Tidy Towns 18th April 2013

A ‘Clean Up Glin’ evening goes ahead tomorrow evening, Friday 19th April at 6:30 meeting at the Town Park. Please bring along gloves, litter pickers and reflective jackets if you have them although we have a limited number available.

Pupils from St Fergus NS enjoyed an ‘Explore the Shore’ day with Geoff Hunt of Birdwatch Ireland on 21st February 2013. The new Flora and Fauna Heritage Interpretive Panels at the town park proved particularly useful in helping children understand what they might expect to see and how the wildlife relates to the local environment and habitats in Glin.

Local birdwatchers have reported unusual sightings to Birdwatch Ireland who were delighted to hear of Greylag Geese (feral) who seem to have adopted Glin as their home. Meanwhile White-throated Dippers have been spotted this year having been absent locally for many years.

Marian Place has undergone great improvements with help from Limerick County Council and now looks very neat and tidy.

Picnic benches in the Town Park and Pier Road Park have been brought out of storage after the winter and have been washed and painted for the year ahead.

A dumping ‘black spot’ was identified on a street in the town last February and that has been cleared out by Tidy Towns members with the waste collected by Limerick County Council. All residents should be vigilent in ensuring their streets and estates are kept litter free.

For more details or to help this years Tidy Towns committee please email us at glintidytowns@gmail.com or meet us at the Clean Up Glin evening on April 19th.
