When will DVDS showing the Enniscorthy 1500 celebrations go on sale? (Cllr John O'rourke)

What can be done to persuade Dunnes Stores to bring its long-vacant shop in Rafter Street back to life? (Cllr Paddy Kavanagh)

Will Enniscorthy be featured on stamps when An Post considers how best to commemorate the centenary of the 1916 Easter Rising? (Cllr Keith Doyle)

Will the faded script on the 1916 stone at Pig Market Hill in The Duffry be restored? (Cllr Pat Cody)

Can speakers be put on CCTV cameras to let offenders responsible for littering or anti-social behaviour know they are being watched? (Cllr James Browne)

Will the original Presentation chapel building be painted white in its new role as community and arts centre? (Cllr Tom Moorehouse)
