Article Posted: Tuesday 16th September, 2014

At a ceremony hosted by Dublin City Council (Dublin Central Area) last week to celebrate the City Neighbourhoods Districts Awards last night at the Bulfin Senior Citizens Centre in Inchicore, Inchicore Village was awarded two prizes:

(i) 1st Prize:Urban Village Centre (Residential Category)

(ii) Overall Winner in the Residential Competition Categories

The awards were presented to mark the efforts made by voluntary groups across the whole Dublin Central area, including Chapelizod, Ballyfermot, Cherry Orchard, Drimnagh, Crumlin, Rialto, Walkinstown and Dolphin’s Barn among other local groups.

Awards were presented to a range of categories including villages, community gardens, men’s sheds, streets, gardens, schools and for overall community effort.

It is a huge tribute to Inchicore and its environmental group to win these prizes. Their thanks go to all the voluntary members of the group who have made this possible through their regular clean-ups, plantings and contributions to creating clean and safe public spaces in Inchicore, the best urban village in South Central!

Inchicore Village will now go forward to represent South Central Area at the all-Dublin Awards ceremony at Croke Park later this month.

The group welcomes new members to continue the good efforts of its members.
