We are embarking on a "Team Conyngham Road Depot
- Local Communities" relations project, which we hope to see blossom over the coming months. The aim of this project is to
foster a more formal relationship between Team Conyngham Road and the local communities we serve. We will also include information
on our website from the communities we form relations with, so as to allow them the opportunity to communicate to
a wider audience in their own communities.
If you are involved in a not-for-profit local community
initiative, please feel free to contact us by phone, fax or email to have your community news posted on our website. Our first
community news item is from the Moorefield Environment Group (MEG) in Clondalkin. Thank you.
'Moorefield Environment Group' (MEG) is a totally voluntary group made up
of residents of Moorefield Estate in Clondlakin, Dublin 22. The aim of the group is to work towards
a socially inclusive community that works hard to improve the quality of life for all residents. I. Kenny
is added to the above list of committee members.
MOOREFIELD IS SITUATED TO THE RIGHT OF RONANSTOWN
In case you may have noticed already, the name Moorefield
is spelt Moorfield by South Dublin County Council (SDCC) and Moorefield by the residents.
There is a historic reason why the residents use the extra"e" in the name of their estate. The lands were once owned by the
Moore family and, as the residents claim, the estate should bear the name 'Moore' and not 'Moor' in the title. Some might
say it is "poetic licence" by SDCC to alter the name but the residents have a point in what they say so the web page
details will reflect the name that the residents wish to use.
The Moorefield Environment Group (MEG) is one of those
residents groups that do fantastic work for their local community. We, at Team Conyngham Road Depot, are only too pleased
to be allowed form a partnership with the group. We serve the local community and we feel it only right that we get together
with local communities so we can become part of the community.
Summer Projects, Youth Projects, Estate Refurbishment Projects, Tidy Town Projects...Need
I go on? MEG is involved in all of those projects for their community and not only that. They also liaise with SDCC
and various Government Departments on behalf of residents, such as Senior Citizens, so as to ensure that people's rights
are respected and entitlements achieved. I mean, is that not what is truly called REAL COMMUNITY SPIRIT. I would not be surprised
if people are knocking on MEG's door to find out how they achieve so much for their community.
If I make all their achievements sound easy then forgive me. I know that behind
all these achievements is a very hard working VOLUNTARY Committee of residents who put their hearts and souls into the
work they do for their neighbours. We, at Dublin Bus Conyngham Road, would like you to know that the committee, mentioned
above, have allowed us to help them in the past and we look forward to being able to help them in the future because we fully
endorse the community spirit that is 'Moorefield Environment Group'.
