Print Condell Road housing development, Pat O’Neill pictured at the proposed site by Limerick City and County Council for 43 Housing Units. Picture: Keith WisemanA standalone housing scheme on the outskirts of Limerick city with “no proper infrastructure and no facilities” will not work.That’s according to community activist Pat O’Neill who says there has been a huge outcry over the proposed housing scheme development on the Condell Road with 50 objections lodged, including one from Clonmacken Residents Association.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Pat, who represents the residents’ group, has coordinated meetings between residents and councillors following local concern over the proposed development.One of the main objections from the people of the Northside to this 43-unit social housing scheme, he explained, is the location of the development.He claims there are no facilities convenient to the proposed site and that it is “isolated and situated on a flood plain with no metropolitan bus stop nearby and no provision for one either as part of the proposal”.“We rallied together to challenge this knee-jerk idea of the council officials. If history tells us anything is that a sole housing scheme with no proper infrastructure and no facilities will not work.“Everything is wrong with this proposed development. We want to learn from the mistakes of the past. We welcome a new housing scheme for the area but not as a knee-jerk reaction to the current housing crisis. Let’s do it right and proper so that everyone stands to benefit,” he declared.A spokesman for Limerick City and County Council said it was incorrect to say that the houses would be built in a flood zone as the planned location was not subject to flooding.The site of the proposed development is located approximately 800 metres, around a ten-minute walk to the Jetland retail hub area, which is serviced by public transport.“The Council believes it is important to ensure that the future residents of this development have adequate social and community infrastructure within a reasonable walking distance of their homes.“The general area is a location of planned future development with an existing permission on adjoining lands for around 400 new housing units to be developed by commercial entities. New bus routes tend to follow demand, and as the population in this area increases, public transport links to the city may be developed by Bus Eireann,” the spokesman added.

Troy loses ‘man of character’ with Rice’s death

first_img Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day By The Penny Hoarder Sponsored Content Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration “At Alabama, they made a lineman out of Bill,” Davis said. “He was big, tall and fast and that was an unusual combination for a man that big back in those days. Bill told me a lot of stories about playing for Bear Bryant. He was fearful of him but had tremendous respect for him.”Mal Moore, UA athletic director, played with Rice at Alabama and attended his funeral services on Monday. “Mal Moore, Paul Bryant Jr. and several of Bill’s teammates attended the funeral and that speaks volumes for Bill,” Davis said.Not only was Rice a great historian and a celebrated sports figure, he was also a hometown kind of guy. When the city of Troy was putting together a recycling program, Rice was the man the city wanted.“Bill came out of retirement to do that for us,” Lunsford said. “Testimony to the job that he did was that Troy was named the number one recycling city (with a population under 100,000) in the country. It was Bill’s idea to get the recycling message across through small kids. We started by going into the schools and talking to the classes and the students took the message home. Recycling increased exponentially throughout the city.”Rice served 22 years in the military and retired as a lieutenant colonel from the Alabama National Guard. He took great pride in having served.But there was nothing that Rice took more pride in than being a Troy boy.“Bill Rice Sr. left behind a legacy of words that tell the story of the town that he loved and one that loved him back,” Lunsford said.At six feet and five inches and 200 plus pounds, Bill Rice Sr. appeared to be “a big ol’ bear.” “But underneath Bill was just a teddy bear,” Davis said. “He was a great guy. He was a man of tradition and a man of character.”That’s how history will remember him. Lunsford said he doesn’t know of anyone, except the late Margaret Pace Farmer, who knew as much about Troy and its people as Bill Rice.“Bill loved Troy and he loved learning about its history and sharing it with others,” Lunsford said. “He realized the value of preserving our history by writing it down. He wanted people to know and understand what our community was like and how and why it has changed and the role people played in making us who we are today.”Rice authored three history books including the “Troy 1838-2006” and “Trojan Influence.” By Jaine Treadwell Bill Rice Sr. was laid to rest Monday in the town that he loved and honored all of his life.Troy Mayor Jimmy Lunsford said there has never been anyone who took more pride in his hometown than Rice or anyone who has done more to preserve its past for future generations.“Bill will be remembered by the city for his contributions to the recycling program,” Lunsford said. “He will be remembered by sports fans as the tall, lanky fellow who played football for Troy High School and then for ‘the Bear.’ But mainly, Bill will be remembered for his interest and knowledge of the history of Troy.” Skip Troy loses ‘man of character’ with Rice’s death Book Nook to reopen Rice was a part of the history of Troy, the sports history.“Bill was the premier football player to come out of Troy, other than(University of Alabama All-American) Bobby Marlow,” said William Davis, a neighbor and longtime friend.Rice played fullback and defensive tackle in high school and was in Bear Bryant’s first recruiting class at the University of Alabama. He was a member of the 1961 National Championship team, Bryant’s first at Alabama.
