The Harold’s Cross Community Council is delighted to be included in Dublin City Council’s Social Inclusion Week 2020.
The Christmas Tree Lighting (originally scheduled for 23rd November) has been cancelled due to bad weather.
Recently, a great little shop in Harold’s Cross which had all kinds of curios and antiques, closed down. Tom, the owner there, a gentleman and very knowledgeable, allowed Pearse McGloughlin and his brother Kevin to quickly drop in and record a version of a song called ‘Whiskey Tree’ before the closure. The song actually came out of some song-writing workshops Pearse was doing with a group of people experiencing homelessness, people who, for various reasons, had ended up in a pretty bleak place in their lives. The workshops also reminded Pearse of how music can be a source of solace for people.
We in Harold’s Cross are very sad to see the closure of Harold’s Bazaar.
