Help shape the future of the Rathmines Area
We are a group of residents from Balmoral, Fishing Point and Rathmines, who are working together to create a more sustainable Rathmines Area.
A strong, connected and resilient neighbourhood where we care for our natural, historic and cultural assets and enjoy a safe, active and friendly lifestyle.
Following the completion of a community survey in 2015, and community workshop in April 2016, we have now completed our Sustainable Neighbourhood Action Plan (SNAP).
We are working on a number of community projects, including reducing litter in Rathmines Park, and establishing a community garden.
You are invited to join our group, and get involved!
Come along to one of our upcoming events, attend a monthly meeting, bring your ideas for a more sustainable Rathmines area, or just join the email list to stay up to date.
We look forward to meeting you soon.
Join us for our regular meetings:
3rd Wednesday of the month
5.00 - 6.30pm
Catalina Function Centre, Dorrington Road, Rathmines
Please RSVP email@example.com.
If you can't make the meetings, but would like to be involved, please contact us to be added to the email list and kept in the loop.

A survey of school children in local feeder schools was conducted by the Group in 2017 to determine what the children would like to see in Rathmines Park. The intention was to use this information as an input to the upcoming Rathmines Master Plan.
The summary from this survey has now been compiled and you can read it by clicking here.
ANTI-SOCIAL BEHAVIOUR IN RATHMINES
As a result of a meeting with Council, Tony Ellitt, the Community Planner – Youth & Safer Communities, suggested producing cards and flyers with phone numbers for contacting Police and Council when anti-social or criminal actions were seen to be taking place.
These have now been produced and places are now being arranged for these to be available for you.
