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.
There will be – we think – Inchicore’s first street feast happening at the BERA Hall at the top of Connolly Avenue on Sunday at 2pm.
here are all the details
The BERA Hall is here:
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: http://littleberas.com/join-us/ 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 firstname.lastname@example.org and they can make arrangements.
From Laura Kenny,
Ballyfermot Area Office.
The Water and Communities office are looking to hold a public meeting to discuss the natural water ways within the Inchicore Kilmainham and nearby area.
This meeting is arranged for 27th June 2017, 7.30 pm to 8.30 pm at the Kilmainham Courthouse.
Would anyone be interested in attending this talk or speaking at it on the subject of the waterways of this area – either from an environmental or historical point of view. If there are any other groups in the area that maybe interested could you pass this onto them too.
there’ll be a poster on this later.
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

We had a record turn-out, a lovely spring morning and a huge haul. Thanks to Ken Murphy for being instrumental in organising it, to the BERA Hall for hosting us, to DCC and Ger Toner for the pickups and all our volunteers.

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.
team Dublin Cleanup
This Good Friday, the Team Dublin cleanup is taking place, run by DCC. We have no formal cleanup but I know that some volunteers will be doing a few streets around their area. If you want to do an hour or two contact Ger Toner (email@example.com ) or [firstname.lastname@example.org] and they will help organise bags and collection points.
