The Skerries Community Association Ltd. was incorporated on the 3rd of May 1984. It has seen many changes since those early days but among its many stated objectives, the core objectives remain the same:
1. To develop and improve generally the town of Skerries and its neighbourhood for the benefit of the people of Skerries herein referred to as the Community.
2. To increase the attractiveness of Skerries for residents and visitors.
3. To secure the preservation of any natural view, park, historical monument, interesting landmark or ruin in the vicinity of the town of Skerries.
4. To act as the representative body of the Community and to establish such local assembly, community council or other body as may be required by Law for that purpose.
Membership of the SCA is open to all residents of Skerries once they reach the age of 18 years. Each year the AGM of the SCA reports on the activities of the company through the Chairperson's address. The AGM is also presented with the financial performance of the different groups within the company, and at the AGM the member’s elect/re-elect a third of the Board of Directors of the company. The SCA Board consists of 15 Directors who meet monthly to progress the business of the company and respond to issues emerging and initiatives within the community. The Board meets in January of each year to set out strategic aims and objectives for the company for that year.
Over the years, fulfilment of community objectives has led to the formation of a number of committees and groups under the umbrella of the SCA and this year we have 11 groups/committees running hugely important facilities, projects and events that enhance the quality of life for us all. These groups include the Board of Management team in the Community Centre, Skerries Tidy Towns, Skerries Town Twinning Association, Skerries Cycling Initiative, Skerries Soundwaves, Sustainable Skerries, Skerries Bathing Water Quality, Skerries Ras Stage End Committee, Little Theatre Upgrade Committee, Guerrilla Gardeners & Thursday Club and Skerries Save our Shores Group.
The SCA owns a number of assets for its members, these include the Old National School known now as The Little Theatre which was given to the association by its former owners the Dublin Diocese of the Catholic Church. The SCA does not own the Community Centre or the All-weather pitches but has a licensee arrangement with Fingal County Council to manage and operate these facilities for the benefit of the community. Projects to enhance and improve these facilities result very often from a number of SCA groups working together with FCC to deliver the desired outcomes.
The members of the current Board of Directors are:
John Coleman, Berniann Condon(Hon. Secretary), Mary Conway (Hon. Treasurer) Hugh Halpin, Jane Landy (Chairperson), Dee Langton, Ciara Leonard, George McCormack, Rachel McGloughlin, Joe McGovern, Frank Mc Keown, Peter O'Connor, Martin Russell, Brendan Sherlock, Ernestine Woelger.
