Stoneybatter residents sweep the streets

Dublin City Council is encouraging local residents across the city to take part in community clean-ups – and ‘Stoneybatter Pride of Place’ has joined in, gathering on a Saturday morning once a month outside the church on Aughrim Street.

Dublin City Council provides cleaning equipment such as bags, gloves and litter pickers, which can be provided on request. Also, arrangements can be made in order to have the bags collected by the Council at the end of a clean-up. 

“Over the years, the actions put in place to maintain an enjoyable neighbourhood have increased,” says Patrick Ryan, who moved to the neighbourhood in 2018, after living for ten years in Swords.

Ryan says he appreciates the Council’s encouragement. “Dublin City Council is taking more action about the environment. They want the locals to take part and organise their own clean-up groups,” he says.   

Stoneybatter Pride of Place is one of the area’s main community groupws and takes charge of the clean-ups in the neighbourhood.
