Chairman’s Message Spring 2017

From the ULSARA 2017 Newsletter and www.ulsara.ie

It is hard to believe that ULSARA will be celebrating its 50th Anniversary in 2018. We hope to mark this milestone in a number of ways, including a publication on the development of the various 'estates' in our area.


Our founders perceived a threat to the residential character of the ULSARA quarter if the commercial centre of the city was allowed to encroach. Whatever the problems we now face from development, they pale when compared to the ignorance and hostility faced by our founders.


Their foresight has allowed us to continue to maintain and enjoy this beautiful area, containing a large number of houses that are of architectural importance, within easy reach of the city. We feel an obligation to help to perserve the Georgian and Victorian heritage of the city and do our best to meet it.


ULSARA’s activities rely on the annual membership fees. Thus the support of existing and new members is essential  for our future. The annual membership form is available for download at www.ulsara.ie and gives you the option to pay by direct debit if that is more convenient for you.
