Flower Baskets

There was a flurry of activity in The Square this evening. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it was Patrick Hickey and his merry band of men (all whom declined to be pictured). These men were out in a most beautiful May evening putting up the new Flower Baskets for the main street. They look wonderful. The flower baskets stretch from The Church right up the very top of The Square. They are a welcome addition to this years crop of flowers that are springing up everywhere in the last two weeks or so. Everyone is getting fairly busy now. More photographs can be seen in 2015 Gallery.  Please do send on any photographs that you may have. Well done lads.

Many Hands Make Light Work

rubbish killareney roadTonight on Facebook a debate has begun about the roads leading into Millstreet. This morning this bag and a half of rubbish was picked up between Killarney Road and Tubrid Well, a stretch of road of about 1/2 of kilometre. It is sad to think that in this day and age when litter awareness is almost everywhere that this still goes on. But this act does show that even the smallest of effort can make a massive difference to our town.  A massive thanks to this individual, it is people like you that embody the Tidy Town Spirit and Community Spirit that is valued in Millstreet. We are aware that there are many unsung heroes in our town that all play a massive part in keeping our town beautiful and to all of you we say thank you.

Anti Litter Competition – Period 2 results.

Millstreet Judging Result Sheet - Period 2jpg_Page1 (600 x 425)League Table period 2 21.5.15jpg_Page1The Anti Litter Competition Period Results are in. We are in 4th position again. Not bad but we are definitely in with a chance of winning. The next judging period is start Monday again. 25th May to 3rd June. The entire town will be judged with particular focus on Clara Road for this judging period. With a massive last surge we can most definitely aim to win this competition, if everybody could do their  a small part. Even something as little as keeping the area outside your own house or business premises and just give a quick look and a small tidy up every morning would go a long way in improving our chances. As you can see any points that are gained now are of huge importance. Great result again for this period. Keep up the good work everybody.

The Bio Diversity Project is of the Woodland area next to the Millstreet Community School.  They were mentored by Wildlife Biologist, Tony Keneally and supported by Mr Derry Morley and teachers Ms Fitzgerald and Ms McAuliffe of the Millstreet Community School. This will be a fantastic addition to this years submission to the Tidy Town application, every point that we can gain is an achievement. We hope that with the continued support of the Millstreet Community School and the wider community as a whole that this project will continue in the future. Well done girls
