This is most likely of interest to those familiar with the Knocklyon /Rathfarnham area. A 2001 newsletter from Fianna Fail councillor John Lahart.
The opening story concerns the destroying of some playing fields and open spaces in the area by Itinerants. It actually ended where the council had to pay quite a large sum of money to get some football pitches fit for playing again.
The Green Route, planning, Rathfarnham Castle and Rathfarnham Village are amongst the many issues covered.
