Glin….blooming beautiful 🌺🌷🌿🌻🌸

Lots more planting! Gary Flavin of Flavin Nurseries put together the beautiful hanging baskets in The Mall. Beautiful colours and lots of bee 🐝 loving plants. He also filled the hanging baskets in the square. These will be spectacular when they establish in the coming weeks. Thanks to Maurice Fitzgerald who helped Gary to secure the baskets at the Mall and also thanks to Maurice who takes on the task of keeping them watered! Gary supplies Maurice with his own window boxes and they are very pretty. Gary Flavin is in the square every Friday morning selling his flowers and shrubs and are very good value. The square will be painted in the coming days and Gary has more boxes to add around the fountain. Glin will be blooming beautiful 🌸🌱🌼🌺🌷🌿!

Glin ICA Triangle

The ICA triangle at the ‘bottom of the town’ got a makeover today. Ray Conway of CurraghChase Garden Centre has replaced a lot of plants and did a marvellous job weeding and tidying up the plot. Mrs Norma McKeown, Glin ICA President, was there to admire the handiwork. The many plants are favourites of the Bees and Glin is doing its bit for Biodiversity. Lots of bees 🐝 visiting the plot today. Thank you Ray and your team! It will look lovely over the summer when it establishes 🌸🌼🌺🌻🌹🌱🌸🌿

Painting before the 🌧 rain…

The two seats by the water at Knockeranna were under coated this evening. Our Kinard Painters were on hand and got stuck in. Margaret Guiney and her niece Ruth Cregan love a challenge, and no better ladies to tackle these seats and bring them back to life. John Anthony Culhane, provided his expertise, and the job will be completed when the next fine evening comes 🌞. Watch this space ….

East Mall Glin – Cleanup 👏

Great community turnout yesterday at East Mall! Ken Reidy got a head start and made light work along by his home house. Plenty of volunteers from the East Mall neighbourhood came and the cleanup was done in no time. The walkway looks great and it is now a much safer area to walk. Just shows what can be done when we all get together. Thanks to everyone who turned up. There will be another get together there in the coming weeks.

Glin Development and Tidy Towns – upkeep of Knockeranna Way.

The walkway along by the river running into the Estuary was given an overhaul this evening. We cleared the overgrowth around the two seating areas. The past winter with its exceptionally high tides, had washed in a lot of shore sand and stones, along with drift wood etc. This has now been cleared from the walkway and it’s safer under foot. The seats here will shortly get a fresh coat of paint. Thanks to everyone who came along to help out. No one was safe, even Redi and his wife Neomi had a shovel put in their hands as they were out for their evening walk! It’s an exceptionally beautiful evening again in our scenic Glin town, and Knockeranna Way is a little piece of heaven.

The First Rose of Summer by Robert Gilfillian

‘Tis the first rose of summer that opes to my view,
With its bright crimson bosom all bathed in the dew;
It bows to its green leaves with pride from its throne–
‘Tis the queen of the valley, and reigneth alone.

Glin Development – sprucing up the Town Park!

The weather is beautiful and perfect for a spot of sprucing and painting! Our members stood in for a quick photo this evening but social distancing was adhered to at all times. The seats and picnic tables are being painted and is a work in progress. A lot of work done and a lot more to do! The park is looking great and the good weather is a huge bonus. The flower beds are looking great thanks to Denis Mulcahy CE Scheme and Margaret Mulcahy CE Scheme and some new planting in the various beds is an ongoing project. Thanks to our members who have made this possible!

Glin Knights🚴‍♀️Cycle🚴‍♂️to Wuhan🇨🇳

For the last 8 years Glin Knights Cycling Club  has held an Annual Sportive to raise money for various Charities and organisations raising over €90,000. Unfortunately our 2020 sportive has been cancelled due to COVID-19.

However we still intend to raise funds this summer as all of our members and friends are going to joining up to compete in a 9,000km challenge. The planned weekend is the 20th and 21st of June. This is the distance from Glin to Wuhan. There is no limit to the Km’s anyone can do, so some may do 20km and others may do 300km (of course weather dependant). We hope to have 60 to 70 cyclists taking part from their homes and all of the time abiding by the guidelines set out by the HSE. We will list out km covered at the end and hopefully we’ll hit our target or even break it… Our challenge is also open to kids and families….
