Dublin City Council should provide family friendly big screen viewings for our match against France
Following Ireland’s fantastic EURO 2016 result last night I am calling on Dublin City Council to provide family friendly big screen viewings in Dublin City. The match against France takes place on Sunday afternoon and appropriate facilities should be provided to allow families to enjoy the game in a safe and atmospheric way.
Everyone remembers the fabulous scenes of community celebration in Dublin Castle on the occasion of the Yes vote in last year’s marriage referendum. We should provide similar facilities to celebrate our country’s incredible sporting achievement.
Robbie Brady’s goal has inspired thousands of young children to get involved and support the Irish team. While many families will chose to watch the match at home others will want to come together with their friends in a place that is not a pub. Organising a safe, alcohol-free, family- friendly area with a big screen will create such a place.
