Welcome to the website of Clondalkin Tidy Towns

 

Clondalkin Tidy Towns was formed in March 2012 with the help and support of South Dublin County Council. Our aim is to tackle the serious litter problem and to replace the weeds with flower beds and shrubs.

 

We now meet at the Entrance to South Dublin Civic Offices on 9th Lough Road (Opposite The Mill Shopping Centre/Garda Station) every Tuesday evening at 6.30pm Saturday and Sunday morning at 10am. Hi-vis vests, gloves, litter pickers & bags are provided. If you have a yard brush or spade please bring them along.

 

 

Volunteers Needed!

 

Would you like to help us, can you spare one or two hours a week to lend a hand and join a group of Clondalkin residents and business owners to clean up our Village.

 

Tell your friends, family and neighbours to come along and help us clean up Clondalkin bit by bit. Everyone is invited and we are hoping to see as many local faces as possible.


Join in and help out!

New Heritage Centre and Public Garden proposed for historic Clondalkin Round Tower

 

Clondalkin Tidy Towns have been working very hard over the last year on getting this project to its current stage. We are delighted that SDCC have now applied for Section 8 Planning Permission and we look forward to hearing the views of the wider public and business community. This project has seen representatives from a large section of our community come together and share ideas. We thank everyone for their input so far.

 

 

 

As part of its “Villages Initiative”, South Dublin County Council proposes to develop a project to refurbish and extend the attractive houses at 1, 2 and 3 Millview Terrace and at 15 and 16 Tower Road as a Visitor’s Centre and public garden for the historic Round Tower on the site. This is probably one of Ireland’s oldest and most significant Round Towers and sits at the heart of the village, only 12 kilometres from Dublin city centre. County Manager, Daniel Mc Loughlin said “This project has a unique quality in that it supports a broad range of objectives. It will eliminate dereliction, bring life and vibrancy to the centre of the village, give access to a national treasure and provide much needed additionally to the tourism experience on offer in the county”

 

The Visitor’s Centre will comprise of an interactive exhibition telling the story of Irish early-monastic life in general and of the history of Clondalkin in particular. The building will open onto a public garden recalling the monastic garden tradition and offering a tranquil setting for the Round Tower for the first time. The centre will include a bright café and terrace overlooking the garden and a craft shop supplied by a local design co-operative.

 

It is hoped to attract local and international visitors, enlivening Clondalkin village centre and boosting its retail and service economy and jobs. The public garden and café will provide an attractive amenity for residents of the village and its surroundings. The design has been developed in partnership with local community and heritage groups. No works are proposed to the round tower itself which is owned by the State. The vision for the site can be summarised as follows:

 

•To create a vibrant, high quality and accessible urban quarter in the heart of Clondalkin village.

•To provide a centre for learning and appreciation of the history and culture of Clondalkin and south west county Dublin.

•To contribute to the regeneration of Clondalkin village and to boost its economy.

 

Part 8 Planning Consultation will commence on Tuesday 20th May 2014 with documents and drawings of the proposed project on display in the County Hall, Tallaght, Civic Offices Clondalkin and in Clondalkin Library. Drawings and images of the scheme are available from the Architects Department of South Dublin County Council who are the designers of the project or visit our website at    http://www.sdublincoco.ie/index.aspx?pageid=939&pid=29731 for further information.
