Primary Colours ExhibitionPrimary Colours Art Group, again this year, held their Annual Art Exhibition in Saint Bernadette’s Parish Hall, Crumlin, and I was privileged to be asked again to officially open the exhibition.

This Community Arts Project is a collaboration between Scoil Iosagain and the Marist Primary Schools in Crumlin and is supported by the City Of Dublin V.E.C. who help fund the project.

Again, this exhibition of over 130 magnificent paintings was amazingly professional in style and presentation and the brilliant works of art produced are a credit to those who organised the project.

Child Care Facility

I am delighted to be able to report that work on the childcare facility in Pearse Park is going well and should be finished in February.

At the next meeting of the City Council there will be a proposal moved to grant the license to run the facility to the Dublin 12 Childcare Consortium. 

The granting of the license will be another important milestone on the way to getting good quality and affordable child care for children in the local area.

I was delighted to be at party in the Transport Club on Clogher Road to witness the hidden talents of dozens of local ladies burst into the open where they mesmerized a hall of their peers. 

Their tutor Stephen can be proud to have achieved the remarkable, to get so many local women to act their heart out on a stage watched by their neighbours and families and friends. Their self confidence would put many a politician to shame! 

To think that all the work involved in organising this party and stage show was done by volunteers, mainly local women is testament to the organisational skills of “The Boss” Ms. Ann Sharpe and her band of volunteers. They all deserve to take a dramatic bow and they deserve our applause.

The actresses and supporters can be seen enjoying themselves if you want to see the pictures then press HERE
