Work has begun on the Community Garden in Donaghmede Park, in cooperation with Dublin City Council and with generous support from local businesses. While progress has necessarily been slow over the winter months, there’s a lot of work ahead this year to bring the plan to completion. Selection of furniture and signage is under way, and a planning meeting with DCC will be held in the coming weeks.
Our picture shows some of the younger residents of Donaghmede lending a hand with planting. The fruits of their labours should be visible soon, now that spring is in the air!
We’d like to remind residents that bicycles, skateboards and scooters are not allowed on the all-weather pitch, to protect the surface from damage. Signage to this effect will be erected soon, and we ask parents to remind their children of this necessary rule. We are investigating the provision of a bicycle rack outside. We also remind residents that dogs are not allowed on the all-weather pitch. The pitch is a valuable resource, and it’s wonderful to have such an amenity freely available, so it’s in everyone’s interest to protect it.
