The Lord Mayor of Dublin launched this year’s Cherry Blossoms Festival in St Ultan’s School, Cherry Orchard on Wednesday, March 22.

Dublin City Council, Ballyfermot Partnership, Blue Door and a wide range of community groups have come together to create an amazing programme of free events for the month of April in Cherry Orchard.

“Nothing announces the arrival of spring time more than the flowering of the Cherry Blossoms trees, and it is a fitting time of the year for the residents and community groups in Cherry Orchard to come together and celebrate their thriving and blooming community,” said Lord Mayor Caroline Conroy.

The Cherry Blossoms Festival celebrates the work of residents who give their time and energy to improve the quality of life for the people of the area.

This year, local residents have organised play days, clean-ups, aalks and an international food fair, in addition to a community weekly big breakfast, ‘Open Mic’ nights for young people and some health and wellbeing events.

Events are free, but some may require advanced booking: https://www.facebook.com/DCCSCAREA.
