The CCDA in the interest of Clonaslee Tidy Towns request that all signs for the upcoming elections be put outside the 50 km signs on all roads coming into the village. We thank you for your consideration on this matter and keeping our village tidy.
We will be hosting a mission Monday May 19 to Friday May 23 at 10 am and 8 pm each day. It is hoped that as many people as possible will attend one or all the nights. Bishop Nulty will be here for the first day. The organisers will be attending the three local schools during the week.
Please keep the village clean and tidy. The committee will be out on Tuesdays and Thursdays starting at the Heritage Centre at 6 pm each week so if anyone has an hour to spare please come along.
Now is the time to get any painting done, as national judging begins in June. The litter challenge will take place soon. Dog owners please clean up after your pet.
