Laragh & Glendalough Tidy Towns

We thank the community for attending our AGM on March 1st in the Brockagh Resource Centre. This year Finian McEvoy resigned as chairperson after many years of volunteering. We thank him for generously giving countless voluntary hours to our community.Finian has been on the committee since it started many years ago, tirelessly networking, acquiring funding and engaging in physical activity on projects in the area, encouraging us to join in.

We welcome Judy Doyle as our new Chairperson with Deborah McCoy staying on as secretary along with Dolores Ryan as Treasurer. 

This year we are looking to start a Junior Tidy Towns to get children more involved. Funding has also been announced in February with Wicklow County Council receiving €175,000 from the Creative Ireland Programme for non -profit organisations. Local community groups, arts, heritage and cultural groups, venues and societies can apply for this funding which will support the development of creative projects.

If you have an interest in either of these items you can contact Tidy Towns Laragh & Glendalough at laraghglendaloughtt@gmail.com with any questions or advice.
