After over a decade of reliable service it is time to put www.bodenpark.com out to pasture. Our recently launched Facebook page will going forward be the go to place for any one interested in the activities of the Residents Association.
Thanks to everyone who has featured or contributed to www.bodenpark.com over the years.
Our next clean up is this Saturday morning 14/09/2019 at 10am. We are meeting on The Drive to tackle the seriously overgrown hedge on this road. All helpers welcome!
Meet at The Drive @ 10am.
Hi all – Buglers are holding a pub quiz next Tuesday night (the 27th) at 9pm.
A good few of us in Boden Park are heading along, and we would love to see some more residents there.
It’s tables of 4, with free entry. If you can’t make up a team, just email firstname.lastname@example.org your details (name & contact number) and we will try to put people together.
Hope to see you next Tuesday night!
Let’s Talk About Biodiversity is an amazing local event in a super location with great speakers – not to be missed. Tickets are selling out fast (EventBrite: Lets talk about biodiversity) but if you are interested in going email email@example.com as the relentlessly energetic Angela O’Donoghue of Ballyboden Tidy Towns (of which BPRA is a member) has reserved some tickets and a coach, and has said a few of these will be kept aside for the residents of Boden Park if we are interested. For a total of 20 euros you will be transported from outside Buglers to Orlagh House and back to Buglers and your admission is included. If you have not been to Orlagh House (seriously wow factor) – this is a lovely opportunity to not only see it but also to take part in a marvellous worthwhile event being held there!

At the recent AGM, the annual subscription was agreed at €20. Your local road representative will call shortly to arrange collection. Subs can also be paid electronically to AIB Rathfarnham, (BIC & IBAN are in the newsletter that you will have received through your front door in the last few days.). No subscriptions have been collected in recent years, so all funds will be gratefully received and put to good use. Funds permitting, we are hoping to hold a Sports Day in September and other events later in the year.
Once again, many thanks to those of you who turned out in May to clean the walkway. We had a super turnout, so we are planning another one! Our next clean-up is on Saturday the 20th July, from 10am to 12 noon. We are hoping to tackle the Scholarstown Road end of the walkway, leading back down to The Green. Meet at the open space between The Rise and The Avenue at 10am.
It is the middle of the Tidy Towns judging season and Longitude Festival is impacting on our area.
Ballyboden Tidy Towns are organizing a Tidy Town Meitheal (clean up crew) tomorrow Sunday from 10am till 12 Noon . This will also include their Monthly River Clean up of the Owendoher in association with the amazing Dodder Action. Meet up is at Ballyroan Boys National School.
If you can drop by for a little while even 30 mins that would be tremendous or perhaps during the week you might, if going for a stroll, with yr family or friends keep an eye out for litter & pick it up. If you can’t that’s fine too 😊
This evening, Ballyboden Tidy Towns are having a one hour tidy up or Meitheal on the Ballyboden Roundabout and the surrounding area. From 7.30pm to 8.30pm.
It’s really untidy and a lot of the plants are dead. Do u think u could help? The Gardaí have agreed to assist us with traffic so the quicker we can get it tidied the better. Even 20mins of your time would help. If you have any availability this evening I would be grateful. Regards Angela O’Donoghue
