Council approves the demolition of one of Dublin’s biggest churches

Final Mass

However, the decision to grant permission for the work took more than eight months, following concerns raised by the council planners over the future use of the residual church lands. “The development description and accompanying planning report both state that the residual site area will be the subject of a separate future application, and the architectural design statement states that this area will be used for the development of accommodation for senior citizens, although no further information is provided.”

The parish owns St Brigid’s, a girls’ primary school to the south of the field, and St Fergal’s Boys National School to the north. Coláiste Eoin, a post-primary school not owned by the parish, is also immediately north of the field.
