Here is a 10 minute show of memories of the last 10 years of the Harold’s Cross Community Festival. Photos of the concerts, plays, poetry sessions, lectures, art exhibitions, children’s games, children’s drawings, Dublin Sketchers, pop-up gaeltachts, all sorts of entertainment, volunteers volunteering and much, much more
Some people saw this during the festival this year, but it has been changed since to add in some pictures from this year’s festival and other items.
Tá roinnt pictiurí ón Lá Spraoi a d’eagraigh Glór Mológa ann. Mar shampla Crann na Bealtaine – bhí sé ann an chéad bhliain agus tá sé ann i mbliana arís agus páistí Scoil Mológa á n-úsáid ina rince. D’fhás an Fhéile ó bhliain go bliain ach d’fhan an fhís mar an gcéanna i gcónaí – tacaíocht a thabhairt do mhuintir na h-áite.
When the people from the National Museum came to Harold’s Cross in May 2019, a short film was made. You can view it here:
In a recent event, Tony and Eileen McDermott were awarded for their contribution to the community. This achievement was featured in the recent Newsletter.
Here are a couple of pages from the recent newsletter explaining the background of the festival which celebrated 10 years.
The Festival will take place in Harold’s Cross during the week of 13th May – culminating on sunday 19th May.
The Autumn edition of the Harold’s Xpress newsletter is out now.

Meet at the Top of Harold’s Cross Park at 9.45 am on Saturday the 20th of October.
The Tidy Towns team has postponed the “Autumn Clean-up Morning” for a week due to the awful weather forecast for Saturday morning. The Clean-up will now take place on Saturday, October 20th. The arrangements are to meet at the main gate to the Park on Harold’s Cross Road at 9:45am when teams will be dispatched to eliminate weeds and other unsightly material along the road from the Bridge to the Mount Tallant junction. Gloves, pickers, hoes, shovels, wheelbarrows, bags etc. will be supplied. It’s a family event and a fun & positive way to join the neighbours and “give a little back” while improving the village. It’s scheduled for 2 hours but whatever time you can come for is very much appreciated. The attached photo shows the happy crew preparing to set off at a previous Clean-up!
This should take from 10 am until about 1 pm but if you can just spare a half an hour or an hour, that’s fine too – every little helps. Just wear comfortable clothes.
When we’re finished, DCC will come along and take away all the bags – this can be very satisfying. In the photograph you can see a group of satisfied Cleaners from a previous clean-up.
