Coach-Free Mountjoy Square!

A coach-free zone
Mountjoy Square Society is delighted to announce that, as of October 2011, Mountjoy Square is no longer to be used as a city coach park. This is a great step forward for one of the inner city’s most densely populated areas and the largest green space in Dublin 1.

We would like to sincerely thank all those who played their part in this move – City Councillors, Officials and An Garda Siochana among others.

Next steps
Mountjoy Square is one of Dublin’s finest Georgian squares but, unfortunately, also the most neglected. We believe that a key reason for this historic neglect is that until recently the people living and working in Mountjoy Square have not organised effectively as a community. As such we have not been identified by key political and official decision makers – as a community meriting protection, support and encouragement. Because of this, the public areas in Mountjoy Square have not been managed with primary regard for the benefit of the people who live and work there nor have we been given the resources that many other communities in our city take for granted.
