Grammer,

Well done...you spurred me into action and I have e mailed all the Dún Laoghaire Councillors. We will see if they answer. They may have passed a bye law or a decree but, it would be interesting to have an explanation.

Good for you Rocker, I was told yesterday they were going to be preserved and moved to another area, funny though when I said my friend had seen them demolished on the Thursday night, and went down on Friday morning to double check what she had seen and found the remains of them dumped down near the park in absolute bits.............he had no reply..........Funny that. :?

I sent an e mail to all the Dún Laoghaire councillors and got three replies immediatly. I am assured that the cab shelters have been temporarily removed and will be rebuilt, refurbished and reinstalled.That sounds pretty positive.

Just received a response from his IPhone ,,,,Thank you for your email just to let you know these sheds will be replaced

Well it is a response I suppose ! Maybe he didn't like my reference to the official after hours demolition ! Or the reference to the shelters ending up like the facades of the Carlisle pier ! And me after giving kudos for the wor done around the old " Pav"
Ahh well such is life !

Funny that he thinks of them as "sheds"...my idea of a shed is a sort of a junk place/hidy hole for keeping bits and bobs...not something that needs preserving..we always called them cab shelters!

You could say politics had made me cynical and I'm only affected by Oz politics but see its the same chit the world over !

ear Tommy,

Further to your e-mail, re the above issue, apologies for the delay in responding, I was away last week.

They were removed the previous week without any prior consultation so I sent an e-mail to a number of Official's in the Council as I was unsure who was responsible.

I received the following responses from Owen Keegan, County Manager and the Communications Office:

"From: Keegan Owen [mailto:okeegan@DLRCOCO.IE]
Sent: 26 August 2013 09:35
To: Cllr C. Smyth
Cc: Austin Frank; Romano Roberto
Subject: FW: Victorian Sun Shelters.

Carrie,

The two remaining Victorian sun shelters have been removed to facilitate the widening of the pedestrian bridge at Eat Pier/Adelaide Street. Together with the shelter which was removed some time ago to facilitate the Phase 2 of the Metals project they are currently being fully refurbished and will be reinstated in pristine condition close to their original locations.

Regards

Owen P Keegan
County Manager"

"From: Communications Office [mailto:commsoffice@DLRCOCO.IE]
Sent: 26 August 2013 15:01
To: Cllr C. Smyth
Subject: Cab Shelters, Peoples Park

Dear Cathaoirleach,

With reference to your recent queries regarding the above, I wish to advise that, as part of the refurbishment of the Peoples Park, the Cab Shelters, which were situated opposite the East Pier, have been removed temporarily. They will be renovated, rebuilt and re-installed as the work progresses.

We have been informed by the Engineer in charge, Mr. Roberto Romano, that photographs were taken prior to removal.


Kind Regards

Comms Office"

Should you have a query on the above or any other issue please feel free to contact me.

Kind Regards
Carrie.

Subject: Victorian shelters

Greetings Carrie
I have a query for you
what is the current situation on the Victorian shelters that were removed from D/L seafront a couple of weeks ago??
are they being safely stored for their safe return to their old or new spot ???
or have they been dumped -seeing their removal was a kinda secret

regards

Tommy

I'd hang onto those emails Grammer, maybe for a few years anyway. I just think they will never be replaced I hope I'm wrong.
