Tidy Village Committee have various projects planned for village enhancement. Among these are stone walls, stone facing, development of a "Garden of Reflection" (kindly being leased to community by Mossy), seating in grotto park and various planting areas. With so many demands on Parish funding we therefore appeal for donations of stone for building and old fashioned wrought iron gates.

Also thanks to those who share their memories of the village e.g. the wooden pump in the village, the As Gailge wording on the school , the building of hall and the information and memories of school days in Cleariestown. These things cannot be paid for in euros so keep the info flowing. What we do in the present can be a gift for the future.
