki & Liz’s video is HERE.

2.     Planning : The main developments since the last update are :

a.     St Clare’s : An Bord Pleanála has decided to hold an oral hearing into Marlet’s application to add another 28 apartments and extra floors to the 220 already granted. A date has not been decided as yet.

b.     Hall of Lights : An Bord Pleanála has postponed a decision until 28th Jan 2021.

c.     The Green Fox : DCC has granted temporary permission for an outdoor dining area complete with a fully retractable motorized pergola for a period of five years subject to retaining the 1.8m footpath at the lamppost.

d.     261 Harold’s Cross Road : Permission refused for retention of extensive works that are incongruous and harmful to its character and that of the streetscape and would set a harmful precedent for similar proposals.

3.     A New Year Resolution : Would you like to develop your creative writing in the new year? Are you keen to explore your local environment and its heritage? A six week course, working online with Harold’s Cross Writer-in-Residence Amanda Bell begins in February 2021.

  1. BusConnects: The National Transport Authority has commenced the final round of public consultations regarding proposals for the Bus Corridors before they make their submissions to An Bord Pleanála on 2021. These proposals cover significant re-engineering for roads and traffic including four new bus gates in the Harold’s Cross region, one-way systems and re-direction of private vehicles, compulsory purchase orders for some front gardens on Harold’s Cross Road, off-lane cycleways – some on private property, tree removals & replanting etc. All the details are accessible on the web. Click : HERE Some of the more relevant maps are on display in the window of the former Harold’s Bazaar beside CRAFT restaurant.

The more significant proposals for Harold’s Cross Village include:

·       Closing Harold’s Cross Road on the West side of the Park (Siopa Linn to McGowans & vv) to general traffic. Access to any location on that side of the Park (Mount Argus Road, Mount Jerome, Gandon Close, Siopa Linn etc) – will have to use the road at the South end of the Park (Main gate, Opes Wealth, Shamrock Villas, McGowans). The footpath on the Park side of that road will be lost and a portion of the apron in front of the Park gate will also go to enable access to & from Harold’s Cross Road for the displaced traffic.

·       A portion of the front gardens of most of the houses opposite the Hospice, from St Clare’s to Mount Drummond will be taken.

·       The five-way junction at Kenilworth (Spar etc.) will be significantly re-engineered – including a diversion via Kenilworth Square and Rathgar Avenue for traffic coming from Rathmines.

·       Access to and from Lower Kimmage Road, including Mount Argus Park & church, will have to use any of the side roads as there will be bus-gates at McGowans and at Ravensdale Park (near the KCR and Poddle Park). Access for residents of & visitors to these side roads (Kenilworth Park, Westfield, Priory) will be via Clareville Road.

The expiry date for submissions is Wednesday 16th December 2020.

This NCT “Bus Corridors” project deals with the physical road works. It is separate from and independent of the “Bus Networks” project which deals with bus routes, frequencies, timetables etc. More on the Bus Networks projects in future emails.

  1. Planning:
    1. Kenilworth Motors: An Bord Pleanála has refused permission for 201 build-to-rent, shared-living, strategic housing development on up to five storeys. Click:HERE
  1. Saint Clares Convent: The developershave applied to An Bord Pleanála for an additional 28 apartments bringing the total number to 248. The case is due to be decided by December 21st 2020. Click:HERE
  1. Mount Argus Old Monastery: DCC has granted permission for an additional 21 units at the Homeless Family Hub. The Mount Argus & Church Park Residents Association has appealed the decision to An Bord Pleanála on a number of grounds.

The developers – Mount Argus Monastery Ventures Limited – have also appealed a number of conditions including a condition requiring the unauthorised gate at Church Park Avenue to be permanently closed and the fencing reinstated and made good. Dublin City Council has commenced court proceedings and following an initial hearing on October 20th the case has been re-scheduled to a date in February 2021. The ABP appeal is due to be decided by March 5th 2021. Click: HERE

  1. Old Orphanage beside Centra (199-201a HCR) : DCC has appointed Respond (an Approved Housing Body) to manage the construction of 7 one bed and 5 two bed apartments as per permission granted in 2019. These are to be completed in Q4/21. It is not clear if the retail unit included in the permission is included.
  1. Mount Argus Mill Apartments: An Enforcement Notice requiring Patrizia AG to remove the recently installed pedestrian gates and railings at Mount Argus Road, at the lay-by along Lower Kimmage Road and the bollards at the pedestrian bridge has not been complied with. Patrizia AG have told us that their architects are about to lodge a planning application for  retentionof the additional gates and railings. If this happens we will have an opportunity to make submissions pointing out that the original grant of planning permission emphasised the community gain arising from pedestrian permeability through & across the development. This was scant compensation for the loss to the local community of the perfectly functioning Saint Charles Centre that had a performance space with retractable seating, wheelchair access, toilets, a kitchen, non-skid basketball court regularly used by Special Olympian athletes and meeting rooms. It was the centre for the Mount Argus Summer Project for school children. Dublin City Council directly gained €2.5m on development levies, €1.6m for disposal of a public road servicing the old mill and a block of 13 apartments.
  1. Classic Cinema & Rosie O’Grady Sites: There are many on-going building control issues with the developers showing scant regard for neighbours, parking in private lanes, truck & diggers movements at anti-social hours and dangerously damaging the footpath to name but a few of the issues that have been the subject of complaints to DCC and the Gardaí.
