Posted 5 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 9 months 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 11 months 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!

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!!

Posted 1 year ago, 21 Dec 2020 by Cathal Mc Carthy Profile Cathal Mc Carthy

We call on minister Eamon Ryan who has the contracts on his desk above in Dublin waiting to be signed off on , There has been millions of euros already spent on the first phase of this road and the people of Moyross and surrounding areas are awaiting the minister to sign these contracts , Nearly 13 years we are waiting for this road to be finished but somehow it is always put on the long finger. Tom daly of the MRA and Ray O'Halloran were at many a meeting about this road through the years , We are calling on Mister Ryan as a community to do the right thing by everybody and get this road finished as it is in everybody's best interest. Regards , Tom Daly

In the middle of an uncertain world I think everyone would agree that families all over limerick needed something to bring that christmas cheer , We are so proud to say that our community could come together to create something so beautiful in memory of a little boy that was so full of life and brought light and joy to everyone he met Brooklyn Colbert.. We thought Brookyln was the perfect inspiration for this project , We have lost so many of our young people and times can get so tough for everyone facing there own battles it has been a hard year for us all , But the most important thing to remember is BE KIND and BELIEVE! To Wayne Colbert and Sonya Aylmer Brookylns parents thank you for allowing us to honour your amazing little boy in the way he deserved it was a priviledge. With signs from the sky and rainbows this event was always going to be spectacular , even though for a moment the weather went against us everybody braved that and delievered the best they could. Although the event went great , It was very sad to see that certain media outlets and TD's were not present at the event , all we have to say is you missed out on a great show , Going into 2021 maybe yer focus can be put on breaking the reputation you all have given the Northside over the years, It's time to break the stigma that you all have had a part in creating against our community. The isolation we have faced has done nothing but bring us closer together so thank you for teaching us that all we need is our own. BIG shoutout to Limerick Now for giving us the time we deserved and covering our event!! On an end note we really hope that everybody has a magical christmas and a new year full of blessings as long as we have eachother we have everything we need to remember that!! We would like to extend a special thanks to every single company who sponsored us with this event we could not have done it without you!

The worst type of discrimination is when it comes from YOUR OWN!

Posted 1 year ago, 14 Sep 2020 by Cathal Mc Carthy Profile Cathal Mc Carthy

I find myself saddened and disappointed to be sitting here writing this article in regards to allegations made against our hardworking , talented and dedicated football club Moyross UTD. As I mentioned in the title the worst type of discrimination is when it comes from your own, A man who is running our own community center who's intentions should be to better our facilities , and our community for our youths and the people of Moyross, and to provide a safe environment for everyone who is using the resources the community center are responsible for. Many issues have been reported to Mr. Flannery on numerous occasions about the mistreatment of the soccer pitch that our thriving soccer team calls home. Attached are many pictures to prove how bad these problems have escalated over a number of months between drug use, littering, anti-social behavior , consistent drinking, and ILLEGAL DUMPING which Mr. Flannery authorized himself , when approached by Philip Power (chairperson of Moyross UTD) he aggressively pointed out that they are his pitches and he will dump what he likes. Time and time again he has point blank dismissed all of the complaints he has been receiving from Philip and the lads on the team over a long period of time. We have news for Mr. Flannery it is not YOUR land the funding you are receiving from regeneration to keep these spaces of land in a good state are being WASTED on god knows what else and you are not fulfilling your role and promises as a community leader , I will remind this man again you work for OUR community centre. As if this wasn't bad enough Mr. Flannery then went on to take the character of some of our players making comments about how they were engaging in criminal activity that took place the other night in Moyross but quickly tried to retract and cover his remarks. How dare someone of his position act in such a manner! It will not be forgotten by anyone in this community and your actions have shown numerous times you are not one of our own, You are not out for the well being of our community and people and more importantly you only show respect to those who can do something for you Mr. Flannery. I am disgusted that this is what it takes to make you do your job, It won't be good enough until one of our children are hurt you might be willing to take that chance but we are not! In our opinion as a community it would be more in your line to resign from your position and let someone who cares about our peoples welfare to take over and help bring Moyross forward rather than two steps back!! This statement was wrote by Tom Daly (Chairperson of the MRA)
