Indeed, while there were several entries from the South Dublin County Council area Dominic’s Community Centre was the only entry to win.

According to Cllr O’Connor: “This winning entry is a community centre and serves the needs of the local population.

“This centre caters for the intergenerational needs of the area with a strong emphasis on pre-school and after-schools programmes and a wide range of activities for its active age groups, including the knitting and crochet group, computer classes, photography, men’s choir, table quizzes, craft classes and other activities.

“The commitment of the centre staff plus a positive attitude and sense of community and friendship is evident in a professionally managed resource centre.”

He said that he wished to applaud everybody involved at the centre which has gained an impressive reputation for its service to the local community.
