With Christmas just around the corner, the festive buzz was electric in The Liberties.  The Computer Clubhouse off Rainsford Street presented a Christmas showcase on Monday 13th December. 

The showcase incorporated the theme of ‘homelessness’ with projects  made by the Clubhouse kids.  Set designs, story boards and movies were on display for all guests and families of members to see. 

A fantastic vibe reverberated through The Clubhouse with Christmas sing-a-longs a plenty and a very special guest.   Glen Hansard of The Frames and Oscar winner officially opened the new music studio in The Clubhouse.

Manager Janice Feighery was delighted with the turnout which included RTE.  A representative and guest from The Simon Community was very impressed by the projects.  She said the kids “got what being homeless means” and how difficult it is getting back into a normal life.  She added the storyboards really captured that difficult transition.  The Simon Community feel Dublin has a big problem with homelessness.

Amid the activities two junior mentors were introduced, David and Kelly who were a bit shy at the introduction of what they had achieved.   Towards the end, Glen Hansard belted out The Auld Triangle with the kids and guests.  A great Christmas event in the heart of The Liberties; a positive end to 2010.
