The project was about supporting the completion of exterior works to upgrade and improve Roseanna Community Hall in Bohernabreena.
This hall is the focal point of community activities for the residents of this area in the Dublin mountains.
The hall opened in 1977 and has been the hub community activities since and it has served the community well.
The hall needed an external security system, exterior lighting was in poor condition, the landscaping needed to be upgraded and the parking facilities were very poor. The project also included the establishment of a peace garden which provides residents with a safe haven of tranquility and thought.
We are very happy to be part of this project and to help this community. The security system and the lighting make the residents feel safer- especially the elders and persons living with disabilities – and encourages them to get involved more, even in winter times.
By extending the carpark the Hall is able to welcome even more visitors at a time and the improved landscaping further enhanced this picturesque spot, hidden in the Dublin Mountains. The Peace Garden attracts all aspects of the community, giving them a quiet, tranquil place to escape from the noisy world, to focus on themselves and to find peace.
