Councillor Mary Hanafin, An Cathaoirleach, Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council held a Civic Reception to pay tribute to the contribution to the county of the Arts and Culture community. 

The reception was attended by Frank Curran, Chief Executive, dlrcc, local Councillors and Representatives, and artist of various mediums, including music, dance, theatre, film, literary, visual arts, history, and more across dlr. 

Speaking at the event, Councillor Mary Hanafin, Cathaoirleach of dlr, said:

“The artists of all disciplines in our community create worlds for us to escape to, be entertained in, and be challenged and educated by. They foster creativity among young people, engage the community, and encourage participation in older people. As well as having a positive impact on our lives and well-being, they also provide a major contribution to tourism and the economy of the county. They enrich the lives of the citizens of Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown.”

Frank Curran, Chief Executive of Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council said:

“dlr works to encourage participation in arts and culture across the County, from professional working artists to recreational youth and active retirement groups. The Arts Office supports the career development of hundreds of creatives and delivers nearly 70 projects and events each year and Library Services assist in curating dlr LexIcon’s cultural programme and manage the County’s Municipal Gallery. The Council’s partnership with communities, creatives and local and national stakeholders has led to success in cultural services and DLR aims to continue to develop a vibrant county that is attractive, inclusive, and accessible.”
