Fitzgerald Celebrates 30 Years of Citizens Information in Lucan

Local Minister, Frances Fitzgerald, helped celebrate the 30th birthday of Lucan’s Citizens Information Centre this week.

The facility, located in the Ballyowen Community Centre, has been providing information and advice to Lucan residents for 30 years now.

“Citizens Advice Centres are a hugely valuable service for any local community and we are luck to have in Lucan a team of highly experienced and competent community workers. Under the guidance and leadership of the national Citizens Information service, the Lucan Centre provides important information and advice to residents throughout this area,” said Minister Fitzgerald.

“It is so important that people are aware of their rights and entitlements and through their office and their publications, the Citizens Advice Centre endeavours to ensure that people are as well informed as possible,” continued Frances Fitzgerald.

“I was delighted to drop in today and help the staff celebrate their 30th birthday. I wish them every success as they continue their vital work in our community,” concluded Minister Fitzgerald.

Fitzgerald was joined by Cllrs. Emer Higgins and William Lavelle at the celebrations.
