Susie Aherne-Grey lives in a beautiful Georgian house on Pembroke Road, with high ceilings and large windows.

But she fears losing three metres of her front garden under the Bus Connects plan, which will mean "traffic will be flying past these windows".

Her home is a protected structure, built in the 1800s. The age of the house certainly adds character, but also structural problems.

She is also in a somewhat unique position, because her home is also her business. She has a Montessori school in her basement.

Three metres of her front garden are potentially going to be purchased by the NTA, including ancient trees.

Ms Aherne-Grey also has a very rare hybrid arbutus strawberry tree in her front yard. It is one of only 10 in Ireland, and hers is the widest and tallest in the country.

"You're going from having this lovely greenery around you, and the birds singing. You just feel like you have some contact with nature, even though you're in the city.
