Dublin City Council plans to chop down 300 trees in Merrion Square Park
The latest news from Dublin City Council is that they plan to cut down 300 mature trees in order to improve Merrion Square park. Apparently it is all in the name of giving it a facelift!
From the Independent:
The park is extremely popular with residents and is often visited by tourists.
It does all seem a bit radical and presumably expensive. Surely there are more pressing causes given the state of funds nationally these days?
If this is something that is likely to irk you then you should probably contact the council directly since they are likely to make decisions on this quite soon. Separately you could fill out their Parks Questionnaire which is running from Sept to 15th Dec but don't expect the input of that to feed into the input of the above.
