Glin Tidy Towns:  The nights are closing in so last Wednesday evening was the last night of tidying and weeding.  The young Buckley brothers, Dylan, Jamie and Kyle helped out and they are now our youngest members!  Thank you boys. Great workers!  Thanks to all the volunteers who helped out throughout the Summer in all the various capacities. Many hands make light work and Glin is looking in great shape.  Going forward we will move to Saturdays and take nice scenic walks around Glin and do litter picks!  Thank you to all who take care of their own patch, beautifully maintained residences, perfect gardens, and those who have litter picked in their own personal time.  The pride of place is very evident in Glin. Keep up the good work and thank you from everyone in Glin Tidy Towns.
