Two great events coming up in August organised by Cobh Tidy Towns. Firstly for National Heritage Week we have planned some “Mini Beasty Hunts”.

Join Niamh O’Flynn, an Animal Scientist and Wildlife Educator, on a guided bug hunt and nature walk at Marlogue Woods. She will tell you stories about what a bug is, show you where bugs live ,how to catch them, what they eat, identify the bugs from each other (different shapes and sizes, how many legs, wings, soft or hard shells, etc.) and release the bugs back safely into the woods. She will show you the native flora and fauna within the different habitats of the woods.Free event. Booking essential as limited numbers. All children must be accompanied by an adult. Bug Hunt 1 at 2pm and Bug Hunt 2 at 3.30pm on Saturday 18th August. Email cobhtidytowns@gmail.com or phone Ruth on 0860580606

We are also delighted to announce that as part of Cobh People’s Regatta we have organised a Free Family Seashore Walk with Cobh’s bird & wildlife expert ,Jim Wilson, on Cuskinny Beach at 4 pm on Sunday 19th August.

In 2018 Cobh was awarded its 4th National Tidy Towns Gold Medal and a Highly Commended County Award in National Tidy Towns. These awards acknowledge everyone in Cobh who works together to make our town a better place to live in. Our work would not be possible without the support of the people of Cobh, Cork County Council and the businesses and community groups in Cobh who provide sponsorship, donations and services.

Thank you to our local media for keeping everyone up to date on projects and progress in Cobh. This has been invaluable. Thank you to Cobh Edition for our Community Award in 2018. The contribution of Tidy Towns to the prosperity of towns and villages throughout Ireland is widely acknowledged and we are delighted to play our part in achieving Cobh’s Gold Medal standard. Small actions taken by everyone can have a big impact in Cobh. Wishing everyone a happy and peaceful Christmas and productive 2019!
