Save Clondalkin Convent

A very well attended meeting was held recently in Áras Chrónáin to discuss the community’s concerns in relation to the plans for a nursing home at Clondalkin Convent in the village. The community in Clondalkin is opposed to this development and would really appreciate direct discussion with the Presentation Order. A number of appeals have been lodged with An Bord Pleanála by local residents and organisations in Clondalkin, objecting to the plans for the 155-bed nursing home at Clondalkin Convent in the village. A local campaign called ‘Save Clondalkin Convent’ has been set up and you can follow development on their facebook page ‘Save Clondalkin Convent Campaign’

John Curran T.D. added “I have met with many of the groups involved in the ‘Save Clondalkin Convent’ campaign and I have assisted where I could in putting together submissions for An Bord Pleanala in an effort to appeal this decision and I have attended all their public meetings. Many of the concerns include the over development of the site, the loss of historical architecture from the Village, the loss of local heritage from Clondalkin and traffic congestion in the area which is already a bottle neck. An Bord Pleanala are due to make a decision on the case by October 21, 2019.”
