SUBSCRIPTION

As per our Spring newsletter distributed the 1st and 2nd weeks of April, Committee members are currently carrying out the subscription collection of €2.00 and an email/mobile contact for future communication so that Residents can be updated on water outages (almost daily in parts of Dublin 15) or security alerts. We expect to have this completed in the next few weeks, so look out for us. 
Committee members are doing this in pairs and no one else is acting for the Committee. If anyone calls to the door and you are unsure, don't give out your information - email us and we'll confirm if we called to your door. 

SPRAYING OF PESTICIDES

AVOID MID-DAY Spraying. The Council have advised us that spraying of pesticides (weed-killer/insect control ) during DAWN TO DUSK hours is impacting nation-wide on the BEE population.  Bees keep flowers/vegetables growing year after year - this year the BEE populationi is substantially down.  Advice when spraying, keep the spray nozzle directed LOW and over only the area you are spraying; Ideal spraying times are early morning (after dew has dried - 10am and early dusk @6.30pm - AVOID MID-DAY SPRAYING. Also - avoid spraying with the wind coming at you - it will blow the spray back onto you and could cause breathing problems.
