Cahir Tidy towns & Meet & Train Notes
The Cahir Tidy towns Group started back last week with some litter picking and preparation of beds around the town. There was also some power washing carried out in areas that were starting to look green. We have received some funds to add a centenary plaque in the town. This will be agreed with the council and we will have an official unveiling on Sunday 24th April to mark the centenary of the reading of the proclamation. We will be having another go at planting wildflower seeds in the Inch Field and once the clay is spread we would encourage any children or adults that want to contribute to the wildflower patch to call down and shake some seeds in the plot. Seeds can be purchased in any garden centre and it's a great way for kids to see their flowers grow during the year. We have also some ducklings in the river and the geese are sitting on eggs so hopefully the weather will be kind to them and that the swans and heron don't bully them like last year. The heron is a demon and would actually swallow the baby ducks as seen last year by many who visit the area.We won't feel the summer coming and would ask residents to plan painting as early as they can this year. We are only a few points away from a National Award and we need everyone on board to help us get over the line. The Cahir Meet & Train group had a very eventful week with their participation in the Inter firms racing in Clonmel. This is a great achievement for the group to see so many competing at this level and well done to all who took part. Meanwhile back at the ranch there are still good numbers turning up on Tuesday and Thursday evenings for the walking and jogging. There is some level of fitness for everyone and always new friends to meet. The group are non-competitive but if you want to step up a gear you have the option. Its more about clearing the head and getting out in the fresh air. You will be a bit fitter for daily chores as an added bonus although the target is to get a certain woman to run up Hallorans Boreen . some of the group are continuing to climb mountains on Sundays and we had a good few out on the Knockmaoldowns on Saturday for the Peaks Walk.
