Pride in Carnew – Tidy Towns
In Carnew we have a beautiful town, we have a dedicated Pride in Carnew committee/Tidy Towns group, plans are in progress and we’re all starting to see improvements around the area – BUT WE STILL NEED MORE HELP. We would love more people to get involved and we invite other community groups in the town to get involved. We need people from all walks of life. You don’t need to be involved regularly; you can drop in and out. Maybe you have an interest in wildlife, an interest in gardening, an interest in heritage, an interest in just getting out and about and getting to know some new people?

Tidy Towns – what’s it all about? Most people think it is little more than picking litter, keeping streets clean and sticking up hanging baskets in the summer. In fact that impression is completely wrong! Litter accounts for 10% of the Tidy Towns concept and hanging baskets are no longer recommended. The best groups have a mixture of people from the whole community involved; school kids, teenagers, young adults, retired people, pensioners, male and female.

Tidy Towns itself covers nature, wildlife, heritage, waste minimisation, environmental awareness, civic spirit, in due course raising the prosperity of the town and most importantly pride in your local community.
Take the step and get involved, make some new friends, you’ll be glad you did!

U12 Football League Carnew 3-2 Kiltegan 1-7

Carnew almost left it too late to stamp their authority on this game when they came up against a gutsy Kiltegan side on Thursday 28th May in Kiltegan. Kiltegan got off to a great start and were well ahead on the scoreboard and could have been further ahead if it was not for some fine saves by Carnew’s goalie Roland Chlechowitz. Carnew got down to business in the second half and when Billy Molloy got two goals in a short space of time, Carnew came to life and worked hard to eke out a victory. Richard Greene, Maurice Sheil and Will Molloy in the back line were notable along with Daniel Redmond, Calum Patterson, Cillian Doyle and Billy Molloy up front. If Carnew is to progress well in this league they need to improve attendance at training and matches.

The Pride in Carnew lotto 20th May was won by Mick Deathe, seller Una Butler. 27th Jacqui Mulholland, seller Jacqui.

Happy 50th birthday to Mary Hennessy.
Happy 40th birthday to Cathrine Keogh.
