Canvassing in Cherryfield

I thought some of the regular blog readers - hello there - might like to read about some of the more obvious work of the campaign, so I took the camera with me to Cherryfield this afternoon for a canvass session.

Following a spot of leafleting in Greenpark this morning, we moved to the other end of Dublin 12 for a canvass.

Cherryfield and Beechfield are in the Dublin South Central end of the new Tallaght Central ward. Locals are particularly concerned at the overdevelopment at the Ashleaf, the lack of facilities for children and youth, and vandalism, but as you'd expect the over-riding concerns are the same everywhere in the ward - jobs, the economy and education.

The reception on the doorsteps was very warm indeed. Having already campaigned heavily in the area, we are trying to ensure our early work pays off. The pictures, taken by Paul Dillon, show myself with some of our campaign team on Beechfield Close.
