Tidy Towns Clean Up: The Tidy Towns committee once again wishes to thank all those who volunteered to help with work groups the last three Wednesdays. A lot of good work was done and the village and approach roads are looking well, well reasonably well. There are still some unsightly spots. Now all we can do is hope and wish that the will very soon receive attention. We ask volunteers to come out this Wednesday evening to complete the good work began some weeks ago. Please assemble on the Square at 7.00 pm.
A Great Weekend: There was a carnival atmosphere around Drumkeerin last weekend. The air was alive with music, song and dance. Everywhere there were happy faces. So a big thank you to the John McKenna Traditional Irish Music committee for organising a most enjoyable weekend.
Litter: It is regrettable to see that litter is once again evident in many areas around the village and approach roads. A great improvement in litter awareness had been evident for some time. However, a fortnight ago volunteers lifted eight full bags. Last Wednesday a considerable amount was lifted. Two ladies with children at the children’s playground , Carrick Road Amenity Area, lifted two bags of litter in that area. It is evident that some people are putting domestic waste into the litter bins. This causes the bins to soon over fill and litter is found beside the bins. Please stop doing this. Our community deserves better.
