The Annual South Docks Festival Gets Underway
The new Lord Mayor of Dublin, Paul McAuliffe, got the vibrant celebrations of the South Docks Festival underway today at Sir John Rogerson’s Quay. Joined by members of the local port community and Dublin Port Chief Executive, Eamonn O’Reilly, the annual festival took to the waters of Dublin Bay with a trip on board M.V. St. Bridget.
The South Docks Festival is run by the staff and volunteers at St. Andrew’s Resource Centre in collaboration with local communities around Pearse Street, Westland Row and City Quay. It is a celebration of community and heritage, taking pride in the identity inherent in the South Dublin Docklands area. The festival runs until Friday 19th July with activities, fun and games for all. More information can be found on the St. Andrew’s website
