Cobh Tidy Towns Notes



tidytowns600x4001March 1st – Volunteers headed to Cove Fort today and picked stones from the grassed area to encourage further growth and even out the surface in advance of the official opening of the Titanic Memorial Garden in April. We gathered leaves and litter from Park Road, Aherns Place and Carrignafoy.The cutting of bushes near the former IFI factory is now coming to an end. However the clearing away still needs to be completed. The transformation is amazing, with a fantastic line of trees, stone walls and extra road exposed! Thank you to Gary Mills for taking the initiative to clean up his family’s own property in the area and a lot more besides. — with Gary Mills.

March 8th – On a day when it was anyone’s guess if it would rain or pour just 2 volunteers turned up at the Five Foot Way at 10 am. Four bags of litter were picked at Newtown, Small’s Well and near Coral Leisure.

Elsewhere however five volunteers were rebuilding stone walls and clearing cut bushes near IFI and picking litter from Cow’s Cross to Lissaniskey. Other volunteers helped over the past three days with the bag pack that was very generously supported at Garvey’s Super Valu for the St. Patrick’s Day Parade.

March 11th – The whole of the Tay road was picked of litter this morning from Ballynoe to Cuskinny. 5 bags of litter were collected between Cows Cross and Cuskinny. Also picked was the approach road and Ballynoe Hill – a bag of litter was picked between Rushbrooke Links and Ballynoe Farm alone. With this wonderful sunshine, wouldn’t it be great if we could walk, run, cycle, drive on roads that remained litter free?!
