The South West Inner City Network, in conjunction with An Garda Síochána Kevin Street, presented the SWICN Youth Achievement Awards and Community Awards 2012.
It is one of the best ceremonies to be held - and a fantastic venue to have a Community Awards event; it is Saint Catherine’s famous church on Thomas Street, Dublin 8. The awards were given to school groups, sporting clubs, academic awards and individual awards for services rendered in making the South West Inner City a vibrant and welcoming part of Dublin 8. www.swicn.ie
Although I have attended many events here, I must admit that this year was outstandingly successful and good. So what made it so good this year?
The organization and commitment by so many players, from the volunteers, the schools and the clubs, along with the Gardaí and their input, ensured a full house (or church) with standing room only.
The range of sponsors and the support of Dublin City Council also ensured that a great night would be enjoyed by all, parents and participants alike.
