The fund was designed to provide an opportunity for organisations to access funds for projects, providing significant community development, social inclusion and/or cultural and heritage enhancement.

Mayor Guss O’Connell met the successful groups in County Hall on September 22, and congratulated each group for making the county a better place.

The Mayor acknowledged the partnership between elected members, council staff and local community groups, which resulted in new and innovative projects and existing groups being supported.

Groups approved for funding include, CoderDojo Quarryvale, Clondalkin Equine Club, Irish Red Cross – Tallaght Unit, New Hope Residential Centre, Dodder Anglers Association, Clondalkin Tidy Towns, Tallaght Community Arts, Rathcoole Community Centre, Killinarden Community Council and Ballyroan Community and Youth Centre.
