Sphere 17

I recently visited Sphere 17 Youth Project in Darndale, Dublin 17. I saw the great work of two young people from the local area who took it upon themselves to clean up a pond in the Darndale park.

The pond is often used for fishing but there is an abundance of weed and rubbish thrown in made it next to impossible for anything to live there. The two young people organised clean up of the pond; contacted the fisheries board and Dublin County Council and have managed to raise a huge amount of awareness!

Sphere 17 on NearFMThey even appeared on-air on Near FM.

And that’s not all…

They got other people in the area to help with the clean-up too! It is a work in progress and there is still some weed to be cleared away, but now fish are once again living in the pond!
