North Central Area City Neighbourhood Awards

North Central Area City Neighbourhood Awards “Helping Us to Help You”

Councillor Larry O'Toole representing an tArdmhéara Críona Ní Dhálaigh, will present certificates to the participants and winners of the North Central Area City Neighbourhood Awards on Thursday 3rd September at 5:30 p.m in Parnells G.A.A. Club, Coolock Village, Dublin 17.

Dublin City Council proactively sought participation in this contest from all the citizens, schools, businesses and many previous entrants of the North Central Area.  The essence of the competition is the local residents and businesses working in conjunction with Dublin City Council to improve their area with the motto “helping us to help you” being at the core of the whole event.  

“I am delighted to acknowledge the great work that all participants of this competition have done in their local area. It is wonderful to see such pride in our city, with great efforts being put in by our residents, schools and businesses alike” said Councillor O'Toole.  

The winners of the North Central Area City Neighbourhood Awards will qualify for the city wide competition which takes place on 24th September in Croke Park.

Dublin City Council wishes to thank the Member First Credit Union, Artane and T.P. Whelehan, for their continued support in co-sponsoring the local competition.
