Forum News

After 17 months it was loving seeing faces at the Forum meeting tonight. It was nice to have all the members back to share the news with them that Ms Anne Tynte has transferred ownership of Dunlavin Handball Alley and Dunlavin Fair Green to Dunlavin & District Forum for the community of Dunlavin.

It is a special night for our community. The Fair Green was first recorded in the history books in the mid 1600’s when permission was sought to hold fairs in the village by Sir Richard Bulkeley. It passed into the Tynte Family in 1710 and is now with the Dunlavin community.

It will remain as a place of relaxation and recreation and will no doubt continue to enhance our beautiful village.

We would like to acknowledge the support of the members of Dunlavin Playground CLG in bringing this to fruition and also thank Mr. Peter Doyle of Doyle Fox and Associates for his help and support.
