The children are enjoying them and the Hens are settling into their new home and have laid a few eggs already. More to follow – PICTURES HERE

Huge thanks Wilma for organising this.

ASTRO TURF JAMES’S SECONDARY SCHOOL – You will all have seen the railings at the end of our yard which are for the Astro Pitch which St James’s Secondary School have had installed. They are kindly letting us have use of this pitch and we are currently arranging time slots with them. Big thank-you to the Management & Staff of St James’s Secondary School.

ST KEVINS GAA PETITION – Kevin’s GAA club is having a difficult time convincing the GAA to allow them to maintain the land that they train on. They are actively trying to increase the size of the club and are keen to get as many children as possible from Dublin 8, playing hurling. Kevins are asking to be allowed to maintain this ground – they have a petition and have kindly asked we highlight this to our community – please consider signing this petition. PETITION LINK HERE


April 30th – 13.10 closure for all classes

May 7th to 11th – Midterm Break


We are a start-up campaign for a co-educational, multi-denominational, non-fee-paying secondary school in Dublin South West City with Educate Together patronage.  We are establishing a mailing list of people interested in this as a preference for their children’s education, in order to be ready to mobilise if a second-level school is to be established in Dublin South West City and formal expressions of interest are called for at short notice.
