The community of Belmayne are in shock following the news that two schools in the area were found to be in breach of fire safety standards, according to local Councillor Michael O'Brien.
St Francis of Assisi National School and Belmayne Educate Together were named in the report along with Powerstown Educate Together. Schools in Greystones and Mullingar were also deemed not to be up to standard.
Dublin City Councillor Michael O'Brien says the locality feel it is an additional injustice due to historical problems regarding building regulations in the community and surrounding area.
"As with nearby Priory Hall not to mention the the problem of pyrite which greatly impacted on Belmayne this is yet another example of the legacy of soft touch building regulations. In place of a hands-on regime of fire safety compliance during the construction stage we instead had an unreliable system of self-certification.
"Belmayne and the surrounding communities of Clare Hall, Clongriffin and Balgriffin whose children have suffered multiple injustices arising from poor planning and infrastructure provision. To have one permanent build school non-complaint as turns out to be the case in Powerstown, Mullingar and Greystones is bad enough but to be landed with two non-permanent adjacent schools that are over capacity both non compliant is a disaster for Belmayne.
Cllr. O'Brien says he'll be submitting an emergency motion to Dublin City Council ahead of Monday's meeting.
He's hoping Fire Safety Officers need to set out which schools, public buildings and housing estates remain to be inspected.
In the wake of the Grenfell Tower disaster, Cllr. O'Brien feels the public need extra reassurances that public and domestic buildings are safe in the Dublin City Council area and across the state.
