Quick, Quick,The Judges are Coming

Cahir Tidy towns are braced for the arrival of the National Tidy Towns Adjudicators anytime now. A huge effort has been made by many people in the town in an effort to increase marks in the National Competition. Grass cutting is a bit behind but hopefully will be done this week and also some premises are painting so hopefully that will be completed in time. We had a lot of volunteers out in recent days and we will need a big push over the coming weeks. Please be vigilant for litter around your premises and bins should only be left out on the morning of collection. The big news this week is that the Bishop of Waterford & Lismore will bless and open the renovated cemetery at Cahir Abbey in September and this will coincide with the Cahir Fleadh weekend. More details later on this. This is the 200 anniversary of Charles Bianconi first trip from Clonmel to Cahir and it?s great to see a lovely Mural on Pearce Street to celebrate the occasion. We hope that the judges will give an extra mark for it and well done to the artist on a lovely job. We are currently working on the promotion of St Declans Way or ( R?an B? Padraig) as it?s known locally and plans to develop a St Declans Grove near the Memorial Garden are progressing. This pilgrim path is 94km long from Ardmore to Cashel and Cahir will be a stopover point. There might be an opportunity to create a plaque in this area for those who could not be facilitated in the Memorial Garden but we will advertise later. This will be phase 3 in this area that will tie the Garden and the Ice House together. Finally, we can?t stress enough for the need to get everyone to work together over the summer in an effort to get Cahir a National Tidy Towns Medal. There are many people working away on their own and we are well aware of it. If you need anything to get set up in your estate please don?t be afraid to ask for assistance. Meet as normal on Wednesday at 7pm in the Market yard.
