New Samuel Beckett Green


FACE is pleased to announce the completion of the refurbishment of the Village Green – to be known as the Samuel Beckett Green from now on. The Memorials Committee in DLRCoCo provided a Valentia slate plaque to commemorate the area’s most famous resident, Samuel Beckett. His niece, Caroline, represented the Beckett family at a small ceremony to reveal the plaque on 13th April, the anniversary of her uncle’s birth.

Our thanks to Mrs O’Brien of the Foxrock Pharmacy for consenting to the plaque being mounted on the gable wall of her premises and for attending the ceremony. At our Mid-Summer Festival, which will take place during the weekend of 20th to 22nd June 2014, we intend to celebrate with you the completion of this project.
