ITEM NO. 26



Question: Councillor B. Dennehy

"To ask the Chief Executive to provide for display lighting to enhance the Portico

in Kenure Rush as a feature in the area?”

Reply:

Fingal County Council can examine the possibility of using illuminating lighting

within or around the Portico in Rush. As this is a protected structure a number of

issues must be considered and approved by the Council’s Conservation Officer.

It might be an appropriate time to engage with the local community and adjacent

national school with a view to preparing a landscape master plan for this open

space. The aim of any proposed master plan would be to anchor the Portico as a

feature within the entire open space by integrating it into a planned and

meaningful landscaping scheme. There will also be a considerable cost

implication in any such planned works and this can only be scheduled if finances

and resources allow.
