Tidy Towns Good Friday Cleanup


Glin Tidy Towns.

A big thank you to all who turned up on Good Friday for the Team Limerick clean-up. A huge amount of litter was collected around the town and environs. It is disappointing therefore to see that even more household rubbish has been dumped locally, after all the hard work of volunteers using their valuable time to go out litter picking. The good news is that we now have a lot of people on the Tidy Towns volunteer list, and we are hoping to get lots more!  It would be great to see our younger generation getting involved in keeping Glin litter-free.  Glin is enjoyed by all generations, it’s ours to respect and cherish.  Please report any sightings of rubbish/household dumping to the Department of the Environment and please let the Tidy Towns committee know.  If you would like to have your name added to the volunteer list, please contact Marie Geoghegan, Marie Fitzgerald or Eoghan Ryan.  Check out Glin Tidy Towns new FB page, and Glin.info.

Glin Tidy Towns  ‘Coastal Clean’

Glin’s ‘Coastal Clean’ is an initiative scheduled for Saturday 14th May. This is an annual event to clear our coastline of debris and litter. This year it is sponsored by Coca Cola.  This will take in the Glin shore line from Long Rock  to the end of the path on the Tarbert Road. All Tidy Town volunteers who are available, please come to the meeting point in the Town Park at 11 am. If there are a surplus of volunteers, we could do a litter pick of black-spot areas around Glin. Bags and gloves will be provided. Looking forward to a good turnout on the day. All are welcome, especially the younger generation.  Please pass the word around.  Together, we can protect our beaches, seas and marine life. Check out Glin.info,  Glin Tidy Towns Facebook page and cleancoasts.org for more details.

GLIN TIDY TOWNS.Thanks to all the Volunteers who turned up on Good Friday morning to help clean up our highways and byways.  It’s great to see the pride people of Glin have in their community. We would like to thank  Team Limerick Clean-up for supplying numerous litter pickers, bags and gloves for the occasion. There are still some areas that need cleaning, so we will arrange a date in the coming weeks to have another blitz. Anyone interested in helping can contact Marie Fitzgerald or Eoghan Ryan.  We still have lots of gloves and bags and some litter pickers available. It would be great if this initiative could be continued.  Lots of bags were collected which shows that there is an amount of litter on our roads and hedgerows.  As Good Friday was a working day for a lot of the community, it would not have  been possible for some to attend the clean up.  Hopefully the next day out will be on a Saturday and those who would have liked to help but we’re not able, due to work commitments, will have the opportunity to do so.  Thank you all once again.
