Cllr Emmet Doyle: Ballyarnett Country Park Remedial Works Delivered

Aontú Cllr for Derry has welcomed the finalising of remedial works in Ballyarnett Country Park following his motion at Council and work alongside Council officers.

Cllr Doyle:
“Ballyarnett Country Park is much loved throughout the outer North area and I have been engaging with park users, residents and Council in recent months arising from the need to address long term structural and aesthetic issues we identified.

I’m delighted that since then, Council has spent £20,000 on fixing potholes, addressing car parking and repairing a wall at Cornshell Fields. A further £200k of works have been identified including repair to stairways, drainage and footpaths.

In the coming weeks, the watercourse in the park will be cleared of debris adding to the parks appeal which I am grateful to officers for, and an expert has been appointed to review flooding and traffic as part of the Masterplan process.

I will continue to work to see this beautiful asset brought up to the standard my constituents expect and to work on securing the remaining funding.”

The Irish political system is radically broken

In Ireland the vast majority of elected representatives put a finger in the air to check which way the political wind is blowing. They have one eye on their leaders – seeking brownie points – and another eye keeping their seat safe. If elected reps shut up and do as they’re told, they are promoted; if they stand up for what they believe in, they are demoted. No wonder we have the political class we have. No wonder one point one billion euro is being buried in a hole under the National Children’s Hospital and that Stormont is in stalemate.

Throughout Ireland, many people are now afraid to say what they feel, many are afraid to respectfully engage on a range of different topics. Many feel there is a new censorship and a new political correctness in Ireland, that opposition to the establishment is being deleted.

Respectful opposition is not the enemy. Respectful opposition is a critical element of a functional democracy. Aontú will have the backbone to stand up, without fear, for you.
