Echo Year in Review: August 2022

THE final month of a summer was a busy one around the county, with local sports clubs and communities holding celebratory events at the end of the sunny season.

The issues with changing bus routes in Ballyfermot under the BusConnects project rumbled on, with some residents expressing concerns the scheme could lead to bus services being withdrawn.

However, Anne Graham, CEO of the National Transport Authority said she rejected this “accusation”.

Local politicians Cllr Madeleine Johansson and Paul Murphy TD led a protest outside the office of the Minister of State with responsibility for Local Government, Peter Burke TD.

Data centre protest

The protest was held after Minister Burke instructed the council to remove a moratorium on data centres from the County Development Plan.

Happy days for St Mark’s in August

St Mark’s GAA Club in Tallaght received a national award for promoting mental health in the community as part of Lidl’s One Good Club initiative.

Jobstown Community Centre celebrations

A talent show and awards ceremony was held in the Jobstown Community Centre to cap off another successful year for Yemi Ojo’s Social Inclusion Summer Camp.

Sister Shed launched

A Sister Shed was launched in the Belgard Community Centre, with the aim of the group being able to empower women and help them develop new skills and friendships.
