About 2 weeks ago, St. Oliver Plunkett Eoghan Ruadh GAA Club set up a delivery service to deliver prescriptions from Meaghers Pharmacy, Kinvara Park for people over 70, who are ocooning or who have underlying medical problems. This has been a great success.
Last week, they expanded the system to include fuel, groceries and other necessities for people not able to get them themselves. People can call 01 90 20 20 1 which will ring on one of their volunteer mobiles and they will coordinate with their club members who can carry out the request. They have also contacted our local SuperValu store at Rathborne and arranged to commence deliveries from the store today, Monday 30th March.
The service is called Pobal Phluincéid and they plan to drop leaflets to the homes in the neighbourhood this week with the contact number as many who may need the service in the area do not use social media. All the volunteers live in the immediate area and they are coordinating daily response teams.
If you are aware of anyone who might require this service please pass on the phone number.
The next meeting of the Navan Road Community Council will take place tomorrow Wednesday 4th March 2020 at 8pm in the Parish Centre, Navan Road. Everyone welcome to attend.

Please see the Navan Road Community Council submission here Dublin Area Bus Network Redesign 2
This is the final opportunity to send your observations/submissions on the proposed changes to Dublin Bus Routes serving the Navan Road area, particularly the No. 122. The 122 will change from a 10 minute service at peak times, travelling to the southside of the city and accessing the main entrance to the Mater Hospital and Crumlin Childrens Hopital, and will become the No. 97, an hourly service to Parnell Square only. The 70 Bus from Dunboyne has been downgraded to 2 buses at peak time and will probably be full by the time it reaches the Navan Road.
The deadline is Tuesday the 10th December 2019, by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or in writing to Dublin Area Bus Network Redesign, National Transport Authority, Dún Scéine, Harcourt Lane, Dublin 2 D02 WT20.
Full details are on the BusConnects brochure dropped into every house over the last few weeks and on www.busconnects.ie.
The revised infrastructure part of the project (gardens, roads etc) will be published in early 2020.
