The Sandymount and Merrion Residents Association (SAMRA) has welcomed the decision by Dublin City Council’s elected Councillors at their South East Area Committee meeting last week, to re-introduce the pedestrianisation and a traffic free area on the east side of Sandymount Green, writes Amy Rohu.

The pedestrianisation will be for three days, Friday – Sunday inclusive, per week between Easter and Halloween.

The decision follows a successful trial last year which was introduced following direct representation made by the voluntary SAMRA Committee to Dublin City Council.

Speaking about the announcement, Chairperson of SAMRA David Turner said: “We are delighted to be working closely with Dublin City Council and elected Councillors on this initiative which in its current form addresses the varying views expressed by members of the community.

We look forward to continuing to work with Dublin City Council and Councillors on implementing the many ideas that members of the community have proposed which will preserve and enhance the historic integrity of the village, the unique beach area which is a UNESCO designated Biosphere and the Poolbeg Peninsula, and increase their accessibility and amenity for the city”.
