After a hard month of fasting during the Ramadan, there comes a major celebration and festivities to celebrate the ending of the fast. Ireland's growing Muslim population again this year chose to celebrate their Eid Mubarak in the heart of Dublin South Central, by coming together in The Transport Club, Clogher Road, Crumlin.
Again this year, the Equine Centre hosted another Family Fun Day, in conjunction with the Community Garden and other services in the area.
For years, I’ve attended the Chapelizod Residents Association (C.R.A.) AGMs and meetings alongside those of the Chapelizod Old Village Association (C.O.V.A.).
I decided to try to understand the passion of both these voluntary groups, who are passionate about protecting the identity and heritage attaching to this most fascinating village, so I decided to take a closer look.
I have written about this incredible organization before and yet again I must say that the two recent events organised by RADE that I attended were spectacular.
The most recent event was a play they performed in Saint Patricks Cathedral at the ABSOLUTE Fringe Festival called “The Last Ten Years”.
What a nice gentle way to describe those who might be older than 55 years and who are invited each year to celebrate a Christmas get-together in The Moeran Road Hall in Walkinstown.
They celebrate a day of enjoyment with all their “Golden Years” friends and neighbours.
