The Cahir Tidy Towns group held a very successful collection with Wee Ireland last Saturday in the Castle Car Park. This event is a very important part of our Energy Awareness and participation in energy saving for the year. We had a litter pick on Wednesday evening as it was a fine dry night. At the time of the notes been printed we will have erected the new sign in the Memorial Garden to include those remembers in the extended plot. This brings the shrubs planted to 170 in the Garden and all are named on the plaque. We encourage members of the Garden to put personal plaques if they so wish.
We will hold a meeting this Wednesday night at 8pm in the Shamrock Lounge where we will launch our 2014 Calendar. This lovely piece of work contains pictures of Cahir only and is an ideal stocking filler for locals living abroad. It will retail at ?10 and with a lovely laminated finish they are sure to sell fast. The title of the calendar is ?Images of Home? and all photography is by our very own Carmel Casey. All proceeds of the calendar will go towards the upkeep of the Memorial Garden and beds around town for 2014. We will print next week where they will be available. We also encourage you to follow us on Facebook for regular updates on our work and the bed at Barrack Street will be complete as soon as the weather picks up a bit.
Finally, the Cahir Tidy Towns Group would like to extend its sympathy to Denis Ryan(the Black Bee) on the death of his uncle and also to the family and Friends of Billy Purtill. Billy was a great supporter of Cahir Tidy towns and always had a few teams lined up every year for the Table Quiz. He loved to see progress and had pride in the town he lived in. He is a big loss to his family and friends and especially to his workmates in the council who have had two friends removed from this life in just over a year. We know Billy will have a word with the man above for some extra points next year. May they rest in peace.
