Every year, Dublin City Council’s Environment Liaison Officers organise an event where, under different headings, residents' groups in the Dublin South Central area are judged and awarded for their efforts.
The categories range from Residential Competitions for smaller and larger housing estates, to Residential Gardens competitions, to competitions between Community Gardens/Allotments and Open Green Space or Urban Village competitions, and a raft of other categories.
It is a marvellous way to engender respect and pride in your area and it is a wonderful event where there are almost as many prizes as there are competitors.
This year’s Prizegiving ceremonies took place in the beautiful Community Centre in Bluebell where, as you will see from the pictures, a great night was had and community bonding across the districts took place. This bond will strengthen all these participating communities.
