We won an award at the South Dublin County Council, Community Endeavour awards 2018. the Gradam Cultuir agus Oidreacht na hEireann, this is the heritage and culture of Ireland award.  So that’s a huge plus for the show, we were delighted to win this’’. Timmons added ‘’The 2019 show will be another two day event this year on the 29th June (Newlands Home & Garden Center) and 30th June (Aras Chronan) and this will be our fifth year since the revival of the great and very popular community-based event that originally ran for 30 years. There is literally something for everyone and both days will have balloon making, face painting, free demonstrations and music so there is something for everyone! Two family fun days’’. The local Clondalkin Cllr concluded ‘’This show is a chance to showcase what is great about Clondalkin and our wider county. This year there is no charge for Children’s entries and we are also running free Workshops in Lucan, Tallaght and Clondalkin Libraries for Children. We hope to announce other workshops soon in the run up to this event’’.
