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, Friday 8pm only.

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.

On the Monday night, John Pridmore ex-gangster and international author of ‘From Gangland to Promised Land’ will be speaking. John worked with Mother Theresa and was a friend of Pope John Paul II.


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.
