Well done to Drimnagh man Daniel Burke for getting nominated under the category Children & Young People of the Ireland Involved Awards. A while ago,  I posted a piece from one of the local newspapers the Southside People about a positive news story athe

Daniel Burke is 20 years old and sits on the adult committee for Drimnagh Club 4U.  Daniel joined the club as a junior crew member aged 16 and from day one has committed himself 100% to developing the club.

Daniel is on the events committee and has organised variety shows, youth discos and weekend trips for the young people. Moreover, Daniel has formed a vital link with the elderly in the local area, the local church and Crumlin Hospital. His aim is to also promote alcohol and drug awareness.

This has made a significant impact on the Drimnagh Club 4U. Daniel is a role model to young people. Daniel’s focus is on the positive attributes of the local community. Daniel works hard at disassociating Drimnagh from the negative images portrayed in the media. He is intent on highlighting the good work of the young people in Club 4U. He has got the teenagers involved in working with the elderly in the local old folks centre. He has also helped establish a link with the Children’s Hospital.

Daniel is an outstanding volunteer. He is a confident and assertive young man and deserves to have all of his hard work recognized. His work with the local Garda Siochana, old folks home, children’s hospital and parish church ensure that Daniel is a vital member of the community and an outstanding volunteer.
