Our next canal clean-up is one with a difference! Afterwards, we have been invited to have our cup of tea – and maybe something stronger – and maybe a nibble of something at the newly opened Rascals Brewery in the Goldenbridge estate. They just opened a brewery and restaurant and event space.
So the plan is: meet as normal at the BERA hall 9.45 and then work up towards the other end of the canal and then around 11.30-11.45 or so head down to Rascals just down Tyrconnell Road.
Our last cleanup
We had a great clean-up joint effort with our colleagues in Kilmainham Environmental Group. It started at the Dublin bikes and people soon spread out in all directions up into the Bulfin Estate, up Emmet Road and and into Kilmainham. The group were treated very well by the staff at the Patriot’s Inn. Thanks to all who took part. Some photos attached which show Inchicore and Kilmainham locations!
Climate change and IEG
We got a great response to our proposed Climate Change community of interest. A mail will be going out shortly to those who replied and hopefully we’ll have a few things to share with you over the coming months.
BERA Hall has a Christmas Fair on November 25th

Putting Inchicore on the Cultural Map – please reply to us if you are interested in attending a workshop
See below from Kate Chandler about organising a quick workshop to Inchicore on a cultural map of Dublin
I’m emailing you from the Dublin City Council Culture Company to invite the Inchicore Environmental Group to get involved with a project called ‘Heart of the Village’ – a chance to literally put your neighbourhood on the map!
The aim of Heart of the Village is to gather statements from different groups across Dublin that summarises what lies at the heart of your neighbourhood.
The plan is for these statements to be shared on an online cultural map of Dublin, to show visitors to the website what your community is all about.
If possible, I would love to organise a Heart of the Village workshop with the Inchicore Environmental Group.
Typically the session is about forty minutes of chat, and we work together to create a statement that best reflects your community. We come to you, help facilitate the chat, and in the end we have a statement on what’s at the heart of your village.
Let me know if this is something you would be interested in, or if you have any questions.
Below is a link to our website which will give you further information about the Cultural map, and the other projects we are working on throughout the city including Dublin’s Culture Connects, Culture Club and The National Neighbourhood.
Many thanks, and best wishes,
Dublin City Council Culture Company

At 7pm on Thursday November 15th in Richmond Barracks Common Ground will present the project HARD / GRAFT with artist Seoidin O’Sullivan and a panel of speakers that include Professor Gerald Mills and Mary Forrest from UCD.
WHAT IS HARD/GRAFT? A sustainable community orchard proposed for community sites across Dublin 8 that is in tune with the seasons. Seoidin O’Sullivan, began HARD/GRAFT in 2017 while she was based in studio 468, St Andrew’s Community Centre, Rialto Dublin 8 as part of the studio’s CITIZEN ARTIST awards. During her time in the studio Seoidin worked with local groups and residents resulting in 80 grafted heritage apple trees from UCD Lamb-Clarke Collection. These trees are currently housed in local community gardens in Rialto for planting across future Dublin 8 orchard sites including Dolphin House Flats Complex.
