Speaking after attending the inaugural Northside Pride celebration in conjunction with Dublin LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer) Pride Festival hosted by Artane Coolock Resource & Development Centre (ACRDC) last Wednesday
Cllr. Larry O'Toole said:
"I commend Artane Coolock Dev. Centre for hosting the event and all of the participants and
I am pleased that we live in more enlightened times when everyone's individual sexuality is respected. I was very impressed by the individuals who attended the event and spoke out bravely and marvelled at the celebration of Northside Pride in Artane; they said that they had lived in the area all of their lives and had endured homophobic bullying, name calling and verbal abuse for decades ."
