It used to be a big, old, infrequently used 'Big Hall' back in the 80s, until Dublin Corporation injected millions into its redevelopment. Now it has endless activities, catering as it does for all the Tenters Communities and the adjoining St. Teresa's Flats residents groups.
The Donore Avenue Youth and Community Centre has come a long way. It was great to see celebrations marking 10 years of catering for the communities in the area.
There was a great reunion of the main groups who use its magnificent facilities on Donore Avenue. The "10 Years of the Big Club" Celebrations were organised to mark the occasion and to allow the serving Lord Mayor to present lovely glass crystals.
All praise must go to the Dublin City Council staff who do a tremendous job in catering for so many diverse groups. Now all that the ladies club needs is its own mini-bus to collect their elderly members, bring them to their many events, and bus them safely home after their night of fun and activities.
