Cahir Tidy Towns and Meet and Train

St Declans Grove is well under way and 10,000 bulbs are about to be set. Over 520 tonnes of Clay have been added to the Grove and in about 3 weeks' time the Trees will be planted. Some of the trees are 4 meters tall and its sure to be a huge attraction to the area for years to come. There are still some trees available to families or Businesses that might like to avail of one and their name will be engraved on a plaque with their tree. This is a one off payment and we would like to see all the trees sold as the project is costing us €22,500. Next year when St Declans Way is launched as a Camino walk or pilgrim path, this will be the focal point in town. Trees are costing €300 but when divided between family members it is achievable. Carving continues in the Inch Field with Philip Quinn and are proving to be a huge attraction.

This coming Saturday, 24th October is the annual weee Ireland collection in the Castle Car {ark and anything with a plug will be accepted. This is an ideal opportunity to get rid of unwanted electrical items hanging around the house.

The Cahir Meet & Train members took on the first leg of St Declans way on Sunday as they left Cashel at 8.30 to trek homewards via the old Road into Loughkent, Chamberlainstown,Outraty, Mortlestown, Knockagh and priest Road. Running continue every Tuesday and Thursday and beginners always welcome. Next week is week 5 of the Couch to 5 km.

The course will also be completed by horseback and is all in a good cause. please try come along and join us for running / walking of country roads.
