A Note From Geraldine Dunne


Dear Friends,



I'd like to take this time to wish everyone a happy, safe and healthy Easter from all at Southside Travellers Action Group. (STAG).

I also need to say and shout out a huge thank you to all our staff and employees in STAG.

You all have done an amazing job in serving the community to the very best of your ability in these severe, unforeseen, unprecedented times and with restrictive access to our community members.


I am very proud of the 0 positive COVID 19 results, we have been receiving in relation to the COVID 19 pandemic, in our community in DLR/Rathdown since it began.

I Strongly believe that the continuous hard efforts, work,  information and daily contact from our staff and employees to our community members has played a  huge part in supporting us and our community to help support and flat line  the virus.

From where I stand, and the evidence I have and hold in relation to all the challenging work you’ve all done daily, both in a professional and personal capacity... has been overwhelming and second to none in managing the needs and the demands of the people in your family and community and under the pressures and also dealing with the high demands and requests from our government departments.


I acknowledge all of you for playing a heroic role in helping people to stay safe and in tune and aware with endless information and updates in the COVID 19 pandemic.


I want STAG‘s staff to be extremely proud and keep up the great work up in flat lining this pandemic..... You have made history in your own right and you all have kept and provided essential services to our community while keeping a distance and abiding by the rules of the HSE.

I know how hard it is for you all to stay away from family and friends, especially at this time of the year, but we are not out of the woods yet and we have a bit of a journey to go before we see the back of this virus

We can keep safe and beat this together, and we will, once we keep supporting, helping, minding and working towards the same goal. We will get back to normal in the near future. We are a strong supportive community and we will get each other through this pandemic together.


I hope you all remain to Keep safe and enjoy your Easter holidays with your family.


God bless.
