New Flower Boxes

We recently erected six new flower boxes on the bridge over the river. These were made by Tom Dooley and will be painted when weather permits.

Recent work 20-07-19

Saturday 20th we spent a couple of hours at the Ballymahon Road roundabout, clearing off the overgrowth. Two before photos and one after shows the difference. Thanks to our volunteers for helping out.

Revamp of Biodiversity garden

Another recent project we undertook was the revamp of our biodiversity garden with some wildflowers in the Green. On another note the bee hotel, erected just last month was damaged by some hooligans who attacked it with stones. The damage has been repaired and we hope it will remain that way.


Schools Competition 2019

SC19_08We held our annual Tidy Towns School competition recently and we had some great entries from the pupils and it was tough to pick winners. We’d like to thank the Longford Leader for covering the presentations, to Longford Credit Union for sponsoring the prizes, our judges John Cahill and Margaret Hayden and to the pupils for all their hard work.

Bee and Bug Hotel

Only the latest in high class living for bees and bugs. Designed and built by our chairman Tom Dooley.

Flower Planting

Planted some flowers today to add a splash of colour to our planters. Also want to compliment Mick McCormack on the fine display he has created at the top of Church Street
