The Little BIG Book of Information

RBA Directory DesignWelcome to this very special Raheny Information booklet – a joint project between Raheny Business Association and Raheny Age Friendly, and funded by Raheny Business Association.

We have worked closely together over the past 2 years to implement the Raheny Age Friendly Action Plan.

One of the key findings from the extensive consultation process with residents, especially older people was the lack of one source for all local community information.

We don’t claim that this booklet is the definitive source for all local information but it is a start! Hopefully, if it proves successful we will build on it for the future. If you are involved in a local organisation that has not been included please let us know.

The booklet has been delivered to 8500 homes in Raheny and surrounding areas.

Please keep the booklet handy so that when you are looking for information on a local service, club or Business, you will be able to look it up and find it quickly and easily.

Raheny Business Association has 140 members who employ over 600 people in Raheny.

We encourage you to support Local Businesses, clubs, schools, organisations and associations. It is only with your support that they can thrive and grow.

If you can’t wait to see your book – you can download it here. Just click this link and enjoy.

All Saints Church Raheny, Concert and Music Project

Ardilaun Concert - Flyer-page-001All  Saint’s Church, Raheny, plans to mark the 100th anniversary of the death of Arthur Edward Guinness, Lord Ardilaun, with a concert by Irish Harpist, Anne-Marie O’Farrell, the UCD Choral Scholars and Organist and Traditional Irish Musician, Donna Magee. The concert will take place in the church on Sunday January 18 at 7.00 pm and will feature a varied programme from both traditional and temporary composers.

Arthur Edward Guinness (Lord Ardilaun) died on January 20 1915 at his home at St Anne’s, Raheny. A great-grandson of Arthur Guinness, founder of the brewery, Lord Ardilaun was a businessman, politician and philanthropist and is best known for giving St Stephen’s Green to the people of Dublin.

Lord Ardilaun also funded the building of All Saints’ Church in Raheny which was built on the grounds of his estate at St Anne’s and is regarded as an architectural gem in the Dublin Diocese.

The concert will form the backdrop for the launch by Minister of State Aodhán Ó Ríordán of a new Music Education and Development Project at All Saints’ aimed at enabling young people from north Dublin engage with choral and musical development.

Commenting on the concert and the development of the music project, the rector of All Saints’, the Revd Norman McCausland said:

“The concert marks the significant anniversary of the end of the life of Arthur Edward Guinness but the occasion also looks forward to the beginning of something new. The ‘Ardilaun Music Project’ will provide opportunities for choral development especially with young people while also engaging in a collaborative way with Traditional Irish Music performers and composers. This will be a major addition to the cultural life of north Dublin and we are delighted to make this contribution to the Decade of Centenaries”.
