RICC 6th Annual May Day Parade
It was with great pride that we had a fantastic turn out to the 6th Annual RICC May Day parade this year. Our biggest yet! We were delighted to welcome the Dublin All Stars Marching Band and the Finglas Concert and Marching Band this year, and we thank them for their participation.

Also, sincere thanks to Dylan Clayton, Ger McGuinness, Darragh Connolly, Brennan’s Bread, The Sandymount Hotel, An Garda Síochána, Jennifer Betts, all the RICC staff and all the groups, organisations and individuals who marched and participated; we hope to see you all next year!

New Lord Mayor of Ringsend and Irishtown
We would like to congratulate Alice Foley, who has been elected as the new Lord Mayor of Ringsend and Irishtown. We would like to thank our previous Lord Mayor, Brian Betts, for his tireless work, and we have no doubt that Alice will continue on the fantastic work in the community and will add her own flair to the role.

RICC Supporting CRY
RICC held a benefit night in aid of CRY (Cardiac Risk in the Young) at Lillie’s Bordello on May 16th. The event raised some much-needed funds and created awareness of the fantastic charity, which we were very proud to be a part of. Ringsend Rock School recorded their first single, Eleanora, with proceeds from the sale going to CRY. The CDs are €5 and are available from the centre.
