All non-perishable foods & goods will go directly to Mid West Simon who are based in Limerick City.  Drop off location is Ceol Corbrai Community Hall, Glin on Thursday 7th, Thursday 14th, Thursday 21st & Thursday 28th April ONLY. Hours for drop off are 10 to 12 noon ONLYduring opening hours for Glin Baby & Toddler Group.

Litter: Our litter louts have stooped to a new low!  Despite a huge effort made locally only recently, to clear our highways, byways, streets and estuary of litter and rubbish, on Tuesday morning of this week a domestic rubbish bag had been left overnight at the gate of the Sacred place that is our graveyard in Kinard. This was not a pretty sight to behold at 8.30 am the following morning.  People, families of the bereaved, have put a lot of effort into the maintenance and upkeep of this graveyard, potted plants only this week being placed at the entrance.  Shame and Disgrace on the perpetrators of this thoughtless act.  While it may not have been locals who committed this offence, we, as a Community would ask that people be vigilant and report any cars that might be seen dropping off their rubbish in our locality, in any location, to the relative authorities.
