Brendan Sherlock – our Community Person of the Year

Congratulations are due to Brendan Sherlock, one of the Directors of the Skerries Community Association and a long-standing & very active volunteer, for being the recipient of a Fingal County Council Community Person of the Year Award recently.

Apart from his involvement as a Director of the SCA, in our tree-planting committee Crann Padraig, and now the new Age Friendly Skerries Committee, Brendan is an active member of the Loughshinny Motorcycle Supporters Club and the Skerries representative on the Fingal Community and Voluntary Council.
