Colm Walsh, one of our Belgrave Road members, writes:
I am looking for support, and any input into designing a pollinator-friendly area along the eastern wall of the upper section of Belgrave Square. Michael Noonan, [the Senior Executive Parks Superintendent] , is very supportive, he also suggested additional areas, e.g.. along the granite wall where there is a grass strip facing the playground.
I am thinking of involving the schools, and we could build beetle houses, and other small features. Mr Noonan is very much concerned that these areas would be low maintenance, and require little weeding.
If there is anyone who would like to assist doing up some sketches, or plans, that would be most welcome. My next stage it to present these to him, and then see what the Council might supply, we would have to provide much of the labour.
He also referred to Mountpleasant Square, where the school was given the paint by DCC and the parents association treated the wall which has transformed the park.

Here is an example of a similar project I saw in Dundrum
