Beech Park

Well done to everyone for keeping our estate looking so well and as a result we received first prize in the Best Large Estate section of the Local Tidy Towns Competition!

Last month’s draw winners were Linda Healy, Marie Murnane, Bernie Darcy and Richard Roche. We are going to make a small change to our 50-50 draw, so instead of one prize per week of €50, we are going to do two draws per week of €25 this will give residents an extra chance for their name to come out of the hat, so good luck to all.
