Saggart Village Residents Association (SVRA) are delighted with the news that the Archdiocese has accepted South Dublin County Council (SDCC)’s bid on the site of the old St Mary’s National School, Saggart. SVRA’s recent campaign to keep the old St Mary’s National School for use as a community centre, which was supported so strongly by the local community, means Saggart Village has now secured a multi-purpose community centre which will benefit all in our community, for now and for future generations to come.
SVRA have been overwhelmed by the support of the community during this campaign and this result is a great tribute to community power!
The support of the SDCC Department of Housing, Social & Community Development has made the vision of a community centre possible. SVRA would like to take this opportunity to thank the following people for advocating on behalf of this campaign: Tanaiste Frances Fitzgerald, John Curran TD, Councillor Martina Genocky, Councillor Dermot Richardson, Mayor Gus O’Connell, Councillor Nicky Coules, Councillor Cathal King and Councillor Louise Dunne.
We look forward to the development of the community centre in the near future as a facility for all those who wish to use it. We look forward to providing you with updates about this. Here’s to a great future for our village.
