Imagine in the midst of the country’s depression that the people of Drimnagh could, on the same night, have two brilliant events?
I was delighted to be invited to record, in photographic detail, the presentation of the certificates to the participants in the excellent IT course for beginners, held in the John Bosco Hall on Friday night 11th February 2011.
It is always so pleasant and rewarding to see our mature residents keeping up with the fast changing “techie” world of Emails, Twitter, and Facebook etc. The people of Drimnagh are blessed to have these courses provided in the Bosco by such talented teachers like Ger Devereux and his co teacher Ciara Woods.
The Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT) Digital Community Programme, which is part of The Community Links Programme (LINKS), is a most exemplary concept where the Social Community Outreach programme from a third level Institution reaches out to communities throughout Dublin City.
It was a delight to see Professor Tommy Cooke from DIT makes the presentations and even more delighted to see all the participants enjoy the night.
Not long after these certificates were presented we made our way up to Our Lady’s Hall to hear a magnificent concert which brought back memories of concerts held years ago before the Hall was closed. We must congratulate, not only the people of Drimnagh, who turned out in their hundreds for the concert, but to admire the new committee determined to reopen the great Our Lady’s Hall for community activities.
Take a look at the recipient and their certificates:
