Welcome to Balally Residents Association

Welcome to Balally.com. Balally Residents Association has been in existence for almost 50 years. It plays an important role in looking after the interests of residents. We strive to maintain the well being and sense of community within our area on many levels. We host social functions and events for neighbours to enjoy together and ensure that the neighbourhood is maintained as best as it can be while representing all members.

If you are not already a member or are new to the area, we urge you to become a member by getting in touch or contacting a committee representative. We’re always looking for more volunteers to help out so please let us know.

AGM 2018

The annual general meeting for Balally Residents’ Association will take place on Monday 22nd October at 8pm in St. Olaf’s School. We look forward to seeing you then. If anyone would like to help out, this is a great opportunity to get involved, whether it is to organise an event, collect subs, be part of the committee or to help with gardening and maintenance. This year we are considering entering the Tidy Districts Competition so want to gauge the level of interest from everyone in Balally.

Irish Water Repairs

As you may have noticed there were water main repairs and upgrades taking place within the estate over recent months. While the majority of the repairs are now complete, the reinstatement of paths and verges still requires a lot of work, and have been like this for a considerable amount of time.

We have been in touch with both Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council and GMC, the contractors, to express our concern with the delays and quality of the work. DLRCC have given us assurances that they will work with their crews over the coming weeks to make all repairs necessary. We are especially aware of the need to do this right, as only last year the council had done a great job in upgrade works throughout the estate.

30km/h Speed Limit

Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council is introducing a special speed limit of a 30km/h in identified residential housing estates and local residential roads. Balally estate is on the list of roads that will have this change, and the council will introduce the new limits and alert signs in the coming weeks. See the Council’s page for more information. Gardai distributed this information leaflet during the week.
