Glin Development Association: is organising a clean-up of the town and approach roads in preparation for the Tidy Towns Competition. This clean-up will take place on Wednesday evening, 4th at 7.30p.m., meeting in the town park. Please get involved in this very worthwhile event for our town. Further details next week.

Glin Library: The library is one of the village’s greatest assets and, thankfully, is appreciated by the many people who use it either for books or internet access or art and craft exhibitions. Since it opened in 2005 it has issued over 42,000 books. Due to cutbacks in recent years it does not stock as many new titles as it used to but anybody can request a title at any time and every effort will be made to get it for the customer. Now that the city and county libraries have merged there is a greater pool and choice of books. In order to ensure that our library continues to thrive it is very important that it is used as much a possible so Peg encourages anybody who has let their membership lapse to consider returning and availing of this FREE facility in the town. The school classes too are always welcome and encouraged to visit. She also asks to return any books which may be outstanding for a long time. This is necessary so that all books are available to all readers. There is no fine, just gratitude for the return. Thanks.

Glin Red Cross: The Glin Branch of the Red Cross are running a training course on the use of the Defibrillator. It will run in May, date to be confirmed. Anyone interested in training please contact Marie Fitzgerald at 0868691821 or Anne Horan at 0879186556.
