There has been no let up in the Tidy Towns activities and work continues on the Abbey Cemetery. Anyone wishing to donate a bag of cement to this project can do so at the Co-op. We have also started clearing the large flower bed on Barrack Street at the old weigh bridge there and we are grateful to have Buttimer Engineering on board as the sponsors of the work. We hope to have it completed by the month’s end. The Memorial Garden extension was completed last Sunday and those who didn’t make it into the first phase have been catered for in the 40 shrubs freshly planted there that day. There are now 170 shrubs in the Garden and all are named. The Memorial Garden has become a very special place to those who have loved ones remembered there and so far is being kept in good condition. The plaque bearing the extra names of loved ones remembered will be put up next. Our winter fundraiser is the 2014 Calendar that we are currently working on. This calendar will contain images of Cahir and will go on sale at €10 with a limited number of these will be printed. They will make an ideal present for a friend or family member living abroad as well as locally. They will be printed and sold in Cahir and will be available from the first week in November. We like to think we give value for money and we would appreciate your support on this venture. We had a further meeting with the Tipperary/Cahir Polish Society last Friday night as the cheque for the RUTT Award was presented and we are currently planning a new project together. Names of the Polish Team are as follows; Krzysztof Guzik, Kamil Blinski, Jan Marusarz, Przemek Dymarkowski, Grzegorz Dymarkowski , Stanislaw Wiktorowicz and Patrycja Dabrowska. There will be a Waste Electrical Goods Collection once again this year in the Castle Car Park on Saturday, October 26, 10am to 4pm. Bring along any used batteries or IT equipment as well. This is an important collection to maintain our 14 points in the national competition.
We meet on Wednesdays weather permitting.
