EUROPEAN NEIGHBOURS DAY

5th October 2016

Clanmil Ireland celebrated Neighbours Day 2016 on May 27th 2016 in Claddagh Park. All residents were invited to a party in the estate to celebrate Neighbours Day and to give resident’s an opportunity to get together and enjoy some time together in Claddagh Park.

There was plenty of food and drinks, face painting and balloon making for the children. The day was a great success and was enjoyed by all.

We hope to celebrate European Neighbours Day annually as it promotes a feeling of community and provides an opportunity for neighbours to get together and celebrate their estate as a place to live.

The building has been built to a very high specification and is a pilot scheme under the Government’s initiative ‘towards carbon neutral’ homes.

The commentary from the Judging panel was :

"An exemplar architectural, social and sustainable design for the provision of housing for people with disabilities.

Clanmil Ireland applied an excellent innovative approach to sourcing funding to achieve overall design objectives and successfully collaborated to ensure optimum outcomes for tenant well-being. The project is a real success from the point of view of all the stakeholders involved and it represents a good practice model that can be replicated for independent living in meeting the varying needs of people with disabilities"

Martina Smith, Clanmil Ireland Chief Executive, said: 'We at Clanmil Ireland and all of our residents in Valhalla are absolutely delighted to win this award. Valhalla is a great example of how innovation and good partnership working can make a real difference to tenants' lives and we hope to continue to provide homes to this standard for those in need in the future '

Valhalla, an independent living scheme, was officially opened today by Paudie Coffey TD, Minister of State at the Department of the Environment, Community and Local Government in the presence of the Mayor of South Dublin County Council, Cllr Fintan Warfield.

This development is a joint initiative between Clanmil Housing Association Ireland and south Dublin County Council.

Valhalla, located at Watery Lane, Clondalkin, provides homes for tenants with disabilities and able bodied tenants with care and support provided to individuals in their own homes as required.

Set in the centre of historical Clondalkin Village, this scheme harnesses the economic and social energy of the existing community to create a welcoming place for new tenants. The scheme is built on an infill site, which was acquired by South Dublin County Council. It has easy access to the bus corridor and Clondalkin Village. The development of this site has greatly enhanced the surrounding fabric and density of the village centre. The design and location of the project, and its integration into the community ensures the ease of professional and local support and maximises potential for both participation by tenants and development of outreach services and encourages interaction with the local community.

The building itself has been built to a very high specification and is a pilot scheme under the Government’s initiative ‘towards carbon neutral’ homes. All partners are delighted to be part of the provision some of the most environmentally friendly homes in Ireland.

In officially opening the scheme, Minister Coffey said:
“This magnificent facility here only became a reality through the vision and determination of so many people, giving freely and willingly of their talents and their time. There’s no denying that the capital funding assistance under my Department’s Capital Assistance Scheme was a key ingredient. However, when you harness all of these resources through leadership and drive, you can transform them into a powerful force for doing good.”

Johnny Murtagh, a resident said:
“It means a lot to me to live here because I can do a lot more that I could do before in my previous accommodation. I didn’t think I could move here in the beginning but would now like to advocate this type of housing for other people. Cheshire staff helped me a lot with the move. It’s great having my own place and lots of space, the neighbours and Clanmil staff are very kind. I talk a lot more than I did before. I’m very happy!”

Aaron Abbey, a resident said:
“Living in Valhalla has given me much more independence. Having the village right next door is a great advantage.”
