2019 Rathgar Garden Awards

Rathgar is very lucky to have wonderful front gardens as a feature of the architectural
design heritage of the area.
Originally established as a very competitive competition between keen gardners in the ealy
1970’s in recent years the committee of the Rathgar Residents Association changed the
format to that of Annual Awards in 10 categories recognising the efforts that residents make
in maintaining their front gardens.
The awards are made possible by the generous support of local business and the committee
of the Rathgar Resident’s Association would like to thank the following for their generous
sponsorship of the RRA Annual Front Garden Awards 2019:

O’Connell’s Pharmacy
