I am emailing about the junction of St Alphonus Road and Lower Drumcondra Road

There is a large yellow box controlling that junction but without traffic lights

I would just like to know if anyone is concerned about this particular junction

Thank you

I am researching the Cycle Speedway scene in Dublin in the 1950s. I wonder if there is anybody in the Fairview / Marino area that can shed any light in it. I am interested in anything to do with the sport.
At the moment I am interested in “Croydon Rockets” who races on a track in the space behind the houses of Croydon Terrace.
Any copies of photos, memorabilia or records that are still in existence would be appreciated. Anything loaned to me would be treated with the utmost care and respect and returned as received.
Is there anyone who has any memories or a father (or even grandfather!) who can remember anything? Even the smallest detail would be welcome.
To jog memories here is a list of some teams that raced in Dublin in the 1950s.
Croydon Rockets.
Dublin Eagles.
Sackville Saints.
Whitehall Pirates
Drumcondra Dukes.
Shelbourne Tigers.
Phibsboro Aces
Kildare Devils.
Lindsay Lions.

Thank you in advance.

There is some work in Fairview Park being done at the moment, they are bringing a gas pipe thru the park (as per workman) and today I witness how they pulled a big grown tree of the ground as the workman comment “had to come out as is on the way”, well there is few more trees including a very big one maybe a few decades old who probably will have to come out because “is on the way too”, my question is : Will Dublin City Council give a planning permission to anyone to pull out grown up trees for decades in special in a big City Park as Fairview and if in the planning permission the killing of trees is not included WHO is responsible for the killing of this trees and WHO ordered for this trees to be pulled out as they “are on the way”. (photos and video emailed to Padraig, maybe he can upload them)

Hi all, apologies in advance for the subject matter but I thought I should ask now so hopefully it could be planned and organised on time.
This is my fourth year in the area and I have never seen a Christmas tree erected in Fairview/Marino unlike neighbouring drumcondra, clontarf and east wall by way of the point. Why isn’t FM afforded one? Such a small thing to make a huge impact in the silly season!!!!

Actually Cainneach, in 2012 the local business community and Dublin City Council got together to light up some our existing trees last year:

Hopefully we can continue with the light-up and erect a Christmas tree soon.

Re The Croydon Rockets.
As a matter of accuracy, the track was between the backs of Brien Road, Croydon Green and well in from Shelmartin Road.
The “real” speedway was in Shelbourne Park at that time (Motorbikes).
The track for the bikes was a cummunal effort and the track had been dug out and “cinders” applied.
One person from Croydon Green objected to his bit of “backers” being used and dug it up. If he did, when he woke up the next day all the local dustbins had been dumped in his back garden!.
My memory is a little hazy but if a few of us got together we could add a good bit (synergy!) and it was an interesting project.
