BROUGHAN CONGRATULATES NORTH EAST WINNERS OF CITY NEIGHBOURHOOD AWARDS1 Oct 2010
Dublin North East T.D. Tommy Broughan has warmly congratulated all of the winners of the City Neighbourhood Awards 2010 on what was an outstanding night for North East community and residents’ associations.
Deputy Broughan attended the awards ceremony in Croke Park this week where Dublin North East groups won across a wide range of categories.
Ard Na Greine Residents’ Association once again won their category for Residential Areas of 300 plus; Raheny won the Best Mixed Used Street award and came second in the Best Urban Village category; Donaghmede Estate Residents’ Association and Newbrook Road won second prize in the Best Community Environment Initiative; and Rathmore Residents’ Association won second prize in the Residential Area 1-150 category. Millwood Senior Citizens’ were also nominated in a number of important categories.
“The 2010 City Neighbourhoods awards ceremony was an incredible night for Dublin North East community and residents’ organisations who yet again performed exceptionally well“, said Deputy Broughan.
“All residents of Dublin North East should be deeply proud of the terrific work of these volunteers and community leaders who are the unsung heroes of our communities”, continued Deputy Broughan.
“I would also like to pay tribute to all of the residents’ associations and their colleagues who couldn’t make it to the awards ceremony but who carry out Trojan work on an ongoing basis to keep our local estates in such good condition. Ard Na Greine Residents’ Association, Donaghmede Estate Residents’ Association and Newbrook Road, Raheny, Millbrook Senior Citizens and Rathmore Residents’ Association work tremendously hard to keep the local environment clean and pleasant. The awards are due recognition of this work that happens on a daily basis and which can be easily be taken for granted as we pass by well kept green areas, flower beds and tidy streets“, concluded Deputy Broughan.
