Cahir Tidy Towns have two big events for the month of April and they are the “Take Me Out Cahir” night and the planting of the Memorial Garden.

Firstly Tidy Towns need the Take Me Out night to be a success so that they can raise money to subsidise the Memorial Garden.

This will be a fun night out with some local lads trying to strut their stuff to win a date! It should be hilarious and it’s on in Cahir House on Saturday, April 6, at 8.30pm and cost is just €10. Profits from this night will go towards the Memorial Garden and Gussies Steps at the Dovecote. Anyone wanting to plant a shrub will need to book it in beforehand as very few will be available on the day.

We hope to keep the cost of the plant and name plaque as low as we can. This is a great way to remember a loved one buried in Cahir or elsewhere under the setting of Cahir Castle. It will also be the unveiling of a memorial stone in honor of Gussy Morrissey, Town Foreman, who was a great patron and friend of Tidy Towns.

It can be a place to visit if the distance to the grave is not accessible on a regular basis. You could take a cutting from the plant and place one on the grave and one in the garden.

We will also erect a railing on the steps on the day of the opening which hopefully will be before the end of the month. A shrub can be booked with Andy on 086-3609110 or with any member or through the Enterprise Center.

Tidy Towns have also planted the two beds on the Clonmel Road at each side of the Railway Bridge and as always all monies raised go directly back into the town.
