Greening for St. Patrick’s Day Festival 2021.

Limerick City and County – Greening St Patrick’s Festival 2021.

The Corbry Tree in the Glin Town Park has been a beacon of light and hope in Glin since before Christmas, and has been admired by all who see it lit up in the evenings. The Tree will have one last function before it is stored away until next Christmas!

The Corbry Tree.

Glin Development and Glin Castle have been selected to take part in an initiative run by Limerick City and County Council to take part in a ‘greening’ initiative for St. Patricks Day.  

The Corbry Tree will turn green on the days running up to,and including, St. Patrick’s Day!

‘St Patrick’s Festival 2021 will be marked virtually with an online programme celebrating Limerick’s ‘Edge andEmbrace’, highlighting our rich heritage, including music, food, architecture, history and celebrating our diaspora internationally.
While we cannot gather on the streets for the Limerick St. Patrick’s Festival this year, we are reimagining how to bring the essence of St Patrick’s Festival to life for people across the City and County.

With this in mind, Limerick Tourism, Culture and Arts Department are working in partnership with Failte Ireland to light up buildings across Limerick City and County from Saturday 13 th to Saturday 20 th March 2021 inclusive, to celebrate St Patrick’s Day’. (Limerick City & County Council Festival and Events).

#thankyou #prideofplace #Angleann

A huge thank you to all who have donated to the fundraiser. All monies raised will go towards existing and new projects in Glin. The amount raised so far is testament to the pride of place people of Glin and beyond feel about An Gleann. So much has been accomplished and there’s more projects in the pipeline. In Covid times especially, we realise how lucky we are to live in such a scenic beautiful place, lots of great walks to get our exercise and fresh air. It’s a great place to raise children and the addition of the playground in the town park is a big bonus. There are lots of outdoor amenities, including the pier and the tennis court and not many places can boast of such facilities. Thank you again for your donations, it is very much appreciated, especially as all fundraising has been severely affected by the Covid restrictions. The Gofundme page is still live for anyone who would still like to contribute! Thank you all and stay safe.

Glin Tidy Towns / Litter Picking.

Litter! 😒

As we are out on our walks inside the 5k limit in Glin, it is a shame to see litter discarded on our road sides and verges. The council recently cleared out drains on some of the road verges, and this has unearthed and highlighted the extent of the littering. Unfortunately masks are the new litter bug bear! Tidy Towns volunteers have already filled numerous bags in recent weeks, as they go about their daily walks. We have had requests from individuals looking for litter pickers, but unfortunately all the pickers were given out at the last Team Limerick Clean Up. We are asking if anyone has pickers that they will not be using, could you drop them back to Marie Fitzgerald. They can be left inside the garden wall. If you are litter picking, please always wear gloves and a vis vest. Will there ever come a time when litter will be a thing of the past. Hopefully our younger generation who have great knowledge about caring for the planet, will set the way, and make it a better place for us all. Stay safe and thank you in advance to all the volunteers in Glin who help keep it clean.

Campaign to leave Christmas lights on!

#liftspirits #leavethelightson

The Christmas Trees in Glin square and Glin Town Park will be left lighting for the month of January to bring some cheer in these strange times. It would be lovely if outside lights in homes and businesses could also be left to sparkle during January 🎇⭐️💫🌟
It is lovely to see the town and park lit up and bright once twilight comes. By the end of January the evenings will have got longer and hopefully our spirits will have lifted also as we battle to overthrow the dreaded virus. #goodvibes #liftyourmood #KeepItLit #leavethelightson

Glin GAA AGM.

Due to the current restrictions, the annual AGM took place online this year before Christmas. There were many positives for us as a club going forward with our intermediate side making great progress this year to reach the County quarter final and many new fresh faces joined the panel. With a trojan effort this coming year and a bit of luck we have every chance of challenging for honours this summer. All outgoing club officers were re-elected for the coming year with one personnel change. Nollaig Hogan steps down as Club Treasurer after a very successful period looking after our finances. We really appreciate the wonderful work she has done in the role and we wish her well. Jack Dunne will be taking over as Treasurer on a interim basis until a permanent successor is elected.It was also decided at the AGM to resurrect the Junior B team once more after a few years in the wilderness. Up to about 5 years ago, we were very competitive at this grade and with the abundance of young talent that has come through recently at U21 level plus a few old dogs for the hard road, we are hopeful of entering both the West Junior B League and Championship. More details regarding the management team, fixtures etc. will follow over the next while.Finally, we’d like to wish all our supporters and friends a peaceful and safe New Year.

