Cleanup Village – This Saturday November 4th 10am, planting, other news

Hello all,

Apologies for the lack of contact and cleanups over the last while. We were going to do something on last Saturday week .October 21st but Storm Brian looked imminent so we decided against it.

We;re going to do a cleanup of Inchicore village this Saturday meeting 10am at the Workman’s club. we will have a cup of tea in the Black Lion afterwords – say 11.45 or so
Bags and pickers hi vis and gloves will be supplied but if you have your own gloves and they fit you like a glove, do bring them.
Ann, Mairead and Gerard from the group are also going to do some work replanting on the beds we maintain but we need another few people to join them so if you would like to do a bit of gardening and can make it on Saturday please let me know. Best to bring your own tools as well just to be on the safe side. Ideally we need about three more people.
In other news:
Kilmainham Inchicore Musical society are having their production of Anything Goes this week, starting tomorrow night at the Inchicore College of Further Education. Details in the attached.
Also the Tidy Drimnagh group are having a cleanup on Benbulben Road on Saturday as well They are meeting at 11.30 am. If you’re living in Drimnagh or have friends there who’d like to get involved in the group, do contact them at the cced address for more details. They’ve also joined with us to do the canal this Autumn which great cross border teamwork!
We will be in touch again about a meeting at the end of the month to discuss the group’s plans for the future.

Canal Cleanup this Saturday 10am meeting at the BERA Hall

hello all,

We will be having a canal cleanup this Saturday morning, meeting at 10am, just to get the place looking nice for the Street Feast the following day. The weather forecast isn’t great but – unless it’s Biblical – if we can even do a small amount around the hall that would be great.

We will meet at the BERA Hall at the top of Connolly Avenue.

Bibs, pickers, bags, gloves will be supplied – Although if you have your own bring them along.

A New baby and toddler morning at BERA Hall: Little BERAs!


A few local parents are in the process of organising a weekly baby and toddler morning from 10-12 on Thursday mornings, for 0-4 year olds, in the Bera Hall. We have a limited number of spaces for insurance reasons so we’re asking interested families to sign up via their website here: They hope to be up and running by June 15th.

If anyone has any toys or other equipment such as mats, bouncers or high chairs they no longer need they would very much appreciate them. They will be holding a collection in the BERA Hall on Sunday June 11th from 2-5 when the street feast is on if you’d like to drop them off then, or if that date doesn’t suit you can email  and they can make arrangements.
