From 20 years ago . . .
The 1997 Newsletter noted that residents in Wellington Road were unhappy with Disc Parking and commuters filling spaces.
It also welcomed the planting of a number of new trees in Herbert Park, and noted that the developers of the new Herbert Hotel were obliged to rebuild the People's Shelter at the north-east end of the park.
In 2002, ULSARA lamented the new planning regulations implemented on 11 March this year and warned that they would have a very negative effect on the work of the Association given their requirement that objections must be made within 5
weeks of the submission of a planning application and must be accompanied by a fee of €20. Furthermore, an appeal against a decision on a planning application cannot be made unless an objection was earlier made during the 5-week period after submission of the application.
A very successful AGM was held on 13th April 2016 at Litton Hall, Leeson Park. It was great to see so many new members and neighbours.
Jacqueline Kelleher, Project Leader of the Heritage Community Garden Donnybrook spoke passionately and eloquently about the benefits of community gardens.
Our last Newsletter for Spring 2017 was one of the most wide-ranging and comprehensive publications to date, with articles on topics from Electric Cars to Dodder Wildlife plus ULSARA's position on the proposed developments at Grand Parade and Appian Way. And on the 100th anniversary of the Bolshevik Revolution, we have a fascinating article about links between Dublin and the Bolsheviks and the role of people like William X O'Brien and Kathleen Lynn.
It's always interesting to see how the interests and issues occupying ULSARA have evolved - and remained constant - over the years.
