I agree wholeheartedly with the comments of T Fellingham (The Weekend Sun, February 8) regarding Phoenix Park. Why couldn’t the council have used the Reserve Contributions to provide extra seating along Ocean Beach, Drury Park and Coronation Park, with additional picnic facilities at those two parks?
That would surely have met the green space requirement for the expenditure of the funds.
Instead, they have turned a pleasant green space into an ugly concrete eyesore.
If they couldn’t have found something better on which to spend those funds, they should simply have paid them back.
Not only should the braindead functionaries who were responsible be removed, but the councillors who endorsed the proposal should be named so we don’t in ignorance re-elect them.
