Kilmainham Inchicore Network is a unique community network
The Network meets monthly and works with the local community to facilitate engagement in the area.
KIN was originated by Dublin City Council, and as such operates a close working relationship with the Council.
Over the last five years, KIN has comprised representatives from local neighbourhoods, community organisations, statutory bodies, some local businesses, along with the DCC Local Area Manager and local elected Councillors. As needs arise subcommittees are formed to deal with various planning and programming issues.
From the outset, KIN’s primary function has been to facilitate inquiry and response to local issues – with an aim to advance a
stronger, more representative and initiative-taking organisation and community. To do this, KIN has undertaken considerable work in understanding Inchicore and Kilmainham’s distinct neighbourhoods
We have carried out significant research, interactions, and outreach with many local bodies, including schools, youth and community development organisations, residents’ associations, addiction services, specialist groups in childcare provision, services for the elderly, and local enterprise, commercial and service bodies.
