Closure of road near Lucan Pool/Esker Manor/Ash Park July 15-20 2024

Updated: 22 hours ago


This update 15th July replaces 12th, 5th July and 20th June posts and clarifies that C1 route will be diverted via Esker Lane/Elmbrook Avenue for the duration of road closure as bus stops beside Lucan Pool complex and Gaelscoil Eiscir Riada will be inaccessible.

NB - Road Closure was due to start this morning 15th, but had not commenced until 1pm. This may be intermittent so keep an eye out.

Apologies for ongoing delays in replies post-election, exacerbated by recent family bereavement. I am now working through this backlog.

Hopefully it's not closed for 5 years like the leisure centre during the construction of a pool. South Dublin County Council what an absolute fiasco and diagraceful way to treat the people of Lucan, beyond a joke!
