Darkness in Light Walk on the 9th May – POSTPONED
The route will follow the Kilmihil Sli.
A walk in the fresh air always lifts the spirits and it’s easy to keep ‘social distance’ so this is an activity for anyone looking for something to do.
Please take all your litter home.
Litter Picking – Improve Our Environment
The Community Employment Scheme does a great job keeping the centre of the village clean, but the approach roads are in a very bad way with plastic bottles, drinks cans and coffee cups. Lots of people are going out walking at this time, even if you only remove two or three items it will help. Wear gloves and use a ‘grabber’ if you have one.
Aluminium drinks cans can be disposed of at the Bring-Bank at Fitz’s Garage and plastic bottles can be dropped off for free at the recycling bank in Brew’s Car Park in Kilrush.
