The second part of Cahir Tidy Town’s ‘Take Me Out Cahir’ programme is to provide a Memorial Garden at the steps of the Dovecote.

The second part of Cahir Tidy Town’s ‘Take Me Out Cahir’ programme is to provide a Memorial Garden at the steps of the Dovecote.

They have now erected a hand rail and levelled the area in preparation for the official planting and blessing which will take place on Sunday, May 19. Anyone who has a loved one buried locally or away and wants to remember them in a more novel way can plant a shrub and have their loved ones name put on a plaque at the Memorial Garden.

Tidy Towns will be able to do this for €20 each but booking is essential as places are filling fast. They will start the planting at 2pm on the day and will have the blessing and unveiling of a plaque to Gussy Morrissey at 3pm when all work is complete.

Tidy Towns are encouraging people to plant their own shrub on the day but of course the Tidy Towns team will be on hand to assist if needs be. This promises to be a great occasion and the completion of another wonderful project.

Booking of a spot can be done through any committee member or by text or phone to 086-3609110.

The local group meet as usual on Wednesday evenings at 7pm. Don’t forget, you can follow the group on Facebook to at cahirtidytowns and check out all their updates and pictures too!
