loveclontarf.ie are proud to announce the start of our Local Heroes segment! We decided that we would begin to highlight residents who go above and beyond the call of duty in terms of giving back to their community!

Dave Gibson is a local man who, upon taking early retirement eight years ago, decided to dedicate some of his free time to keeping Clontarf tidy. A well known face in the community, you will regularly see Dave picking up litter around Clontarf as a volunteer.

The team at loveclontarf.ie have been impressed with his work for some time, and we decided that he needs to be recognised for it. We shot this interview with Dave recently on Vernon Avenue, asking him about what he does and why he does it.

We believe that Dave is setting a fantastic example for everyone in the community, from older residents to young children. His humble attitude and dedication to helping the community truly makes him a local hero.

Do you know another local hero? Is there someone out there who helps Clontarf in a special way? Why not let us know by emailing us at info@loveclontarf.ie? We're on a mission to highlight those who really make a difference to our community!
