|I will be presenting the Honourary Freedom of the City of Dublin to Brian O'Driscoll and Fr. Peter McVerry in 2014. Brian is one of Ireland's greatest ever rugby players and Fr. Peter has campaigned for 40 years for Dublin's young homeless people.|
Brian and Peter are from different generations but they are both inspirational leaders. I am delighted they have agreed to accept this great honour and I know that all Dubliners will be both proud of, and find inspiration into the future from, these two remarkable men. They are and will continue to be great ambassadors for Dublin.
|Have your say in whether Dublin should have a Directly Elected Mayor. |
A public consultation process ran from Monday 16th September to Saturday 12th October. Many Thanks to everyone who made a submission, filled in the on-line survey or attended a public workshop. All submissions received are being collated at present and a report will be brought to Council meetings in all four Local Authorities. Following these meetings, we hope to be able to make a submission to the Minister for the Environment, Phil Hogan before the end of the year on whether Dubliners should be given a chance to vote on whether they want to have a Directly Elected Mayor for Dublin.
|When I commenced my term as Lord Mayor in late June, I established a Task Force to tackle the problem of vacant lands in the city centre. We have made a submission to government to enable us to impose a levy on such lands.|
