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.


Meeting on Monday April 28 at 8:30 pm in the Community Centre. Text messaging is up and running now. Application forms to sign up at back of church.


Meeting on Tuesday April 29 at 8:30 pm in the Community Centre. All members please make an effort to attend.


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. It would be appreciated if people bear in mind that now is the time to be getting any painting done as national judging begins June 1. The litter challenge will be taking place soon. Dog owners please clean up after your pet as serious points are knocked off for this.
