Give us our jacks back.

The following letter is published in today's Irish Times. I’ve been waiting for some time to have a go at Owen Keegan, County Manager Dun Laoghaire - Rathdown County Council, and a recent letter in the Irish Times criticising the many eyesores on the South County Dublin Coastline provided a good opportunity.

Madam, - AJ Rous (February 27th) is disappointed at the state of the bandstand and its roofless companion shelter on Dún Laoghaire's East Pier, one of the borough's most popular amenities. Both structures are the responsibility of the county council, rather than the Harbour Company which recently improved the paving and lighting on the pier.

He didn't comment on the state of the public toilets, which are also the responsibility of the county council, and have been closed for well over 12 months. There is no indication as to why they are closed, when they might re-open, or where alternative facilities might be found.

Dún Laoghaire residents would be grateful if county manager Owen Keegan could display the same zeal for providing such essential public facilities as he does for increasing the revenue generated from car parking and clamping. Perhaps before the weather improves and the walkers come out in force, he might find time to do something about this.
Yours etc, Peter Molloy
