New Xmas Lights

Following a suggestion from Beatrice Patterson, Tom Dooley and PJ Kelly put some lights up on the trees in the Green. Here’s a short video and some photos.



Xmas Greetings

Tidy Towns would like to wish all it’s volunteers, supporters and people of the Parish a Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year.

Xmas Lights 2018

There was a great turnout for the switching on of the Xmas Lights today – 2nd December. Great credit to all involved – Brigid Duffy and Edgeworthstown traders, Jimmy Connell (MC) and the three young ladies (winners of All- Ireland Community Games gold medals) who turned on the lights. Tidy Towns helped with the stewarding on the night but it was a great community effort.


Xmas 2018

Candy-caners out in force today – thank to all who helped out with putting up the decorations – crib and Christmas tree to go up next week, all going well.


Mostrim Macabre Festival

Congratulations to Edgeworthstown Mostrim Traders on their successful festival Mostrim Macabre. Among the cast and crew were four of our volunteers John McGerr, Tom Dooley, Beatrice Patterson and Kathleen Reynolds.

Premises Awards Night 2018

We held our annual Best Premises awards last night and we’d like to congratulate the winners. We’d also like to thank again all those who support us through the year – the Traders, people who look after flower displays, do clean-ups in their areas, they make life easier for us and help make our town and parish look much nicer. A special mention the Beatrice Patterson who always goes that one step extra. Finally thanks to Mel Conefrey for hosting our event.

Sports – a new initiative

A Chara,

A Community Sports and Physical Hub has been developed in Edgeworthstown as part of the National Physical Activity Plan. The Hub itself is based in St. Marys Community Campus CLG on the Granard Road in Edgeworthstown. The Sports Hub will give the people of Edgeworthstown and surrounding areas the chance to experience the benefits of a Sports Hub. The Hub will maximise local sports facilities through linkages with local schools, sports clubs, community groups and other physical activity groups. The main objective of the Sports Hub is to increase the number of people of all ages participating in sport and physical activity in their communities targeting disadvantaged areas with a specific focus on adolescents/young people. If you would like more information on the Community Sports and Physical Hub, Please come along to our open meeting on Thursday the 28th June at 8pm in St.Marys Community Campus Clg. Please feel free to contact me with any queries you may have.
