Casino Apartments

The decision of NAMA to sell 69 apartments in the Casino complex to an investment fund, for future rental, is a total reversal of an agreement reached with existing Casino residents that the apartments would be sold individually. It also a major blow to MCF’s policy of promoting the supply of suitably located step down accommodation in Malahide, to facilitate older residents move from larger properties to more manageable accommodation, located close to the amenities they require.

NAMA’s decision will

  • Not increase housing supply in the state
  • Condemn many older residents of Malahide to living in badly insulated houses, which they cannot now afford to heat or maintain, thus increasing the probability of them being hospitalised
  • Reduce the availability of older houses for sale in Malahide. These would have appealed to younger families who need additional space, but cannot afford the cost of new houses now being built in Malahide, but would have the time and energy to upgrade older properties and make them more energy efficient

The inability of the Minister for Housing to influence NAMA to make decisions consistent with Government policies, as is evident from the attached correspondence, is hugely disappointing

Caves Marsh

Would a floating pedestrian/cycling boardwalk 50 metres into the estuary be feasible?
Could it protect Caves Marsh wildlife; provide a safe route to school and help to connect Swords and Malahide?
This is one of the options we’ve asked the council to explore.

The Malahide Community Forum has identified Seabury to Pope John Paul II primary school as one of our four priority routes for Schoolchildren to have safe access to School. We did this as we feel that Barrack Bridge is a pinch point on the way to School for walking due to the footpath’s width, and we think it is unsafe for cycling. Our views were backed up by a survey of 500 residents, where 78% (& 90% of parents of school children) also believed it as dangerous. Please find below the following:

1 – Email sent to FCC

2 – Link to the 2007 Environmental Survey

3- A pamphlet created to get feedback from local residents

4- Feedback from Inbhir Ide Drive & Close
