After a number of months of deliberations, the eight working groups of the north inner city community coalition came together to present their draft proposals for Kieran Mulvey, who is due to report the situation in the North Inner city to an Taoiseach, Enda Kenny.

The energy that has brought all these community groups together, came out of what was a growing number of criminal fatalities. The Government stepped in to not only quash the gangland activities suffered by the communities of the north inner city but to question their roots and provide preventative measures to the communities who have seen little of the growth celebrated nationally from the most recent economic crash.
“THIS IS JUST THE BEGINNING”
…is the message of reassurance from the NICCC convenors. The convenors confidently assured the larger group that this is the first step in community-state engagement.
