Cahir Tidy Towns Notes

The Cahir Tidy Towns is back at full tilt this week following a huge effort last week in the parade. Thanks to Jim Quinlan and Tom Marnane as horary members at this stage for their help with the parade.

There have been some improvements along the Swiss Walk with a picnic table down towards the Swiss and extra signage has been erected.

We have also put a dog poo dispenser at the Swiss bridge to try combat the problem in that area. Dog poo bags can be put into the regular bins once full.

The daffodils are starting to bloom and we have almost completed the. Path through the wood below the Ice House but the rent poor weather knocked the first bridge and flooded the Lower part. We just have to live with it as it's always prone to flooding.

We have more work to complete in the area but it will take time and money.

The tourists are starting to venture out and about again and we hope that the toilets which are due t be open at end of April will be a welcome addition to the town.

Lining will be completed in town shortly and the new bus park near the Swiss Bridge will be marked so those using it at the moment should be aware that it's for the benefit of tour busses and not cars.

We will be planting the St Paul's Wild Rose garden mid April so anyone wanting to be a sponsor in this project should contact a committee members or the Enterprise Centre as soon as possible. E mail We have not picked a new night for the Quiz yet but it's looking like week 3 in April. Anyone wanting to meet up with Tidy Towns for some volunteering should do so at the Shed in Doctors Yard on Wednesday at 7.

We would like to send our sympathy to Kate Mulcahy and family on the death of Paul Mulcahy who was the Cahir Area Engineer that worked with us on several projects in town. The most notable was the sculptures in the Inch Field where we have his name in print as a tribute to him. He was very proud of this plaque and many more projects in town. May he Rest In Peace.
