RICC May Day Parade 2013

The Annual RICC May Day Parade celebrated its 5th year in May and was as always a great success. Thank you to all those who got involved, marched, performed, raised funds, donated prizes, all our local groups, staff and volunteers who made the day colourful, fun and the place to be in Dublin 4 on the Bank Holiday. We are already planning next year’s parade so if you would like to get involved in any way please contact Barbara or Lorraine on 01 6604789.

Lord Mayor of Ringsend and Irishtown

RICC were delighted at the growing response to the election process of selecting a Lord Mayor this year. Revisited by RICC in 2009 originally as an informal, novel idea it gives us great pride that the title has returned to a system that utilises its title for the benefit of the community in all areas of business, community, groups, activities, individuals and local issues that pertain to the area of Ringsend and Irishtown.

RICC were delighted to welcome back Brian Betts as Lord Mayor for 2013/2014 due to his proactive involvement throughout the year and also for the work he intends to do. Brian was elected Lord Mayor through a committee consisting of RICC Management, local groups, organisations and volunteers based in the community, so should anyone like to be elected or indeed put themselves forward for the title for next year please contact Lorraine or Barbara on 01 6604789 before April 2014. Details of the complete selection process will be displayed on our website in the coming months.
