A BIG THANK YOU!
Dromahair Development Association/Tidy Towns would like to thank everyone who has helped out in any way over the past year. To those who join us on the clean-ups, help with flower planting, weeding and contributes in any way to keeping our village looking good.
Thank you to all the businesses who help us with the blotto draw by selling tickets and allowing us to run the draws without which we wouldn’t be able to continue. Thank you to everyone who buys a blotto ticket, we really appreciate it as it helps us to buy flowers and shrubs for our Tidy Towns work. Thank you to Dromahair Foróige and their leaders for all the help with our Tidy Towns Projects.
Thank you to Joe in Centra, Gavin in Gala and Ann in Ann’s Cutting Corner for selling our Keep Cups, to hopefully reduce the amount of disposable cups being used.
By reusing these cups people are reducing landfill. In case you didn’t know it disposable coffee cups are not recyclable. We have still some of these Keep Cups for sale in the office.
We were successful in getting grant assistance towards providing a bus shelter and bins in the village which we hope will be of great benefit to the community. Also, we received funding towards new laptops, sound system and document binder for the office. Also for a marquee for outdoor activities. More on this later.
To the Rural Social Scheme team Seán, Micheál, Tony, Donal and Martina, thank you for all your hard work and dedication. It is much appreciated. Also to their supervisor Margaret for all her continuous hard work and support.
Thanks also to Theresa, CE worker in the Depot office for all her hard work and dedication and Michael CE worker, our caretaker, who keeps the Depot in pristine condition. Also to Gerry their supervisor for all his support.
Thanks also to Leitrim County Council for their continued support in all our projects. Also to everyone who runs a class in the Depot. Thank you for your continued support and co-operation. Thanks also to all the tutors who were kind enough to come and run courses for us and also to all who attended the courses. We hope you got something out of them. To everyone who supports us in using the Depot for your event, it is very much appreciated.
We would like to wish everyone a happy Christmas and a peaceful New Year and we look forward to working with you all again in 2019.
to Naomh Pádraig Cumann Lúthchleas Gael, who were awarded a bronze medal at a ceremony in Croke Park Saturday, December 15. This initiative was promoted by Bríd O’Donoghue and it’s a great achievement for the club, the only club in Leitrim to win at these awards. Nollaig shona daoibh go léir.
