New Drimnagh Forum

Over the last few months different groups from from Drimnagh attended various meetings with Dublin City Council in the Father Lar Redmond Centre. These meetings are hosted by the Dublin City Council officials  hosted by Dublin City Council.

It is believed that there are roughly 50-60 active groups in Drimnagh from sporting groups to dance groups to resident associations.

The aim of this new forum is to build a database of all the groups in Drimnagh & keep them informed of what is happening & what local decisions are being made on their behalf. It was agreed that the Drimnagh Community Network would be the forum for Drimnagh.
