Na Fianna Club Notes
7ú Bealtaine 2018
If you haven’t made your Metrolink submission yet you have just a few days left as closing date is 5pm this Friday 11th May. All members and member families are urged to make submissions to Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII) on the proposed Emerging Preferred Route (EPR) that would see the Na Fianna pitches on Mobhi Road unavailable to the club and lost to an entire generation of players for anything from 6 to 10 years. Na Fianna is not against the idea of Metrolink and fully understands the need for integrated transport infrastructure in Dublin. But the current proposal where our main pitch and all-weather pitches would be taken over for the duration of the construction would have disastrous consequences for the future of Na Fianna. While support for our cause featured in the Dáil last week, and is to be welcomed, it is important to note that we are still in the middle of a Public Consultation Process and nothing has changed and that the current TII proposal still stands. A detailed step by step guide to making a submission is available to view on the club website www.clgnafianna.ie If you need help to make your submission, ask a family member or a neighbour or a friend for help. Ask any club member for help as they would be only too happy to help you. In terms of the long term sustainability of CLG Na Fianna, this is the most important request that the club will make of you, so please do your part and make a submission on behalf of yourself, your family and future generations of Na Fianna players. Please get your submission in and encourage everyone else to do likewise, the importance of making submissions cannot be emphasised enough. Gloine ‘nar gCroí, Neart ‘nar nGeag agus Beart de Reir ár mBriathar.
