Burglaries in the Area!

Dear Resident(s),

We are contacting you to inform you of a recent spate of burglaries in the Carpenterstown/Riverwood & Luttrelstown areas in the past weeks/month.  


At the beginning of March, the Riverwood resident's  association forwarded on an email in which they indicated they had four burglaries in the one night. 


Then on the night of 16th/17th March, two houses were broken into in Sycamore & Maple.    And again on the 23rd, two more houses were burgled.   

The Gardaí are aware of all the incidents and are actively investigating these crimes, with some definite leads into a number of groups.

CPRA update

MESSAGE FROM Community Gardai

Our Community Garda Michael McCoy has advised that there has been another big drop in Burglaries over the past 3 months in our vicinity. One robbery occurred in OAKTREE estate, and one in MAPLE within that time. In one instance, he advises keys were fished out through the letter box and in another access was gained through a back door. Garda McCoy advises the fishing through the letterbox is still being used actively – advice is DO NOT LEAVE YOUR KEYS within reach of your letterbox. He also advised several arrests have taken place in the Castleknock area and this appears to have helped to lower the crime rates.

NEXT MEETING

Monday 10th June 2013 at Castleknock Community Centre. The current Association committee has just 6 members and while the Association luckily is represented by 2 persons from Cherry, Maple & Sycamore estates - the committee needs more members to promote its position in Fingal County Council and ensure the Association continues. You do not have to attend each meeting or participate in each activity, you do have to care for your community and have an open mind to other residents opinions. Come along to our next meeting and find out about CPRA!

Items of note:-
 
a) Pot Holes on Sycamore Avenue. These have been added to the Winter Works programme by Fingal County Council since November last and we hope they will take these in hand very shortly. We note these have widened significantly since the original request was submitted in writing last autumn.
 
b) Also the tree at Maple Drive/Maple Roundabout (corner above Carpenterstown Park granite sign) is on the winter works programme for removal - cut back.
 
c) A request to Fingal County Council's Operations department in Coolmine to cut back the tree blocking Street Light No 4 (Sycamore Avenue adjacent to Sycamore Lawn) is listed for pruning during the Council's current pruning season.

Clean-up Day

The Carpenterstown Park residents started gathering at Tennis court greens at around 10:30am. Resource materials like gloves, bags, litter pickers e.t.c. were provided by the Carpenterstown park Residents association. Within an hours time lot of kids came out along with their parents to help in this cause. It generated quite an excitement among them as everyone was keen to bring in a bigger bag full of litter. Many residents got to know each other through this healthy exercise. Some residents got their shovels out and started uprooting the weeds alongside the Sycamore avenue. Within two hours loads of litter bags filled and piled up under the Carpenterstown park Residents association banner. Later on, in liaison with Fingal County Council, litter bags were collected by their staff. Carpenterstown park Residents association had also some refreshments and goodies for the kids in the shape of chocolates, sweets, chips, juices, fizzy drinks and biscuits.