Feast of the Epiphany.. Wednesday 10am… churchservices.tv/glin

#Epiphany #welcome 2021

The Wise Men are on their way!
Chalking the doors for Epiphany…have your chalk ready for Wednesday …
There is a custom of blessing homes on the Feast of the Epiphany (January 6) when the family gather to ask God’s blessing on their home and family life. It is an invitation for Jesus to be a daily guest in our home, our comings and goings, our conversations, our work and play, our joys and sorrows.

Instructions for Blessing the Home
Using the blessed chalk mark the lintel of your front door as follows:
20 + C + M + B + 21 saying:
The three Wise Men, Caspar, Melchior, and Balthazar followed the star of
God’s Son who became human two thousand and twentyone years ago.
May Christ bless our home and remain with us throughout the new year. Amen.
Then say the following prayer:
Visit, O blessed Lord, this home with the gladness of your presence. Bless all who live or visit here with the gift of your love; and grant that we may manifest your love to each other and to all whose lives we touch. May we grow in grace and in the knowledge and love of you; guide, comfort, and strengthen us in peace, O Jesus Christ, now and for ever. Amen.

“Chalking the door” is a way to celebrate and physically mark the occasion of the Epiphany and God’s blessing of our lives and home. With time the chalk will fade. As it does we let the meaning of the written symbols sink into the depths of our hearts and be manifest in our words and actions.

Glin Development Association has undertaken many projects during 2020 to improve and enhance the many facilities that have been particularly beneficial to the entire community during this exceptional time of lockdowns and social distancing.
Unfortunately, due to Covid 19 restrictions, we are unable to organise our usual fund-raising events to cover costs of works completed and our plans for the coming year. Glin Development Association has opened a GoFundMe page and we are appealing to the local community, to friends and relatives abroad, and to the many visitors who enjoy our facilities to donate. Any donation however small will greatly help in funding our works and future projects. There are collection boxes also in the shops in Glin.

On behalf of the Glin community we thank you in advance for your support and we wish you a safe and peaceful Christmas.

Presentation of Christmas Hamper to Willie Wall 🎁

THANK YOU WILLIE WALL….
Willie loves his home town of Glin. His pride of place is evident from the many hours Willie spends brushing and tending to the streets and especially the square in Glin. You will see Willie from early in the morning to late in the evenings most days busily going about his selfless volunteer work. He is outstanding. Willie has had some health issues of late and he has to take care of himself and not overdo it. We wish Willie a safe and healthy Christmas and thank you from everybody in Glin who really appreciated all you do.

The Corbry Tree

The weather held up at 7 o clock this evening when The Corbry Tree was lit up for the first time in Glin Town Park. The tree was christened by the children from St Fergus National School. A socially distanced gathering was held. Mulled wine was provided by the Conway family and everyone had a little tipple. Fr. Crawford blessed the tree and the countdown began by the assembled children! The tree lit up and you could hear the cheers in Clare! Well done to everyone and especially to the talented and skilled group who put the plan from inception to the wonderful finished Corbry Tree. It is a shining beacon in these strange times we are all experiencing. Shine on and shine bright Corbry Tree 🎄⭐️ 🎄

Thanks to everyone who has contributed so far to the Glin Community Go Fund me. Every contribution no matter how small is greatly appreciated. We know we are competing with lots of great deserving causes out there. The walks and trails in Glin provide much needed nourishment for the mind and body, especially with the restrictions of lockdown during Covid times. The playground, town park and pier are a blissful haven for children and families alike. So many enjoyed the wonderful amenities during the summer months. We are very lucky to live in such a beautiful place. All our fundraising activities are on hold for present and hopefully 2021 will see an easing of restrictions.

Christmas Mass rota beginning 21st December 🎄

Celebration of Masses over the Christmas holiday.

It is good that our churches are open for public Masses and liturgies.  Government guidelines and HSE restrictions are still in place and it’s always important to be mindful of them for one’s own safety and the safety of others.

Keeping in mind the current Covid 19restrictions, we the clergy of Unit 13 have decided to put in place a schedule of Masses to help people celebrate Christmas in a real, meaningful and safe way.  

Starting on Monday 21st December, we are encouraging people to come to Mass either on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday.  In doing so we hope to reduce overcrowding on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.  

The schedule of Masses is published on parish websites, facebook pages and isavailable in churches for everyone’s benefit.  

Hope you all have a merry Christmas and a very happy and safe New Year.

Glin Community Funding Appeal

https://gf.me/u/y9xyxz

Link above for donation

Glin Development Association has undertaken many projects during 2020 to improve and enhance the many facilities that have been particularly beneficial to the entire community during this exceptional time of lockdowns and social distancing.

