ULSARA is 50

2018 is Ulsara's 50th anniversary. Started in 1968 as a response to the uncontrolled destruction that was threatening to raze the area, we salute and owe thanks to the courageous pioneers who founded Ulsara and kept it going through the decades.


Through 2018, we will be celebrating and remembering the campaigns, the successes and the odd setback from the past 50 years.


For updates, follow us on Twitter @ulsaradublin; look out for our newsletter in your letterbox in April; and do come along to our AGM on 18th April.

Better still, become a member.
