Staff Day Out/Team Building

Before new term started, we took some time out to visit the 14 Henrietta St. Museum and learned about the varied history of early Georgian Dublin in all its magnificence and how later the street became home to the infamous, overcrowded and grim tenements which blighted much of Dublin for around 2 centuries.

More about the 14 Henrietta Street Museum:

Afterwards, had a bite to eat at krewe restaurant on the recently pedestrianised Capel St.

A grim room which would have housed a whole family
A typical but basic meal
The more fortunate had some basic toys and prams
The very fortunate(!) staff outside Henrietta St

We are a community project operated by the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul, based on Mountjoy Square in Dublin’s North Inner City. We provide members of the local community with a vital stepping-stone to learning and development, safety and encouragement.

We have developed a wide range of programmes aimed at addressing the many needs of the community. We cater for over 500 members, who access 600 programme places each week.

Front Door Gets a Lick of Paint

Our front door needed some smartening up due to the regular wear and tear it receives. There were a few cracks and the paint was looking a bit tired. So Liam rolled up the sleeves and sanded it down, filled it in, added primer and a few coats of fresh paint with a lovelly gloss finish.

The door should be looking good for the next handful of years.

Not in the Best Condition
Gaps and Cracks Filled In
Primer and Sealer Applied

Looking Back at Last Year’s Ozanam Come Dancing (Part 2)

Read more thoughts from the rest of the dancers as they prepared for their performances.

Have you signed up for this year yet? Email or call (01) 874 2804 to find out more.

A sample of the thoughts:

Question 2:     What are you most nervous about on the night?

To be honest, tearing a hole in my fishnets. And Tiarnan dropping me!

(Ed: neither happened)

Question 3:     Do you have any funny stories from rehearsals so far?

Tiarnan calls me “Annette” when I get ratty with him. My alter ego, apparently.
