Ballymun to celebrate 50th Birthday on 23rd July – Reilly

1 July, 2016

Dublin City Councillor Noeleen Reilly says she is looking forward to celebrating Ballymun’s 50th Birthday in July.

Speaking from Ballymun today, she said,

“I am really looking forward to the ‘Ballymun Birthday Bash’ in July.  In such a historic year it would be easy to forget that it is 50 years since residents first moved into the famous Tower blocks.

“In 2015, the last Tower block was demolished.  The landscape of Ballymun has changed so much in those 50 years.

“This is a unique opportunity to remember everything that is good about Ballymun and it will be a great occasion to bring everyone in the community together.

“I want to commend AXIS for coordinating this event along with Dublin City Council, Ballymun4Business and other local organisations.

“AXIS is one of the success stories of the regeneration and it is fitting that this is event is not only organised by them but it all takes place in front of the centre on the Plaza.

“There is already huge excitement in the community about the birthday bash.  Residents are looking forward to coming together sharing memories and creating new ones.”