Glin Heritage Walks, The Pontoon at Glin Pier, Tidy Towns maintenance, The Glin Fairy Trail, Glin Town Park Lighting, Christmas Lighting and Glin Playground repairs are just some of the projects which needed our attention and we have incurred a lot of expenses completing these works.

Unfortunately, due to Covid 19 restrictions, we are unable to organise our usual fund-raising events to cover costs of works completed and our plans for the coming year. Glin Development Association has opened a GoFundMe page and we are appealing to the local community, to friends and relatives abroad, and to the many visitors who enjoy our facilities to donate. 

For further details, email us at [email redacted] or contact any member of Glin Development Association.

On behalf of the Glin community we thank you in advance for your support.

Local Frontline Heroes

Glin Homes & Daycare Centre has been providing Meals on Wheels to the local community for the past five years.
Since its inception the service has grown considerably, and healthy and nutritious meals are delivered to the elderly of Glin and surrounding parishes of Loghill, Ballyhahill, Athea, Moyvane and Tarbert.
The Covid 19 pandemic meant that the number of vulnerable people living alone or in isolated areas and who were reliant on others increased significantly. Inundated with requests for more meal delivery, Una and Karen coped admirably with the extra office work and under the professional guidance of super chef Rachel Duff, the kitchen staff worked tirelessly to deliver hot and tasty meals to the elderly in the surrounding catchment area.
Working in teams and under very strict Covid restrictions, Carol, Marie, Bridget, Ruth, Margaret, Mary, Eamonn, Teresa, Denis and Sr. Mary were preparing and serving up to 90 meals consisting of a main course and a dessert, on a daily basis.
The human connection is also a very important element of the service, not only are Jimmy and Eamon delivering the meals to the door but they are ensuring that everyone benefits mentally and emotionally from a friendly smile, a wee chat and a check up on their general wellbeing.
Glin Homes and Daycare Centre is a wonderful example of management and staff working together to create a successful and vital service to the community. The management would like to acknowledge the huge contribution that the staff have made to the vulnerable in our community. Look no further than the staff of Glin Homes for your Frontline Heroes. 👏👏👏👏👏👏👏👏

Glin Heritage Walking Trails…

The Rules for Glin Heritage Trails

  1. Enjoy Enjoy Enjoy!😊
  2. PLEASE all dog owners clean up after your canine friends
  3. Keep your dog on a leash
  4. Leave no trace
  5. Respect the biodiversity
  6. Wear suitable gear
  7. Respect social distancing

The start of the Knights Walk has become a particular area of concern with regards to dog fouling. Just at the beginning of the Race Field is like a dog toilet area. This is really unacceptable! Dog poop is a health hazard for humans and other animals. Families use these walks, and lots of children enjoy the walks. Because the dogs poop in the verges, you might think this is ok, it is not. Children can walk on these grass verges and destroy their shoes. The RSS men regularly strim these verges, and they too are unprepared when they get covered in the spray off! You are allowed to leave the doggy bag at the site and retrieve on way back from walk. This problem will be monitored and any offenders will be approached to address the situation.
The TARBERT path is also another problem area for dog fouling. Doggy bags are inexpensive and widely available. Please respect the walks and your dog. Don’t give your pet a bad name 🐶, it’s not their fault!
Please also take any empty water bottles etc home with you. The walks are important areas of nature conservation and full of Biodiversity to be enjoyed by young and old. Please leave no trace and bring home nothing but good memories.

Vandalism in Glin..

On Wednesday evening last the lights in The Town Park were smashed. Bollards lights and post lights were vandalised and park signage thrown into the river. Glin Development had plans to carry out some improvements in the Town Park over the coming weeks and we need to identify and apprehend these vandals who continue to destroy our public amenities. This is the third major incidence of vandalism in our town over the past few months. During the summer the viewing point on the Knights Walk was completely destroyed and it will cost thousands of euros to repair the damage.Some months back the Fairy Trail at St. Paul’s was vandalised and the Fairy Trail Committee spent a lot of time and money repairing the damage. Why anyone would vandalise a Fairy Garden that gives so much pleasure to our young children is very hard to fathom.We need to do more to apprehend these culprits. It will cost Glin Development thousands of euros to replace and repair all the properties that have been destroyed in the past few months. These amenity areas are there for the enjoyment of the general public. If we were more vigilant could these people be caught in the act and brought to task for this needless and costly destruction. Are these people local or coming from neighbouring parishes. If you have any information could you contact the local Garda Station at 068 34100
