    T O'Higgins - Shantalla

    Most of the trees have been felled when I passed there this morning at 07h30. All those facing Mount Pleasant Drive are gone, not sure about those near Ivors. Sign of new Development or just more car parking?

    Whole site being 'cleared' up, also on the SQR side

    During the last storm huge branches came off these trees and I was told that the trees were deemed unsafe. I reckon they are going to put in more parking spaces.
    There was always a lot of rubbish dumped between the wall and the trees. Hopefully that dumping will stop now.

    Mount Pleasant was destroyed with brown bits coming off the trees the whole street and gardens were ruined and they had no sunlight there either about time they cut them down.

    Still a number of trees standing that face onto Seamus Quirke Road / Westside Pitches.

    They were planting along the wall facing Mount Pleasant today. Looks like it's going to be a hedge eather than trees.

    Was chatting to a resident the other day and they are over the moon. They don't need their lights on during the day anymore.

    Not sure. Only saplings at this stage, but it is something leafy. Will get a closer look next time I walk past.
