Lord Mayor of Dublin Caroline Conroy today officially opened a new community facility at Newcomen Court, North Strand, Dublin 3. She was joined by members of Dublin City Council’s Central Area Office and the North East Inner City Initiative
This former Senior Citizen Complex has been developed into a well-designed community hub including garden space, opening up infinite opportunities and potential for the residents of the area to build on existing community engagement as well as promote greener and sustainable living in an urban setting. The facility will serve the wider community including the Mud Island Community Garden Group, local residents’ groups, various community groups and Dublin City Council.
Lord Mayor Caroline Conroy said, “This community facility nestled in Dublin’s North Inner City will surely thrive with no shortage of individuals and groups enthusiastic to avail of this prized community space. Dublin City Council continues to work with the relevant agencies and residents in building relationships and amenities that fit community needs.”
Karl Mitchell, Director of Services, Dublin City Council added, “The North East Inner City is home to many different migrant communities each with their own vibrant culture which adds to the tapestry of Dublin’s Inner City community today. Providing state of the art community facilities like this one here at Newcomen Court is testament to the commitment of the City Council in bringing communities together where they can share not just facilities, but their cultures and values among neighbours and friends.”
The project is funded by Dublin City Council and the North East Inner City Initiative.
