Cahir Tidy Towns

The Cahir tidy towns held a very well supported quiz last weekend and would like to thank all the clubs, individuals and groups that supported them on the night. We were overwhelmed with the support we got and the 37 tables was a great motivator for the year ahead.
Thanks also to those who dropped in spot prizes and supported the raffle, it is appreciated. We must pay special appreciation to Hughie, Margaret & Staff for their assistance in this very important fundraiser.
The sensory garden renovations are progressing well and with the expertise of Philip Quinn, holy cross, we will have an finished product that will make the garden more open and accessible to all.
Litter picking on the cork Road by Mr Butler was carried out at the weekend and it's coming to the stage that penalty points for throwing litter out car Windows is near. There was 20 bags of litter gathered between Reeska Road and Tincurry Bridge. We would also like to thank Highfield residents for cutting the hedge over the bed on the Mitchelstown road and also the lads who complete the work in Beechpark and Clonmel Road.
We are full blown TT from this week forward now that we are into March any will commence with town litter this week. On 25th April we will have an all out town collection in every estate as a community spring clean. We will supply bags and gloves so any estate wanting to participate should contact Andy on 086-3609110 for details.

The Cahir Tidy Towns Operation Transformation group launched the 21 day walking challenge last Thursday night in Duneske and record cards are available from the reception area. This is open to all to take part and once again it is a free event,
While some are coming down for the high of running a first 5 km we have others representing the group at events around the county and this is good to see as members progress in their fitness. We meet this coming Thursday in Duneske to present the proceeds of the run to ICAN juvenile arthritis and we encourage all members to wear their t shirts from the picture. This will happen at 7.15 before the run. We will continue to meet on Tuesday and Thursday at 7.30 pm. Details of the operation transformation fashion show will be announced in the coming weeks and is in aid of suicide awareness. It is a show not to be missed.
