More youth centres, parks and cycle lanes should be introduced in the city.

That's the view of local young people following a survey conducted by the Lord Mayor of Dublin Caroline Conroy.

The forum - conducted across five schools - asked students to share ideas on what they would like to change in the city for their age group.

More football facilities, mixed schools, and picnic tables were also amongst suggestions.

“It’s so important that young people have a voice and that we listen to them,” said the Lord Mayor.

“Youth is one of the themes of my term in office and I’m hoping we can now establish a focus group of these young people to work with the City Council in the future on some of these ideas.”

The young people were from Trinity Comprehensive School in Ballymun, St Michael’s Holy Faith in Finglas, Kylemore College in Ballyfermot, Clogher Road Community College in Crumlin and Beneavin De La Salle College in Finglas.
