New Planting at South Avenue Entrance to Mount Merrion

MMRA, in collaboration with DLR, have organised and part funded the lovely new planting at the entrance to Mount Merrion on South Avenue.

The agapanthus, bergina, ferns and prostate pines will continue the gorgeous planting on the Lower Kilmacud Road. This will be further enhanced by bulbs to give Springtime colour. Your subscriptions to MMRA, and the goodwill of DLR has enabled this project. Thank you to all involved.

Resident Dog Owners & Dog Walkers

MMRA have installed a Mutt Mitt Dog Foul Bag Dispenser outside Eds to help reduce incidence of dog fouling in Mount Merrion.

With everyone spending so much time in their gardens and many working from home, please be mindful of neighbours. Many dogs do not like to being left alone in gardens for lengthy periods and in some cases the presence of foxes will give rise to certain dog breeds reacting with sustained barking.

There are many reasons why a dog may be barking and dog owners may not realise that it’s happening, the extent of it, or that it may be a disruption to others. Any concerns should be addressed in a friendly manner by speaking with your neighbour.
