Fair play to the community in Balbriggan who mobilised like never before in response to Fingal County Council’s ridiculous plans to move the popular library in the town square to a new premises at Gallen’s Mills, to facilitate a new Social Welfare Office.  After a huge public meeting and demonstration in the town it looks like the Council have been forced to reconsider.  A special meeting of the Balbriggan/Swords area committee of Fingal County Council is being convened for newt Wednesday 29th at 4 pm in the Council offices in Swords. People should attend en masse.

Below is a link to last Saturdays protest, thanks to Eric Campbell for the excellent footage:
