Circle VHA in partnership with South Dublin County Council and Foróige celebrate reopening of Deerpark Community Centre following significant investment.
In November 2021, we officially re-opened the refurbished Deerpark Community Centre in Tallaght Dublin 24, following significant investment. A jointly funded project, in excess of €35K investment, by Circle VHA and South Dublin County Council and in partnership with Foróige, to deliver an upgraded community centre for the residents of Deerpark Estate.
South Dublin County Council Mayor Peter Kavanagh, alongside John Hannigan CEO of Circle VHA and representatives from youth group Foróige were on-site for the cutting of the ribbon event to officially open the centre to its community members.
“The community centre at Deerpark wasn’t being utilised to its potential and it needed significant investment to upgrade its facilitates and amenities and to deliver a space that is welcoming for the whole community. The upgraded centre now plays host to a communal space that can be used to host projects, groups and activities, alongside offices for our team at Circle VHA and SDCC to have a base in the community where we can better integrate with residents. The re-opening of the community centre is the first steeping stone as a focal point for our planned upgrades to Deerpark and our investment cements our commitment to delivering ‘More than Housing’ to Circle VHA residents.”John Hannigan, CEO, Circle VHA
