A meeting that has been scheduled between the Lakeside Park/Highfield/Dara Park (LHD) Action Group and Minister Roderic O' Gorman will officially take place this Friday, September 9.

The LHD Action Group was set up last month by concerned residents of the three estates, after it emerged that the government planned to develop 30 modular homes for displaced Ukrainians at a site beside Lakeside Park.

Noreen O' Shea of the LHD Action Group has told the Leader that the meeting will take place this Friday.
