Beech Park Notes

Last month’s draw winners were Breda Donoghue, Chi Chi Caplice, Omil and Theresa Keating. It is great to see the first grass cut of the summer and hopefully it’s the first of many. There has been more wrought iron stands put up ready for the hanging baskets. Thanks to residents who have volunteered to look after the watering of the baskets when they are up. We had a clean up on Thursday, May 9, and if everyone could just give a little sweep up and pull any weeds around the front of their houses, it would be a big help.

Community Games

In Community Games last week, the Cahir under 10 football team played a match in Clerihan, against Clerihan. The Cahir team won the match well. They now qualify for the Semi Finals which will take place in the near future.

Well done to the Cahir under 10 team and good luck in the Semi Finals!
