When your out and about in Glin whether doing your shopping or out walking on any of Glin’s beautiful heritage walks or at the pier, you will see a lone figure carrying a litter picker and wearing a vis vest. This is Glin’s Margaret Mulcahy doing her usual rounds picking up litter and keeping a watchful eye for illegal fly tipping. She is s great asset to Glin, and Glin Development and Tidy Towns are delighted to have her on our team. Thanks to West Limerick Resources for facilitating her services through the TUS Scheme.

A big thank you to Willie Wall who is out everyday in all weathers keeping our town square and sorrounding streets immaculate! He is such a gentleman and never looks for praise!  Willie is very impressed with the completed roof of the shed at the courthouse.  He has great praise for the workmanship and also the use of original slate for the project.  Willie was there every morning to let the workmen have access and locked up every evening after their days work.  True dedication from Willie.  We would ask that everyone is mindful of picking up litter and keep Glin looking clean for our residents and for visiting tourists.

Message from Bishop Leahy: Dear Sisters & Brothers, The Fourth National Collection for the World Meeting of Families is taking place this weekend. As you know, Pope Francis is coming to Ireland in August for it and his itinerary in Dublin and Knock was published this week. A Pope doesn’t come every day to a country so it’ll be a huge event with people coming from 104 countries and 600,000 attending the closing Mass in the Phoenix Park. An event such as this costs so I’m appealing to you to be as generous as you can in contributing to this Fourth National Collection. And a big thanks for your generosity so far. It is a huge help in organising what will be a really wonderful event in the life of the Church and wider society in Ireland.
Once more, thanks for your effort in all of this. The response from Limerick in terms of registration and volunteering has been very positive. I know parish groups and individuals are arranging to get to either/both the RDS and Phoenix Park. Others have registered for Croke Park. The general tickets for Knock and the Phoenix Park go on release on 25th June. We’ll also have approximately 10 tickets per parish for the Phoenix Park with one family at least per parish to get these tickets so that each parish is represented by a family.
Thank you: to all those who supported the clothing collection for our two Primary Schools on Friday.
Best of Luck: Emma O’Sullivan, Kilfergus, sets off to Cagliari, Sardinia this weekend to take part in the 10th European Transplant & Dialysis Sports Championships as a member of Transplant Team Ireland.

Knights Walk and Heritage Trails.

Maintenance works complete on Glin Knights Walk and Heritage Trails.

Knights Walk and Heritage Trails.

Upgrade and maintenance works on the Knights Walk which were commissioned by Glin Development are now complete.
Now is a great time to take in our beautiful scenic walks in Glin.
The weather is good and the conditions are perfect to take in the Knights Walk, Knockaranna and the coastal ‘path’. The Knights Walk is spectacular. You can enter from St. Paul’s opposite Glin church and follow the trail south through The Race Field where many important race meetings were held in the last century. Then on to Rook Hall Wood, through to Furry Hill Wood, Beech Walk and on to Tullyglass Hill where you will find the Viewing Platform. From here use the binoculars provided to take in the wonderful vista. You can enjoy a panoramic view of the surrounding counties of Kerry, Clare, Galway and Tipperary. To the west you can see Cnoc an Oir in Ballybunion, to the North West Scattery Island, Loop Head, Slievecallan and a magnificent sweeping view of the Shannon Estuary. It’s a fabulous walk and you will observe a variety of native woodland flora and fauna and take in the majestic species of beech, oak, ash and holly trees. The wild garlic is in full bloom and the Foxgloves are getting ready to don their wonderful pink gloves! It is a distance of 4KM and is rated of ‘moderate’ difficulty. Good walking shoes are essential and don’t forget to bring mobile phone, a drink and a snack. Knockaranna and The Path are rated ‘easy’ and would suit casual walkers and are also beautiful scenic routes. Brochures outlining the routes are available from local shops and pubs in Glin and also from Peg in Glin Library. Plan ahead, Prepare and ‘Leave no Trace’ and enjoy!

Prayer before an Examination
Dear Lord, as I take this exam, I thank you that my value is not based on my performance, but on your great love for me. Come into my heart so that we can walk through this time together. Help me, not only with this test, but the many tests of life that are sure to come my way.
As I take this exam, bring back to my mind everything I studied and be gracious with what I have overlooked. Help me to remain focussed and clam, confident in the facts and in my ability, and firm in the knowledge that no matter what happens today you are there with me. Amen

Glin Tidy Towns – weekly cleanup!

Glin Tidy Towns are commencing weekly cleanup on Saturday 26th May. Meeting point will be the Town Park at 11 am.

We are looking for volunteers from the wider community of Glin of all age groups, who would like to get involved in this initiative, to come along on Saturday’s. The aim is that all areas of Glin would be tackled, so volunteers can concentrate on their own area and their contribution can have an impact on the appearance of where they live. Please consider coming along, as it is the work of the whole community, coming together, that will make the difference. If you have any gardening equipment and a vis vest, please bring these along with you.
