Darndale Community Fair is a window on local opportunity

Residents of Belcamp, Darndale and Moatview can enjoy a vibrant Community Fair on Wednesday May 15 at Darndale Belcamp Village Centre.

Running from 12.00 to 4.00pm at Village Centre campus, the event will showcase local services, supports and opportunities within the community. 

The Community Fair is organised by Northside Partnership’s Empowering Communities team in collaboration with Darndale Belcamp Village Centre.  

Northside Partnership is a development company working to improve the lives of people in north-east Dublin.

What promises to be a vibrant event will feature more than 30 exhibitors from educational, health, legal, youth, childcare and rehabilitation providers, amongst others.

According to Dr Jack Nolan, the chair of the Darndale Together Implementation Oversight Group, the event is the perfect platform to view positive opportunities.

“The Fair is a wonderful vehicle to learn about opportunities to make a really positive difference to life in Darndale, Belcamp and Moatview,” he said.

Geraldine Nolan, Empowering Communities Coordinator with Northside Partnership, stressed the value of empowering people to make positive changes in their own community. 

“We are really excited to bring together residents of Darndale, Belcamp and Moatview for a day of celebration and connection,” she said. 

“There are so many opportunities available in this community, but not everyone is aware of them.” 

The event will be opened by local young community leader, Maria Williams. 

“We invite everyone to join us as we celebrate the vibrant spirit and diversity of our community,” said Nicko Murphy, CEO of the Darndale Belcamp Village Centre.

“Together, we can create lasting bonds and empower positive change.” 

The Fair will also offer free refreshments and a free raffle with many prizes.
