Vision of Skerries Community Association

The following vision was devised and agreed by the Directors of Skerries Community Association in March 2003.

 We want to:

  •  Safeguard and enhance all that is good about our community and environment
  • Support local effort to get the best quality of life possible from the community and environment
  • Foster community spirit i.e. appreciation, care of, pride in our community and environment


All who live in, work in or visit Skerries now and future generations

We will do this by:

Initiating, facilitating, communicating with and supporting customer groups in a professional manner

  • organise ourselves effectively and efficiently;
  • we are adaptable and approachable, willing to learn and share our knowledge with others;
