The Cahir Memorial Garden will be planted and officially opened on this coming Sunday, May 19, from 2pm to 3pm.

The shrubs in the garden have been sold out for weeks now and the Tidy Towns Group are astonished by the response. Planting will start from a little before 2pm for anyone caught for time and we hope to have it completed by 3pm when the plaque to Gussy Morrissey will be unveiled by his wife Majella and blessed by Fr Gerry.

The Cahir Brass Band will play some music to keep everyone entertained.

Anyone with shrubs booked can call to the stand on the day and collect a number and then pick up their plant which they can either plant themselves or the Tidy Towns Members can assist.

This promises to be a great occasion indeed and one would be advised to come early as parking will be at a premium. There is plenty to see in Cahir, so have a stroll down to the Swiss Cottage or visit some of the sites or have lunch or a coffee in between planting and blessing.

The group has been busy also strimming, planting and painting and fair play to Dave, Gerry, Seamus and Shelia for their efforts in preparing the Garden, some availing of help from some of the younger generation and it is greatly appreciated.

A big welcome is extended to Chellie of Best Friends World who will open a new shop on Castle Street on Saturday, May 25. These guys were instrumental in helping us to erect the pooper scoopers. Fair play to the Cahir Park Playschool who will erect a pooper scooper at the entrance to the soccer field in the near future.

It seems that everybody is taking ownership of their town which is very encouraging and together we can make it a better place to live, work and play.

Tidy Towns will meet as usual on Wednesday night and don’t forget to follow us on Facebook. Pictures are uploaded regularly and news of what we do in real time also.
