Welcome to the Community Affairs Section of the Dublin Airport website. At the DAA we have a strong commitment to the communities around our Airport and aim to work closely and actively with our local communities.
Using the links below you will be able to find specific information of interest to local communities, including a downloadable copy of our latest newsletter, information on Noise Monitoring and access to our onine Noise Complaints Form.
DAA has, for many years, been closely involved with various community projects and local sporting clubs in the Fingal area. The DAA is particularly proud to continue its long association with St Margaret's GAA Club and Naomh Mearnog GAA Club, Portmarnock, in supporting their sponsorship for 2009. We are also delighted to announce a new 2009 sponsorship programme with St Sylvester's GAA Club, Malahide.
DAA supports an ongoing education programme within the local communities.
Last year DAA reached over 300 students through the various programmes we are associated with.
DAA proudly supports a number of other initiatives including a letter-writing project with the Old Borough NS in Swords, and have welcomed a number of visiting school groups to Dublin Airport from within the local communities.
We are proud to enter our 15th year in our partnership with Junior Achievement. Since 1996 DAA has reached thousands of students in local schools, bringing work experience into the classroom. In 2010, 235 children from seven schools were taught Junior Achievement programmes during the school year. DAA staff volunteers linked up with schools including Darndale National School, St. Margaret’s National School and St. Colmcilles National School, to teach programmes such as ‘Our Families’, Our City’ and ‘The Economics of Staying in School’. On completion of their programme, the students visited the Airport where they viewed firsthand different roles in an airport environment as well as an insight into the operational aspect of our business.
Since 2004 we have enjoyed a long term partnership with St. Finian’s Community College in Swords, Co Dublin. Through ‘Business in the Community’, Ireland’s School’s Business Partnership initiative, DAA is proud to facilitate the ‘Skills@Work’Programme, teaming up with St. Finian’s Community College again for 2011/2012.
DAA has a long association with the Young Musician of the Year programme. In particular DAA (Aer Rianta) has enjoyed a 29 year relationship with the Malahide Young Musician and 22 years with the Swords Young Musician of the Year Competitions, which are aimed at encouraging young people to achieve their own potential and to enjoy making music. Since its inception, contestants of the Young Musician of the Year Competitions have progressed to develop successful careers in their chosen musical talent.
