Hallowe’en Fireworks Display, Donaghmede Park, 31st October 2018 @ 6.00pm

We are pleased to inform residents that Dublin City Council is arranging a Hallowe’en Fireworks Display in Donaghmede Park on the evening of Wednesday 31st October 2018. The display will be staged by a professional pyrotechnics company engaged by Dublin City Council, and will take place at approximately 6.00pm. There will be music from 5.30pm in the lead-up to the fireworks display itself.

Reminder: All households, traders and factories in the area are asked to heed the notices given by Dublin City Council, Dublin Fire Brigade, An Garda Síochána and DERA. Do not dispose of materials of any kind that might be used in a bonfire. It is an offence to do so, and is also a major safety hazard putting lives, property and our environment at risk. In particular, please take care to secure your wheelie bins at this time.

Health & Safety is our first priority. Please obey the Gardaí and Stewards at the event. Children must be accompanied by an adult and must be supervised at all times. Restricted lighting is necessary to achieve maximum effect with the fireworks display. For your personal safety and that of those in your care, please bring a torch. Please do no litter. Strictly no alcohol permitted at this event.

No liability shall attach itself to DERA from any damage, injury or loss arising from any aspect of this event.
