The first ‘Gathering’ event of the near will kick off next weekend with the St Patrick’s Weekend Festivities. We will have visitors from France and Italy – our twinned towns in our midst as well as many others home for the long weekend.
The Blessing of the Shamrock ceremony will take place in Templemore Arms Hotel on Saturday night 16th. Also taking place in the Arms that night is the County Scór Final, so there will be lots of Irish Music and Dance on offer. During the Blessing of the Shamrock ceremony, a leaflet outlining the many events to take place in 2013 in Templemore will be launched. These will be distributed in the coming weeks.
The Gathering Committee wish to once again remind people to begin thinking about a spring clean on their property in the coming weeks. A wash, a touch of paint, tidy up the front garden and clean away weeds etc. from walls and gates is all that is asked of anyone. We would appeal to you to do it now at the beginning of the year. Please also be aware that volunteers are required to help with the clean-up of Patrick St /Main Street areas during National Spring Cleaning Week in April. If you have a few spare hours, do please think about coming along to take part in this joint community effort.
