unwrapped '22


A Gift … celebrates the custom of gifting during the winter festivals.

A Gift …is; a gift of joy, a gift of fun, a gift of peace, a gift of celebration and a gift of welcome

Our festival this year acknowledges that many residents of Tallaght Cross apartments are in their first homes and reminds us that other residents like the Ukranian refugees and other asylum seekers at Tallaght Cross Hotel have temporary homes at this time.
