It is our intention to hold this the 98th Christmas Day Dinner for the poor and homeless, at the RDS this year.
Simultaneously, the Knights of St. Columbanus will also dispatch some 3,400+ pre-prepared Christmas dinners and goodie bags from the RDS as they have done for many years. These meals are collected and delivered to needy homes by partner charities such as St. Vincent de Paul, Alone, Age Action, Simon, Dublin City Council, McVerry Trust, and others.
Over the last 98 years, the Knights of St Columbanus have provided Christmas Day dinner to over 3,400 people through sit down meals and a home delivery service for the homeless and those in need in our community. This has been possible by the valuable contribution and assistance of over 250 volunteers and the financial support of generous donors.
While social distancing and government guidelines are being vigorously followed, all arrangements are subject to changes in accordance with evolving Covid- 19 measures.
