Darndale Together is a community focused initiative of Dublin City Council for the area.

The authority has assumed a central leadership role in tackling longstanding, complex and engrained issues in Darndale, Belcamp and Moatview.

It engaged Dr Jack Nolan, a retired Assistant Garda Commissioner, to undertake an in-depth review, engaging with stakeholders and residents.

This process resulted in the publication of a report, ‘Darndale – a long view of an enduring challenge.’

Arising from the findings of the report, organisations throughout the area come together monthly through what is known as the Darndale Implementation Oversight Group (IOG). It plans and charts positive progress for Darndale, Belcamp and Moatview.

The Darndale Together Community Representative Forum, also established following the Nolan Report, facilitates residents influencing improvements in safety, health, happiness and wellbeing.

The forum meets regularly to influence a Darndale Together action plan dedicated to the needs of local people.

Meetings take place on the first Wednesday of each month at 6.00pm in the Darndale Belcamp Village Centre Conference Room and all are welcome.

And the Darndale Community Safety Forum has been established to examine matters relating solely to community safety. It meets on a quarterly basis.

The Community Safety Forum promotes positive relationships between residents, Gardaí, Dublin City Council and local representative groups, to deal with safety and security issues. The website darndaletogether.ie and the #darndaletogether social media platforms, are the home of all that is good happening in Darndale, Belcamp and Moatview.

The site and social media channels offer you the chance to have your say, talk about what is important to you and suggest what can change.
