Cobh Tidy Towns News – 16th October



Cobh Tidy Towns volunteers continued their sustained efforts this week to make Cobh a nicer place to live in, work in and visit.

The unseasonably warm weather has meant a surge in grass growth and the area by the Cross River Ferry and further large areas in the Old Church Cemetery were cut again this week.

On Thursday night almost one hundred people attended the opening night of the Haulbowline Theatre Group’s latest production “Run for Your Wife”. The proceeds of the night were generously given to Cobh Tidy Towns and over €1500 was raised. The show was a great night of entertainment and laughter and we would highly recommend going to see it for its final four nights from 20th to 23rd October.


Throughout the week litter continued to be removed from the roads and streets of Cobh. It is an unfortunate fact that a large bag of litter is picked from the Carrignafoy road every day and people continue to throw litter from their cars on the approach roads to Cobh. It is also disappointing that a litter bin valued at over €300 was burned out at the top of West View this week.

On Saturday an impressive 18 volunteers came out including 9 young people. Some of the young people from Cobh Youth Services are embarking on an exciting Art Project involving the litter that we collect. Forty bags of litter were picked from the strand around the corner from Whitepoint and ten bags of leaves were gathered from the small car park.


We will continue to work throughout the winter. Volunteers meet on most Mondays at 12 noon at the Crow’s Nest and at the playground on the Five Foot Way every Saturday at 10 am.

New volunteers are always welcome.
