12 Correspondence from the Acting Chairperson of the St. Patrick's Festival pdf icon PDF 247 KB


The Members expressed their disappointment with the content and tone of the correspondence from the Acting Chairperson of the St. Patricks Festival in relation to the Committee’s request for Councillor representation on the Board of St. Patrick’s Festival. Dublin City Council provides a financial contribution of €398,000 per annum as well as significant additional resources for street cleaning, traffic management, etc. Considering the substancial level of public monies involved in the Festival, it was absolutely necessary to have democratic oversight and involvement on the Board.


Order: The Manager to write to the Minister and Acting Chair of St. Patricks Festival to convey the Committee’s views on the matter.
