More About The Clontarf Residents' Association
The Clontarf Residents’ Association was set up in 1970 to look after the interests of all residents of Clontarf. We recently celebrated our 40th Anniversary.
We are non-sectarian, non-racist and non-party-political. We promote the interests of members in a democratic fashion and with respect for all. We encourage community integration and we respect multi-culturalism and diversity.
We regularly coordinate campaigns on behalf of residents in matters of mutual interest.
Many individual roads or groups of roads have their own Residents’ Associations that deal with issues to do with their own specific area.
The CRA looks at issues that impact on the wider Clontarf community. We regularly co-ordinate campaigns on behalf of residents and work with the Clontarf Business Association and other community groups on matters of mutual interest. The Association has campaigned on many issues over the years including the ongoing fight to protect Dublin Bay, the more recent campaign in relation to the Flood Defence on the Promenade and the current works on the Clontarf Road from Bull Bridge to Causeway Road.
The Association will also address issues specific to a small number of residents where we are asked to do so. We cannot get involved in planning or other disputes between individual neighbours but we will make observations on applications when we are approached by a number of residents.
Membership of the association is open to all of the residents of Clontarf. Our Annual subscription is still only €10 per annum. It can be paid using PayPal (click here) or by dropping your sub in an envelope clearly marked with your Name, Address, Email and Phone Number into McCabe Auctioneers, 2A Vernon Avenue. The sub is used to part fund the running of Clontarf.ie, which is a great resource for our area, to cover the cost of public liability insurance, to pay for observations on planning applications, to meet the cost of printing occasional newsletters, etc.
The committee meets on a monthly basis throughout the year except August. We hold our AGM at the end of the calendar year. Throughout the year we issue updates on items of interest to the community via this website and by email. If you wish to sign up for updates please email us with your name and home address. Rest assured we will not disclose your details to third parties.
You can contact us directly by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
