3,000 turn up for 'Submission Sunday', supported by local celebrities

28 Nov 2011

Clontarf Flood Wall - Submission SundayOver 3,000 people joined us for our final event which was staged in opposition to the Clontarf flood defence scheme, with many walking from the promenade to the rugby club.

About 1,400 submissions were signed at a specially erected tent in the rugby club car park.

The meeting was addressed by Gus O'Hara, Chair of the Clontarf Business Association and Deirdre Tobin, Chair of Clontarf Residents' Association. Special guest speakers included actor/comedian, Niall Toibin and TV Garden Designer, Diarmuid Gavin.

Also on hand to lend support were PJ Gallagher, Cian Healy, Don Wycherley, Holly Carpenter and Debbie Deegan.

We are very grateful for their support and for all the people who turned up on the day to make one final protest at these plans.
