Busy time for Cahir Tidy Towns

It’s getting closer to the serious part of the year for Cahir Tidy Towns!

It’s getting closer to the serious part of the year for Cahir Tidy Towns!

The local group has started to compile their entry form and there is lots to be included since last May.

The Cahir Tidy Towns Group is stepping up the pace in advance of the new season. Last year they had the library as their big project and also the extension to the Memorial Garden.

Chairman Andy Moloney has pointed out that the works to Cahir Abbey Cemetery are near completion and while this will probably not meet the deadline for this year’s entry it will be a jewel in the 2015 entry. The local group have worked hard to have it ready on time but final touches are proving a bit slower. The stonework of Kenna on the wall is a credit to him and Tidy Towns could not have completed this work without the help of TÚS with some generous sponsorship form Corbett Concrete. The Council will do repairs to the roadway approach to allow better access for visitors in this area in the near future.

The group will also include the Mill on their entry this year and would like to thank all those who contributed to the paint recycling project as well as St. Kieran’s FC for their help. To be in with a chance of being awarded ,ore free paint Cahir Tidy Towns need people to vote for the Mill on the Dulux Facebook page!

All in all it has been a good year and the entry should gain some extra marks for the town. Every year more and more people are getting involved and Andy says that there is a job for everyone and that the group will take every idea on board when it comes to town improvements.

The 2014 Town Competition will be launched this Wednesday, May 14, at 11am in Cahir House Hotel. Details of the competition next week.

Meet as usual on Wednesday at 7pm for litter and weeding. Follow us on Facebook at cahirtidytowns.
