Cuts to Balbriggan Library Postponed

May 13, 2013 0

We just received notification from Joe O’Brien, Green Party Representative for Balbriggan, Skerries, Rush, Lusk and rural Fingal that Fingal County Council’s plan to cut the library opening hours for Balbriggan, Rush and Baldoyle has been postponed!

He has stated that we are not out of the woods yet as the money to keep the hours as they are still has to be found but at this stage he wants to acknowledge and congratulate you all in standing up for your library, coming to one of the public meetings he hosted or organising or getting involved in one of the actions against the cuts. It is heartening to see people power and democracy at work – albeit only for what is at the moment a small temporary victory.

Well done to everyone who supported this campaign!
