The Cahir Tidy Towns group launched their new three-year plan in the Shamrock Lounge last Saturday, December 29.
The document is 75 pages long so is was shown on the projector in order to avoid printing off booklets.
Chairman, Andy Moloney said that it has been a fantastic year in Tidy Towns and great credit is due to everyone who lent a hand.
Thanks also to those who contributed and collected at the Church Gate collection, as this is the group’s main source of income. Thanks also to those who gave time with their machinery and equipment and a special word of thanks to the Council Staff who work well with the group on a weekly basis.
The group can look back on the year at such projects as the Mitchelstown Road beds and repairs and further works to be completed. The addition of beds on the Tipp Road completed by Gateway Training and also the huge improvements at Dolans and many thanks to Carmel for keeping in touch with the group on development there. Thanks also to Townspark residents who undertook maintenance to the trees in their area as well as those in Beechpark.
There are many other Residential Groups getting involved and this has been noted by the adjudicators. Maybe next year we can register them in the competition.
Cahir Tidy Town’s involvement with WEEE Ireland and South Tipp Energy Agency along with e recent paint collection will hopefully gain the towns a mark in the national Tidy Towns competition in 2013.
They will also look forward to next year and the painting of the library, for which they have secured the paint and it will be completed first chance they get. The renovation and erection of a hand rail on the steps of the Dovecote where they will complete a Memorial Garden will also be tackled.
Once again Tidy Towns will have a table quiz in late February and start off the year on a high note with a hanging basket for every entry and all they ask is every shop hang one.
Finally, Cahir Tidy Towns would like to wish everyone a very Happy Christmas and especially the members of the group along with Gerry and Dave for their efforts in 2012 and its onwards and upwards in 2013.
