Clontarf site transfer secures its future

The site has now been transferred and Corporation leader Dawn Casey said the ownership would support and add value to the benefits delivered by indigenous organisations based there.

‘The Indigenous Land Corporation has worked hard to ensure a smooth transfer of ownership under its legislated responsibility to acquire and manage indigenous-held land,’ Dr Casey said.

The Minister for Indigenous Affairs, Jenny Macklin, visited Clontarf last week and said the property would now be secured for future generations.

‘It is now operated as a multi-use campus which accommodates a number of major indigenous service delivery organisations involved in indigenous education, training, sport, health, arts and culture,’ the minister said.

She congratulated the Christian Brothers for gifting the land to the Indigenous Estate.

‘It is a symbolic and practical demonstration of reconciliation,’ the minister said.
