It’s great to see window boxes and hanging baskets in full bloom and bring an air of Summer to the village despite the inclement weather. A big ’Thank You’ to the FAS workers who continue to keep the village neat and tidy by keeping grass cut, weeding flower beds and power-washing the bridge railings. The committee is in talks with Waterways Ireland in relation to the plaza area opposite the Tourist Office and designing it with hard landscaping. This will give a better view of the river Shannon from the roadside. We would encourage everyone to keep the village neat and tidy and if you need help to do painting etc contact a member of the committee. Judging for the Tidy Towns competition has taken place and we are awaiting results. Thanks to all for your continued support and work.
