The Expo Dubai


The Dalaradia Stain Glass Cross

Dalaradia are immensely proud to post some pics of The Dalaradia Stain Glass Cross which has been hosted at the Global Event entitled “The Expo Dubai” where 190 countries from across the world came together to promote sustainability, commerce and culture.
The window was made in 2016 by members of Dalaradia with renowned artist David Esler, it consists of 1100 pieces of stained glass in the shape of a cross and depicts the history of the Ulster Nation over several thousand years through Ten symbols and verse.
The pictures are from the Northern Ireland suite at the UK Pavillion, we look forward to this fantastic artwork returning to pride of place in The Whitehouse.
Details of the expo can be seen at:

Rathcoole CREW

Dalaradia are delighted to see the formation of the Womens Crew group.
It’s been a privilege working with the girls for several months now. Fantastic quality of workshops and civic engagements undertaken can only be positive contribution to our community.

Abbey Historical Society

Dalaradia thank the Mayor and council for hosting a reception today marking the end of the Abbey Historical Society.
After more than 30 years of volunteering which resulted in The Whitehouse being saved for future generations, we salute their sterling work and commit to continuing to maintain their legacy and the Whitehouse.
Abbey Historical Society donated £250 to Dalaradia volunteers to help in the running of the Whitehouse for which we are most grateful.
