Tallafest welcomes all ages and abilities to Tallaght

by Padraig Conlon

Tallaght Community Council’s volunteers are focusing on inclusion for this year’s festival that takes place on Saturday, 22nd of June in Tallaght village.

The TCC voluntary Social and Inclusion Officer Sinead Tighe is working with South Dublin Senior Citizens Club/55+ Club, Coach Approach and St Maelruains to design a space and programme that will enable all ages and abilities to enjoy Tallafest.

The Inclusion Hub will be located in a calm corner of the festival area on the historic St Maelruain’s parish hall and adjoining rooms.

The hub will have a sensory chill out area open all day, if anyone needs to take a break from the hustle and bustle of Main St and the Old Greenhills Road areas.

The activity programme of the day will include: (see chart below)

The hub is open to all to come in and take part in the activities or just enjoy the tranquillity of this very special, historic place in Tallaght on the day.

TCC are also looking for businesses/suppliers of resources and equipment that would be suitable to create the sensory hub at Tallafest to come on board.

If any group wish to register an interest in attending as a group, or wish to reserve places for the activities in advance, contact Sinead through Daniel’s Voyage Facebook page or tallaghtperson@gmail.
