Local Clondalkin Councillor and committee chairperson Francis Timmons commented ‘’Sadly we can’t meet in person so the only safe option is to have the show online for 2021 , We have had to cut some categories out but there is still loads for people to enter , I look forward and am hopeful that the show will return to Newlands Home and Garden centre and Áras Chrónáin in 2022. This show is an opportunity to showcase all the wonderful skills we have in South Dublin’’
