Save Clondalkin Convent Campaign Launch

Save Clondalkin Convent

The launch of the *Save Clondalkin Convent* campaign took place on Tuesday July 30th on Convent Road outside the Presentation Convent The campaign is a broad coalition of resident’s associations and community groups with cross party-political support that wants to save the historic Clondalkin Convent from a current development proposal from Bartra Property and the Presentation Sisters. The proposal involves a 155 bedroom nursing home four story development that would completely obscure the Convent and undermine the important heritage of the village. The proposal would also have a very significant negative impact on adjoining schools, residential areas and Clondalkin village traffic. While the development proposal has been approved by South Dublin County Council an appeal is currently with An Board Pleanála.

Notwithstanding the appeal process, Save Clondalkin Convent, hopes to mobilise public opinion in opposition to the current proposal and to encourage the Presentation Sisters to meet with the group and discuss more appropriate plans for this site that would meet the needs of both the Presentation Sisters and the wider community.
