Gary Clarke(Tús), Peter Connor(Tús) & Eamonn Farrell(CE) are doing a great work painting the Town Hall, a couple of dry days will see the job finished. Thank you to AB Hire & Alan Hora of Loughglynn Construction for supplying the scissors lift. Castle Street has been transformed by these three men, after three of the terraced houses were given a paint make over by them, other owners have followed suit the terraced houses are now looking splendid. The new flower containers outside Trim Castle Hotel are also a great addition. The Braveheart information display has also become a massive tourist attraction, well done to Clr James O’Shea and all those involved.
Pat and Anne Whelan of St Patricks Park have done a great job painting all the street rubbish bins.
We’d like to thank Eddie & Geraldine Duignam of Highfield House for their recent with deadheading flowers and power washing some of the footpath on Castle Street.
We’d like to welcome some younger litterpickers, Zoe and Luka Murray, Heather and Mark Winters, and Michael & Luke Farrell who were helped by their respective parents Roy Murray, Ursula Winters and Peter Farrell.
The CE workers, with the Folk Park, did a great painting up the buildings beside The Castle Arch Hotel. Jim Losty who has helped Trim Tidy Towns on a few occasions lately, helped again by sponsoring the paint.
Brian Loughrey and Felicity Carroll have cleared half the town of weeds, great work!
Trim wouldn’t be looking as well as it does if it wasn’t for all the hanging baskets that decorate the streets of the town, but it is hard work maintaining, feeding & watering them, especially over the recent dry spell, Pearce Johnston(Tús) has been responsible for this. He has been helped by Noel Rochford, Clr Michael Kenny, Willy Mahon, Jimmy Ryan and more recently Stephen McDonagh(CE) and Michael Farrell(CE), but primarily it’s been Pearce.
Meath Opportunities in Training (MOT) have crafted a wooden plaque for the Mael Seachtain Sculpture in Fr Teehan Park. The original copper plaque was stolen a number of years ago, so it’s fantastic to have a new name plate. Thank you to Veronica Allen and everyone who helped.
