About Us – Beaumont Residents Association
Beaumont Residents Association (BRA) was formed in 1996 and is devoted to enhancing the quality of life for its Members and all the Residents of Beaumont. A suburb on the north side of Dublin city, Beaumont is located about midway between the city centre and the Airport, just east of the Swords Road / M1 Motorway.
Beaumont has a unique mix of Residential, Commercial and Hospital life and is home to one of Ireland’s largest Medical Facility – Beaumont Hospital. Non nationals and immigrant workers account for a significant and growing number of the residents of Beaumont and they live happily and in harmony with the local population.
Beaumont is becoming a multi-cultural community and Beaumont Residents Association reaches out to its immigrant neighbours and encourages them to join the Association and the committee so that together we can all learn from each other and better understand the culture, needs, problems and expectations of one another. BRA welcomes non-Irish and promotes diversity.
