Unwanted
paints to
brighten
up town

The Cahir Tidy towns Group held an unwanted paints collection last weekend and the paints gathered will go back into brightening some areas of the town that never saw a lick of paint.

The Cahir Tidy towns Group held an unwanted paints collection last weekend and the paints gathered will go back into brightening some areas of the town that never saw a lick of paint.

They already have paint secured for the Library but the opportunity to paint it this year did not come in time, but Hugh O’Brien will complete the job once he gets a chance with the weather.

Many thanks to all who supported the venture last weekend.

Tidy Towns had another Energy Neighbourhoods meeting during the week and tips were given by the TEA on how to save energy and try make the target of 10% reduction in energy without causing much fuss or disturbance to daily living.

The new Tidy Towns Plan will be unveiled on Saturday, December 29, and all will be welcome to attend so more details later.

Just to finish, off last week’s report on Tidiness it referred to the area opposite the entrance to Cahir Business Park and the enclosed Control Box and palisade fencing that would benefit from screening with hedge.

We have since been informed by the council that a hedge would be a traffic hazard in this area and we cannot improve on the situation.

Sraid na gCuach was in good condition but the derelict site beyond needs attention.

In Bridge Street the signs need cleaning and a derelict building with an empty site opposite present problems, which is a shame so close to Cahir Castle.

Its saving grace is a good stone wall opposite.

In the lane opposite St Paul’s Church there was untidiness of weeds and graffiti.

There were weeds at the entrance and along the road at the Duneske Sports Centre - since been addressed by residents.
