Public voting on South Dublin County Council’s €300k Have Your Say initiative in the Firhouse Bohernabreena Electoral Area has commenced. Residents are asked to go to the Council’s website and vote on a shortlist of 19 projects which aim to improve the quality of life for residents, visitors and businesses in the area. The Council received 187 submissions during the consultation process which took place during October.
