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.

New Planting on Tyrconnell Road

Despite very heavy rain, a team of brave planters dug out a neat little bed on Tyrconnell Road and planted something to brighten up the grey summer. Many thanks to Alan at Inchicore Hardware for a free mattock to help break up the soil – which was hard at the time!

We will be planting a bit more in time but would ask if anyone is interested in helping, plant or maintain, to email us inchicoreenvironmental AT gmail DOT com

New fence erected to prevent dumping at Camac near Kilmainham Gaol.

There was good news on the dumping front. You may have noticed that near the South Circular Road/Emmet Road crossroads, there is a new fence at the advertising billboard. It is to prevent access to and dumping on the banks of, the Camac. They also cleaned up the bank of the Camac. This was directly as a result of representations made by the Kilmainham Inchicore Network through Aoife Hannan and a bit of nagging from us :). Hopefully this will deter at least the lazy dumpers at a very prominent spot visible to all going to-and-from Kilmainham Gaol. It is a good example of achieving small results just through raising awareness and making contacts. Not all issues will be as easily resolved but it’s reason enough to keep on plugging away. There are before and after photos attached.
