Protect our Green Grass Verges

Protect our Green Grass Verges

The Grass Verges are an integral component of our area. They give a very positive visual impression to any visitors to Mount Merrion.

The origins of Mount Merrion Demesne go back to 1711 when it consisted of 100 acres and to 1760 when it increased to 300 acres, its current size. When John Kenny bought the land in 1934 he intended building a Garden Suburb based on visits to a number of such areas in England and Germany.  An essential component to this plan was a number of wide roads with wide green grass verges.

It is the responsibility of each householder to protect and maintain these beautiful areas.  That responsibility extends to damage done to the grassed areas by contractors, repair, maintenance, delivery, workers and friends visiting the homeowner.  Please refrain from parking on our Green Grass Verges and help us protect and maintain these beautiful areas.
