Cahir Tidy Towns group were the recipients of much praise at the recent Cahir Development AGM held in Duneske on Wednesday, May 4.
Tidy towns Chairman Andy Moloney told the meeting that their achievements to date could not have been managed if they had not got the co-operation of the many groups (residential, sporting and community) and individuals associated with activities within the town. He stressed that the Wednesday night club work tirelessly in areas outside their boundaries to enhance the town and their commitment is not going unnoticed.
Mr Moloney also said that the relationship the group have with the council authorities and ground staff was a key factor in reaching the targets set by Frank Donaldson in the three year plan. The Ha Ha, Mall lighting and town signage are testament to some of the actions of the council staff. The group also engaged the services of the council with litter bags collection following the clean up blitz.
The Angling and Gun Clubs hope to repair the damage to the duck sanctuary and continue to promote the wildlife on the river. The chairman finished his report by asking people to be active on the ground over the coming month and be ready for judging from the first week in June. All painting and power hosing should be done by this time.
Cahir will be entering the National and the South Tipperary County Council Competition this year and hopefully be in a position for a national award by the end of next year. The volunteer group are working on this now. The Tidy Towns group will meet collectively on Wednesday next, May 11, in the Car Park for general clean up and weeding jobs.
