Antisocial behavior at Glin Town Park

VANDALISM AT GLIN PARK AND PIER.

Glin Development and Tidy Towns erected 6 signs ‘Managed for Wildlife ‘ and ‘Please don’t litter’ around the Glin Park and pier road areas over the past two summers. These signs have in recent times been vandalised on more than one occasion. The signs have been pulled off their poles and damaged and then tossed into the tide and into ditches. It is a sad day when we have to witness such mindless vandalism in our beautiful home town of Glin. This is just one example of other incidents which have been taking place in Glin. It was through local fundraising and the generosity of Glin residents that allowed us to purchase those signs. If these acts of mindless and stupid behavior aren’t put to a stop now it will continue to escalate😡
PLEASE REPORT ANY SIGHTINGS OF VANDALISM TO ANY MEMBER OF GLIN DEVELOPMENT OR OUR LOCAL GARDA.

Intermediate Championship

Glin 2-11

Mungret 1-11

We got our intermediate campaign back on track at the Bog Garden last Thursday evening with a well earned victory over Mungret. Going into the game needing a win to stay in the shake up, our lads put in their best performance of the year. Our opponents started brightly but points from Jack and Paul Sheahan, and Kevin Moore (frees) saw us draw level. On the 20th minute mark, a long pass from Moore found Pádraig Scanlon in the corner, who rounded his man and set up Ger Lyons to palm to the net. Mungret responded with a goal against the run of play before Scanlon added two more point before half time. HT: Mungret 1-7 Glin 1-6.

Kevin Moore opened the second half with a wonderful long range goal from 30 yards out to put us two points ahead. Shortly afterwards, John Wallace swaggered up from corner back to kick a great point for the second game in a row. In the 45th minute, Ger Lyons caught a long raking pass, swivelled, and kicked a fine score from out on the right. Subsequently, Scanlon added another free, and the impressive Jack Sheehan struck over two further points give us five point lead. Though Mungret led an onslaught on our goal for the last ten minutes, composed defending and two top drawer saves from Seán Lyons meant that we saw out the remaining minutes of the game and claimed a deserved two points. Our last group match is against Claughaun, towards the end of August when we will still be in with a shout of making the quarter finals.

Team: Seán Lyons, John Wallace, Tadhg Culhane, Maurice Moore, Ronan Culhane, Brian O’Donovan, Pádraig Costello, Kevin Moore, Paul Sheahan, Jack Sheehan, Darren Sheahan, Shane Culhane (capt.), Gary Culhane, Ger Lyons, Pádraig Scanlon. Subs: Brendan Flanagan for Shane Culhane, Seán Horan for Gary Culhane, Pádraig Horan for Ger Lyons.

Well Done

Knight of Glin Exhibition Room

 

The first art gallery built in Britain or Ireland reopened to the public in Dublin in June. The exhibition space at the City Assembly House on South William Street in Dublin was built in 1766 and has been completely renovated to modern art gallery standards. The City Assembly House was once the Dublin Civic Museum and, after lying vacant for ten years became the headquarters of the Irish Georgian Society in 2013. This latest renovation phase involves the unveiling of an octagonal art gallery, built by the Society of Artists in Ireland in 1766, as the first purpose-built exhibition space in Britain and Ireland. It is now known as the Knight of Glin Exhibition Room.

Thanks to Peg @ Glin library for bringing this news to us.
