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.

Repainting railings at the top of Pound Street, nice bright red. Brightens this area up, some more plants to be added soon.


Work done today on what used to be Garvey’s butchers – would you believe this building was once a court house and a kind of community centre. Thanks to Mick and Eileen Spillane for arranging the power washing.

Hoarding on Pound Street

Revamp and repair of the hoarding on Pound Street as well as repainting of flower holder and planting of new flowers. This hoarding was in a bad wy and looked quite dirty, looks much better now!

Bin cleaning and Repairs

We have been working on cleaning up the wooden bins in our town, they also needed repair (hinges, screws etc.). Not all have been painted yet and they will need at least one more coat of paint but they look less neglected. Great work by our volunteers.
