Ballyfermot Showcase


Ballyfermot has been transformed from the days of the slanging “Bally Far Away” days to what it is now: a hugely organised and integrated community with services that are the envy of other “older” communities like Drimnagh and Crumlin.


Although it benefited immensely from being chosen as a European Project under the “Urban” Programmes, I think it was the decision of Dublin City Council to decentralise its services to the beautiful Ballyfermot Civic Centre that gave the whole community a focal point.

I had the pleasure to see how the various service providers used the public space in the Civic Centre to show off the many and varied services that they provide. It is most impressive and worthy of praise and support.
