The annual prizes for the gardens maintained to the highest standard in Walkinstown were presented again this year in the Eleanora pub.
It was my great pleasure to attend the celebrations commemorating the staff and volunteers of the Walkinstown Social Services Centre. The staff and volunteers there have, over a 50-year period, served the elderly and the Walkinstown community in such a professional and human manner that it strengthens our resolve that there is far more goodness in this world than badness.
The 2015 AGM of the Walkinstown Residents Association took place in the Moeran Road Hall, Walkinstown.
This was the 66th AGM of one of Dublin’s oldest Residents Associations, and while the numbers of residents attending has fallen over the years, the hard-core of community activists are still showing up and playing their part.
What a nice gentle way to describe those who might be older than 55 years and who are invited each year to celebrate a Christmas get-together in The Moeran Road Hall in Walkinstown.
They celebrate a day of enjoyment with all their “Golden Years” friends and neighbours.
It is quite amazing that a Residents Association can still be active after so many years. I understand that the Walkinstown Residents Association is the longest serving Residents Association in Ireland (but I’m open to correction).
