Community spaces

We continue to enhance the cultural life of Fingal, and encourage participation in and access to the Arts, through our two Arts Centres, Draíocht and Seamus Ennis Centre. We also have a wealth of community facilities available to all our citizens. 

Draíocht is a multi-purpose Arts venue, in Blanchardstown, Dublin 15, offering theatre, dance, contemporary visual arts and community education and outreach programmes. Draíocht is now a vital part of the expanding and diverse cultural life of Dublin 15.  For further information please see  www.draiocht.ie

Fingal Age Friendly Facilities

Fingal County Council signed the Dublin Declaration on Age Friendly Cities and Communities, a World Health Organisation Initiative in 2011 and proceeded to develop an Age Friendly Strategy 2012-2017. Fingal Age Friendly Facilities is an initiative that commits Fingal County Council to letting older people know that we value their contribution to our society and that we are committed to serving them.  The project establishes our community facilities as Age Friendly and in doing so supports the development of practices that improve the experience with our community centres for older people.

Fingal Age Friendly Facilities is a natural progression for us as a local authority. Fingal Age Friendly Facilities targets the older sector of which there are 42,804 (Census 2011) living in the county of Fingal and which is constantly increasing. (Increased by 14% between 2006-2011)

It is vital for Fingal County Council to plan to meet changing needs as the population age profile of the county changes. Older people have an extremely valuable contribution to make to society and to their communities and it is important to facilitate this for the benefit of all.

Fingal Age Friendly Facilities grew from Age Friendly Ireland’s Business Recognition Programme and is an initiative that commits Fingal County Council to ensuring that older people know that we value their contribution to our society and that we are committed to serving them.  The project establishes our community facilities as Age Friendly Facilities and in doing so supports the development of practices that improve the active and healthy ageing experience within our community centres for older people. 

In every Local Authority community facilities play a hugely significant role in local communities where members can come together as a group to enjoy group activities, social support, public information and many other purposes that will with enrich the lives of citizens. They are a vibrant hub hosting activities that promote active and healthy ageing across all ages enriching people's lives and occupying their time with many activities that bring together large diversities of people from within the community.   Crèches, Classes, Meals on Wheels and other vital community services address social exclusion and diversity.

Fingal Age Friendly Facilities are places where older people may enjoy the best possible local facilities as they grow older. Fingal County Council firmly believes that it is important that older people should be able to live healthily and independently and be active participants within their own communities. This project is about empowering and enabling and above all it’s about facilitating older people to be active within and to benefit from our community facilities and in turn to support their own active and healthy ageing process.
