Lucan Festival Christmas Tree lights Motion 28/9/23

MOTION: Councillor L. O’Toole
This Committee request the CE to support the Lucan Festival by way of switching on the Christmas tree lights in Lucan Village. It’s appreciated that a recent discussion took place on this matter, however given new members have joined the Lucan Festival committee and some we’re unaware of this situation they are looking to get help on this for the year 2023 until they have time to prepare a plan around the provision of Christmas lights.
A report was given to this Area Committee on the same matter in March of this year under Motion No. 14.
To summarise, we were in communication in November last year with John O’Brien of Lucan Festival.
We committed at that time to assisting Lucan Festival again with the following tasks for Christmas 2022.
• Safety check and commissioning of lights.
• Attendance if required at the Switch On Event
• Decommissioning of lights in early January 2023.
These tasks were duly completed.
We also stated that unfortunately due to increasing demands on our resources, we would not be able to assist them for any subsequent events in 2023 or ongoing in relation to these lights, which were purchased originally under the Have Your Say initiative.
We also set out in our communication in November 2022 to Mr. O’Brien, that the SDCC metered supply at the Village Green would be available to Lucan Festival going forward for the supply of their Christmas Lights. We stated that in order for us to make the connection for future festive events, we would require a RECI/Safe Electric Certificate, for all Lucan Festival lighting requiring a connection, to be issued to us by a registered electrical contractor in a timely manner before the Christmas period in order to arrange the connection. We are still in a position to facilitate Lucan Festival in this matter on receipt of the above certification.
