Seomra Spraoi is an autonomous social centre. We are a collective of different people with different backgrounds and interests working together in co-operation with a common purpose, to create a non-comercial space with an atmosphere of tolerence and respect, and a sense of community.

The centre is run on libertarian principles and participatory democracy, it is independant of any political party, business etc. and everyone involved has an equal voice in deciding how it is run.

We’ve been at 4 Mary’s Abbey, just off Capel St (on the luas line) for 2 months now and although we’ve had lots going on, we haven’t really taken the time to stop and celebrate and show it off!
