Get ready to run, hike or sing at the dlr Festival of Inclusion which was launched last week.

DLR launched their Festival of Inclusion “Connecting Communities” to celebrate and promote the activities of community groups and volunteers in Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown.

This diverse festival will take place between October 6-14 with exciting events such as the Community 5k run, The Big Sing and The Mountains to the Sea Downhill Challenge, a spectacular family friendly community walk following the new route of the Dublin Mountain Way.

Cathaoirleach of Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown, Cllr Tom Murphy said: “The Festival of Inclusion has become a flagship event in the dlr events calendar.

“We hope to provide the public with opportunities to engage, participate, question and experience things which are unfamiliar to them, the outcome of which is that they are enriched, informed and more likely to take a proactive, respectful approach to living in a diverse and vibrant county.”

In addition to the numerous events, there will be the chance to visit the annual art exhibition at County Hall, which will display the tremendous work by dlr’s network of volunteers and community organisations who work hard to address disadvantage and marginalisation.
