Meeting discussing future plans for residents of Moyross (Pineview Gardens)

Posted 1 month ago, 03 Jul 2022 by Cathal Mc Carthy Profile Cathal Mc Carthy

As Moyross undergoes alot of changes to restore the community and be opened up to more opportunities with the building of many new homes 61 to be exact, Refurbishments for current tenants down the line and 99 new builds. Regardless of the bumpy start with these changes the Moyross Residence Alliance were pleased to be met personally by Fiona of Limerick County Council & Regeneration to explain what the future holds and what these new plans entail, Fiona had the curtesy to speak one to one with our chairperson Tommy Daly and in detail explained that although certain expectations couldn't be met , the outcome of 61 houses being retained was the best outcome & compromise between the council and current residents of Pineview as they had to meet in the middle and find common ground. We see this as a bright future for Moyross and feel that many opportunities will arise with the plans in place for the near future , This will also open alot of doors for employment for locals which is something extremely important for our youth. Our purpose as an alliance is to always represent our community the best way we can , Everything we do is voluntary and we don't gain anything except for helping our own, All our opinions posted on our website are our own & only our own we are aware that sometimes they may differ to others but all in all everyone's goal should be the same which is fighting for a better for our children , elderly and community here in Moyross. We'd like to thank Alec Morissey , Willie O'Dea , Philip Power , Jamie Daly & everyone else involved who have fought for this outcome.

Recent update on the holy garden.

Posted 8 months ago, 05 Dec 2021 by Cathal Mc Carthy Profile Cathal Mc Carthy

Hello everyone!! We apologise for not being as active on the website as we usually are , we were having some technical issues but all is up and running again.. We just wanted to do a follow up on our recent revamp of our garden in Delmege park , we have been working tirelessly with our volunteers to get the garden prim and proper in time for Christmas , It looks great if we do say so ourselves!! There had been trees that didn't grow properly since they were planted a year and a half ago so we uprooted them and put down new peat and grass seeds so it will prosper come January, We have redone our bathroom , Repainted all the statues and walls and sorted some lighting issues out of our own pockets it is very rewarding to see it looking so amazing . Its our favourite time of year once again so the magic helpers have decorated the garden in the most sparkling lights and displays in order to get ready for one of the biggest events in Limerick .. Christmas events limerick are running the annual magical DRIVE-THRU and it is nothing short of spectacular why not give the garden a look when your down around our area! We would also like to extend a thank you to our fellow businesses that have supported the garden throughout the year such as Roadbridge , D&J Glazing and J&T Tyres. Not only that but we would also like to thank Pat, Steve , Danny , Philip , Philip jnr , Dee , Lisa , Jonathan , Thomas & Jamie for their work with the MRA & Garden these last few months as they say it takes an army! We would like to take this oppurtunity to wish you all a very happy & peaceful christmas and a better new year!! Many thanks, Tommy Daly Chairperson of the MRA

PROGRESS ,What Progress?

Posted 1 year ago, 31 Jul 2021 by Cathal Mc Carthy Profile Cathal Mc Carthy

It's a sad state of affairs that the Moyross Residence Alliance had to tidy up the original holy garden that the council insisted on removing from the estate as they left it as a derelict site which poses a threat to the children playing nearby and was becoming rat infested. The only reason we agreed to relocate the garden with the council was because they told us we were standing in the way of building 2 houses in said space. It is disappointing 2 years down the road to see no progress made , A beautiful tribute ruined for nothing for them to leave it as a dump. It cost us the bones of 100,000 euro to build the original garden so to see it be left there to rot is upsetting , especially when we see now we were told false information on there intentions with the land. It happens to be an environmental issue for our avenue because it is unkept since the council have not kept there word to use their resources properly to look after said space. There are other issues that we aren't going to address at this time but enough is enough. It is not the MRA committees responsibility to keep this problem from happening, Limerick city council do the jobs you have promised this is not our burden to carry! Tommy Daly Chairperson of the MRA

MRA fights for houses & jobs for locals

Posted 1 year ago, 25 May 2021 by Cathal Mc Carthy Profile Cathal Mc Carthy

A delegation of the Moyross Residence Alliance was delighted to be apart of the unveiling of the new houses in Delmege Park. Tom Daly chairperson , James Daly vice chairperson were honored to witness the start of this project which could potentially help many people due to the ongoing housing crisis in Moyross. It was great to be able to discuss future plans and intentions for Moyross and surrounding areas. It was great to see Aoife Duke of Limerick County Council , Regeneration , And Roadbridge there to represent the agencies. We hope to see our locals getting some of these homes as overcrowding in quite a few houses in these areas is beginning to get too much for people and families. The construction team have nothing but positive plans going forward and talked us through the process of how the houses will be built we were highly impressed by Patrick , Patrick Jnr , and Michael and we are looking forward to what is coming in the near future!

Regenaration, WHAT REGENERATION?!

Posted 1 year ago, 08 Mar 2021 by Cathal Mc Carthy Profile Cathal Mc Carthy

As you can see on these photos attached the demolition of perfect houses here in Delmege park all those years ago. We went into city council and gave Kieran Lehane an injunction from our solicitors to try and stop this destruction in our square in Delmege Park, We handed the same to Brendan Kenny in which he turned his back on us just like the photos. They created false rumours that the people in the avenue wanted the houses knocked , Most people living in the square are homeowners and the MRA committee actually handed in a list of people who could have been housed in the homes they were so adamant to destroy. They started this atrocity at 4 in the morning with no regard for the people, elderly or children asleep in their beds when we tried to stop this insanity they phoned the guards on residents , One of our longterm residents Frank Ryan endured so much noise and tremors from the construction next door he spent alot of time in his garden. They cut the cable in house number 55 when the tenant in the house approached Kelly Demolition to ask if the cable would be fixed by a certain time he responded "f*ck off you are only a tenant* You can see this being done in one of the photos below. These bullyboy tactics were used all over Moyross, St. Marys Park , and Weston it saddens me to say they are still going strong today. In 2009 the community in Delmege were told there would be houses built , Again words with no actions nothing was done. Then the implantation plan came in which said it was to stay a green area and they wanted to knock the Holy Garden we had built that we were standing in the way of two houses being built in the space , Again more LIES!! It looks to me like the so called professionals are acting on impulse with no foundation or plans the outcome of there carelessness is communities left with gaps , dangerous sites and opening us up to be a dumping area , this does not help the reputation of our areas that we have for years been trying to shake. We are human , We have voices , We will be heard!! These photos we have released are only part of what is coming , We have more letters , photos and material condemning the councils actions towards so called regeneration areas , People have complained numerous times about different issues with no avail , The reality of all this is we are NOT disposable as that is how we have been treated all these years. Together we stood tall for the people of Moyross all these years , We represent a STRONG RESPECTED community in Moyross , This will not be ending here and we will not be blindsided and disgraced anymore by those being paid to better us!!
