Appart from the bar, we now have the very lavishly presented Union Café.

I had some very nice coffees and a very tasty meal. Prepared and served to perfection by very friendly helpful professional staff.
It seemed to me that many of the staff were locals. I was delighted to see the support for local employment by this home grown company, something which I feel strongly about; we must support local business and as a consequence support local employment. and in this way we make a stronger local economy and make our community a better places in which to live.
The food here is definitely worth trying. Drop in to see what's on offer or view the menu here

In common with many suburbs in the greater Dublin area there has been a marked increase in incidents of crime against both the property and person of residents of Mount Merrion in recent years. Such incidents include successful and attempted break-ins to property, theft of property, car keys and cars, theft of transportable property from garages and sheds, damage to property and assaults/muggings on residents, especially those returning from shopping or banking. Perpetrators of these crimes are essentially looking for cash and easily disposable items such as jewellry or small electronic goods.

The Gardai request that residents take sensible security precautions, especially in the evenings and at night. An area that is a cause for serious concern for residents is the proliferation in the numbers of unlicensed and unsolicited providers and vendors of services. These include:

  • Repairers of Roofs, Gutters, Facia Boards, Soffits
  • Menders of Chimneys
  • Tarmac, Pathway and Paving contractors
  • Hedge and Garden specialists
  • Waste disposal merchants
  • External painting contractors.

Of course there are numerous totally legitimate providers of these services but they are more willing to leave a business card and/or brochure of their service and do not demand an immediate response because 'we are working in the locality'. Garda advice --- '˜Do not buy any service at the door'. If in doubt or feel intimidated or pressurized call the Gardai in Blackrock 6665200. They will be happy to check out the background and validity of the caller.

At this time of year many households are visited by youngsters requesting sponsorship to raise money for a school, club or suchlike. Again there are a smattering of bogus callers involved and all requests/callers. should be supported by IDs or school headed letters. If in doubt please contact the School or Club or Charity before parting with your cash.

Over the past twelve months the MMRA together with the Gardai and DLR Co.Co. has looked at various ways of reducing or hopefully eliminating activities that effect the safety and security of residents. Research has shown that the Muintir na Tire sponsored 'Community Alert' scheme which is operational in hundreds of rural and urban areas around the country was the most suitable and least intrusive scheme for an area such as Mount Merrion.

So, it has been decided to erect a number of 'Community Alert' signs at each pedestrian and vehicle entrance to the Demesne. The Gardai will monitor their effectiveness at reducing/eliminating unwanted Visitors but the signs are there to raise awareness among residents also. Self-adhesive Door/Window stickers bearing security tips are enclosed with this notice, please affix the sticker to the front door/window. The Gardai recommend that the activities of any suspicious vehicles and/or persons should be reported to them at 6665200. They will take appropriate action.

Finally keep an eye on your senior neighbours, check on them regularly, and see if they need anything. Be security conscious, be safe and be happy.
