Cahir Tidy Towns

The Cahir Tidy Towns group have been busy these weeks with weeding and planting. A major clean-up of approach roads is underway and some painting also. We need to plant the heritage sign beds on the approach roads in the next few days as we can expect judges anytime form next week onwards.

We will host a waste paint collection this Wednesday evening from 7 – 8 and we need to stress that its outdoor paints only and paints of any colour once they are usable. We will mix all the half tins together and come up with a colour that we can use as undercoat.

There are paint offers in Hardware shops in town at the moment and plenty painters in town if anyone is thinking of a touch up to their premises.

The Cannonball is confirmed again for the coming year and we have the Cahir Half Marathon in July and  Fair of Cahir in August and Cahir Fleadh in September drawing crowds into town so its important to have the town turned out well.

The National  entry form has been submitted so hopefully we can move a step nearer a National award in the near future. This will not be achieved by Cahir Tidy Towns members past or present but by everyone in the town been vigilant for litter and general tidiness. You may not be part of the official yellow paper pick brigade but the small sweet paper that you pick up might be the difference in winning or losing.

Meet as normal at 7pm next Wednesday evening in Market Yard.


Cahir TT Meet and Train Group

Well done to all the members of the group who are taking part in the many races locally and doing really well. Some of the members were in Sligo to do the “Hell & Back Run”There and others did Mayhem. There was a good turnout in Dublin on Monday for the women’s mini marathon and anyone wanting to get their selves up to a level of fitness to do this should call to Duneske on Tuesday or Thursdays at 7.30 as all levels of fitness are catered for.

A special word to the first winners of the group when Michelle Doherty, Grainne Wade and Gloria Boles won a team prize in Poulmucka. All of the above only started running as part of Operation Transformation last year and some are this year’s crop so well done again.
