Refresh Thurles looking at nine approach roads

As the weather begins to improve we are beginning to see more outdoor activity as gardening, painting and cleaning projects progress – and May 23rd is the closing date for entry to the Supervalu National Tidy Towns Competition.

The committee has been hard at work compiling the entry for Thurles – we are appealing to everyone to make every effort to keep your area clean and tidy. A daily sweep outside your property will contribute to a cleaner town. Refresh Thurles assisted the students from Thurles C.B.S. in a clean up at the Railway Field – we appeal to residents to stop throwing domestic waste into the field. Much of the material recovered could have been disposed of at the Recycling point for bottles in the Parnell Street Carpark. We are delighted to see that the Post Office on Liberty Square has been repainted and thank the postmasters for their support on this matter.

The Committee of Refresh Thurles has been looking at the 9 approach roads to Thurles and the combination of signage that exists presently. In some case for visitors there is no directional signage and many roads still refer to “Thurles as Home of Erin Foods”. There have been some calls for signage for European Town of Sport and for Birthplace of the G.A.A. – what do you think? We would like any comment you have regarding signage on the approach roads.
