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.
A big THANK YOU to all the volunteers who made the Community Festival such a success last weekend. We are blessed to have such a wonderful Park at the centre of the community and so many volunteers making the Festival happen. It’s powerful to see so many locals enjoying each other’s company in the Park. Harold’s Cross take a bow !
