Cahir Tidy Towns and Meet & Train

The Cahir Tidy Towns Group are keeping the pressure on with litter picking and weeding in the hope of a second judging to gain points in this years competition. The local competition closing date was last weekend and we are delighted that a contingent from Emly Tidy Towns committee will be the judges this year. There cannot be any doubling up of prizes and the best position in a category will be awarded. These should be judged this week. A lot of people went to a lot of trouble this year with painting and floral displays and it is important that they are kept watered and maybe at this stage some tomato feed to get some more weeks out of them. After all, we have the Fair of Cahir, the Cannonball and the Cahir Fleadh to come so we want the town looking good. Well done to all on a serious effort so September our focus will turn to our St Declan's Grove in preparation for St Declan's way pilgrim path next year and this project will cost approx EUR22,500 and family monuments will cost EUR350 and will be limited to 40. This will be a huge project with 10,000 bulbs in the base of the grove. Meet as normal on Wednesday at 7pm.

Cahir Meet & Train

The Cahir Meet and Train group have teamed up with the fair of Cahir to have a fun 5km run/walk where you give your predicted time before you start the route. No watches, phones or timing devices are allowed and the 10 nearest their time will win prizes. You might be last to finish and could still be the winner on closest time. There is also a fun element to the run as the topic is the Mad Hatters run and prizes for the best costume. Kids are welcome to enter and we will have a short route for them to complete also just to get them out exercising. Entry is EUR5 for the event and proceeds to the St Declan's Grove project in Cahir. This will be held on Saturday 22nd August at 6.30 pm. Registration on the square from 5.45 and Cahir Meet & Train members are seeking your support. This is an ideal opportunity for all levels of fitness to get out exercising.
