An tArdmhéara Críona Ní Dhálaigh, will present certificates to the participants and winners of the South Central Area City Neighbourhood Awards on Wednesday 2nd September in Dublin City Council’s Bluebell Youth & Community Centre, Bluebell, Dublin 12.

Dúirt an tArdmhéara Ní Dhálaigh: ‘Tá fíor-áthas orm bheith anseo in bhur measc inniu ar an gCloigín Gorm.  Mar a deir an seanfhocal ‘ní neart go cur le chéile’.  Gan dabht, is mór an difear a dhéanann sibh do shaol an phobail áitiúil agus do shaol na cathrach leis an obair iontach seo.  Déanaim comhghairdeas libh inniu agus go n-eirí go geal libh san am atá le teacht.’

An tArdmhéara Críona Ní Dhálaigh said ‘I am really delighted to be with you today in Bluebell.  As the saying goes, strength comes from working together.  Without doubt, you have made a difference to the community and to the city with your work.  I congratulate you today and wish you well in the future”

Dublin City Council sought participation in this contest from all citizens, schools and businesses in the South Central Area.  The Awards are about local residents and businesses working together to improve their area with the motto “making Dublin a great place to live” being at the core of the whole event.
