Thank you to all who travelled on August 15, seventy one in total went to Knock on pilgrimage. It was a wonderful, joyous occasion to be there as it was the Consecration to Our Blessed Lady. Thank you to Brendan and Eugene Mahon our bus drivers for all their help, also all those who gave help on the day. Over 15,000 people were present in Knock.


Annual Tour to Co. Clare on Saturday August 31 to include Aillwee Caves, The Burren Centre, Caherconnell Fort, Cliffs of Moher Visitor Experience. Contact Matt Barrett 087-672-6290.


National results will be out on September 9. Hopefully Clonaslee will do well. Thank you to all who worked so hard since May. Special thanks to Fás for all their great work around the village. Clonaslee looks very well and colourful. We got great reports and feedback from many who have visited. Unfortunately four hanging baskets were taken on Wednesday night from Brittas Ave alongside the river. One wonders should we, as a Tidy Towns committee, disband next year following the footsteps of Abbeyleix a few years back. The committee members can be counted on one hand.


Thank you to all who contributed to the Church gate collection on August 10 and 11 in aid of Rehab. Total amount collected was €337.50. Thanks also to the collectors, your help was greatly appreciated.
