Recent Board and Staff Changes


In June Evelyn Hanlon, our founding chairperson informed the Board that she would be resigning as Chairperson of the Law Centre. Evelyn was instrumental in establishing the Law Centre and had a great vision for how the Law Centre could address unmet legal need in Ballymun. The Board would like to acknowledge Evelyn's invaluable contribution over the past fifteen years.

Evelyn's successor is Catherine Hickey. We would like to congratulate our new Chair and wish her every success in her new role.

In June Dr. Olivia Smith also resigned her position as a Director. Olivia regularly contributed to the Centre's Community Legal Education Programme in addition to her work as a Director and we really appreciate her contribution to the Law Centre.

We were sorry to say goodbye to Trish Flynn our Finance and Administration Manager who left the organisation at the end of July to take up a new role. During her long association with the Law Centre, Trish developed a range of services to meet the needs of the community in Ballymun and ensured that the Law Centre was sustainable. We are very grateful to Trish for her work for the Law Centre and we wish her well in her future career.
