An Taoiseach, Leo Varadkar, joined Vicki Casserly, the Mayor of South Dublin County, in Lucan today (25 June) to launch a new campaign – South Dublin Together – which aims to give advice and motivation to vulnerable and at-risk people living in the community in relation to COVID-19.
The initiative provides information on areas such as making masks and using face coverings while providing activities to keep active at home. Letters of support from children of Divine Mercy Senior School, Lucan to people who have been cocooning are also included.
In the coming days, South Dublin County Council will deliver 500 of the South Dublin Together care package to people as part of the South Dublin Community Response Forum to COVID-19.
Vicki Casserly, Mayor of South Dublin County, said, “I am delighted to launch the ‘South Dublin Together’ Mayor’s Initiative today with An Taoiseach, Leo Varadkar. COVID-19 is still having a major impact on our County and our country. But the way in which citizens in our County have come together as we have had to stay apart is a source of great encouragement for us all. I wanted to end my term as Mayor by giving back to those who have sacrificed so much to help us get to a place where we can look forward in hope.”
