  26. Motion 538. Councillor Vincent Jackson - The recent opening of another Bookmakers outlet at Ballyfermot Road, in an outlet used previously as an ESB Electric shop, a Bank and a Bookmakers, shows how important it is that DCC develop a retail strategy for suburban shopping areas like Ballyfermot, to stop the proliferation of similar use shops.
