The Community Council
The Community Council was originally set up in 2007 when a significant number of sites had become available for redevelopment. As residents of the locality we wished to be proactive in the redevelopment process and to serve the community by improving the delivery of community services and facilities, encouraging positive citizenship and encouraging educational and cultural events.
To that end, since 2009 we’ve had a community festival every year in May which includes Children’s Carnival, Music, Art, Literature, History and Walking tours.
We have also had very successful Light up the Tree events since 2014 in Harold’s Cross park.
In November 2013, Harold’s Cross won the Cities Category of the 2013 / 2014 All Island Irish Public Bodies Pride of Place Competition. The organisation of these events has meant a growing number of residents from all over the Harold’s Cross area volunteering and getting to know their neighbours better.
