Reopen Stepaside Garda Station Petition

Stepaside Garda Station was closed in March 2013, in a bid to reduce costs. However, over the last 20 months, this decision has cost the people of Stepaside and the surrounding areas much more than it has saved. Its closure has led to increased fear and isolation for residents in the area. According to recent Garda figures, it has become the second most burgled area in the country. People affected wish to send a clear message to the Government that the reopening of the Garda Station is not only a need, but a demand, of the local community. We the undersigned call for the Minister for Justice to reopen Stepaside Garda Station as a matter of urgency. Please contact Deputy Shane Ross at (Enable Javascript to see the email address) or Councillor Kevin Daly at (Enable Javascript to see the email address) if you would like to join the local committee or for more information.

The Coalition is exposed as gambling on tax windfalls

Is the Coalition cooking the books? I asked the woman from the Revenue mischievously.

Little people brace for yet another hit as banks off hook

Remember the Banking Inquiry? The big game changer that was set to sort out Irish bankers once and for all. It was destined to uproot the diseased banking culture. Ireland’s little people would never again be bullied. A general election was even postponed to accommodate it.

Cook arrives bearing gifts, but his visit stirs echoes

‘Young people of Ireland, I love you,” declared Pope John Paul to the youth of Ireland back in 1979 during a mass at Galway race course. Ireland’s youth reciprocated. They loved their pontiff.

Burglar Ben rubs his hands as business is set to boom

Ben the Burglar sat back to watch RTE’s Six One news last Monday evening. He was feeling a bit depressed. All day he had been hearing that Minister for Justice Frances FitzGerald was launching a package to put a stop to his gallop.

Ragtag fantasy politburo still has every right to dream

I have a confession to make. I have spent decades in politics. I got a bad degree in history and politics. I specialised in the Russian Revolution. I have read the works of Karl Marx. And yet I haven’t a clue about the difference between a Marxist, a Stalinist or a Trot.
