New plan for Phoenix Park

New traffic management measures proposed for Dublin's Phoenix Park would include restrictions on commuter car traffic, as well as a bus service inside the park for the first phoenixparktime..

Other measures would involve the closure of side roads to through traffic, a 30km/h speed limit and improved walking and cycling facilities in the 700 hectare green space, which is a majir visitor attraction..
The Phoenix Park Transport and Mobility Options study was requested following controversy over the reopening of side gates to car traffic last summer after Covid-19 restrictions were eased.
The Office of Public Works had announced that the side gates would remain closed to cars to protect the park's status as the city's "green lung".
This was overruled by Minister of State Patrick O'Donovan, who said access was for needed for workers and to stop traffic being diverted into surrounding areas.
A preferred option for dealing with conflicting demands in the park is now understood to have been agreed.

Mediation urged in family dispute

A High Court judge has urged that further efforts be made to mediate a dispute between family members over the running of a company that owns hotels in Dublin and Galway employing 180 people.
Mr Justice David Barniville issued the appeal when making directions on Monday for progressing proceedings brought by Mary Flannery under section 212 of the Companies Act 2014.
Her two brothers, her sister-in-law and an accountant all deny her claims they acted in an oppressive manner infringing her rights concerning the running of Foxfield Inns Designated Activity Company.
As well as the Ashling Hotel in Dublin and the Imperial Hotel in Co Galway, Foxfield has acquired commercial and residential properties which are rented out. A subsidiary of the firm owns and runs the Eglington Hotel in Salthill, Co Galway, used as a direct provision centre.
The action by Ms Flannery, College Road, Co Galway, who is secretary of the company, is against Frank Flannery, Ladyswell Park, Glasson, Athlone, Co Westmeath; Kevin Flannery and his wife, Sheelagh Flannery, The Green, College Road, Co Galway.

Agents want Passenger Protection

 The Irish Travel Agents Association is calling on the Government to take steps to protect consumers by ensuring that customers are adequately compensated for disrupted dawsonbookings amid the current COVID-19 pandemic. As the Government continues to advise against all non-essential travel overseas, the ITAA believe that flights overseas should be cancelled in order to ensure that customers are refunded.
 The ITAA has highlighted the fact that a large number of flights are currently being advertised by airlines, despite the fact that there are no guarantees that customers will be offered cash refunds if they choose not to proceed with their holiday. The Association has warned advised consumers to carefully review all terms and conditions before proceeding with a booking. The Association has also encouraged consumers to book with an ITAA member travel agent to ensure that they are protected should any issues arise.
