Tidy Towns 2012.

Most of the baskets have been taken down with the onset of Winter. Thanks to all our volunteers since we started last March. The areas for Picnic tables are being prepared at the moment opposite the Old Graveyerd and outside the GAA pitch. The bases will be put in next weekend. So come along next Saturday morning at 10.30am to lend a hand. From next week on trees will be planted in suitable locations. Then our Christmas lights will have to be put up. So there is plenty of work to be done to further improve the appearance of our lovely village.
