Dublin Road – Planted area

We recently gave a revamp and update to a planted area on the Dublin Road that needed freshening up – we had some great help out for the couple of days it took but it’s looking well and as the year goes on we hope it will start to look even better. Photos by John McGerr and John Cahill.

Planted area work

Over the past couple of weeks we have done some work in Lisnageeragh to tidy up three planted areas that had gotten overgrown and untidy – we dug away all the weeds, put down new weed barrier and pruned back the pampas grass. We also covered all with stone. We have some finish up work to do but it looks much better now.

Spring Clean 2017

A big thank you to all who came out to help today(and earlier in the week) with our Annual Spring Clean. As usual we found tonnes of stuff on the highways and byways. A word of thanks too to Gary Brady and Longford County Council for supplying pickers, bags and gloves. Ciaran Callaghan supplied the skip, which we managed to pack full.

Hedgehog dens

Today we put up a couple of hedgehog dens  to assist hedgehogs in the area- to read more about hedgehogs – visit this site https://animalcorner.co.uk/animals/hedgehog/
Thanks to Tom Dooley and Beatrice Patterson for these.
