Touch Ireland is a charity helping children throughout the third world. More information is available at www.touchireland.ie.

Tidy Towns Notes
“As we are now into the last four weeks of adjudication in the Tidy Towns Competition, we would ask everyone to be extra vigilant with regard to disposing of litter, ie, cartons, boxes, cans, bottles, cigarette butts and pens over the next few weeks in the hope Roscrea will have qualified for a second judging in the competition. We would also appreciate if you would ensure all your flowers in hanging baskets and window boxes are fed with Miracle Grow, or Tomato food at least once a week, and that they are watered daily in dry weather as they dry out very quickly. Thank you for all your support and encouragement to date, and we now await the results in September.“
