 Borrisoleigh Tidy Towns 

Donncha, Liam, Avril & Daniel all helping with the Tidy Town clean up on Monday last. The clean up took place on Pallas Street

We have entered the Tidy Towns Competition so we need lots of help tidying up Borrisoleigh. Our work evenings continue on Mondays from 7 to 9pm focusing on different areas each week. Keep an eye on the Borrisoleigh website to see where. If you see weeds or litter in your area you can help us out by picking them. All help is gratefully appreciated.
On Monday June 16th next we will focus on the lower end of Pallas Street, from Fr. Everard’s house down to The Square. Could volunteers gather at this area with gloves, tools etc.
