At the recent A.G.M. the Chairman Denis Ryan thanked everyone for their attendance and said how encouraging it is for him, and how delighted he is to see such a large attendance from all over the town as we now embark on new projects, and try and complete ones already started before judging commences the 1st June this year.
He said the whole Community were out supporting us last year, cleaning and sweeping footpaths, planting and weeding, pruning and maintenance, painting and decorating as weather allowed, however, all the hard work did not reflect in the marks received in Roscrea, and we now start out this year on a much more positive note, as so much has been achieved since June of last year, (and we hope for much more) and all of this will be included on our Tidy Towns application form to the Tidy Towns unit, in the Department of the Environment. Denis thanked the Officers and Committee of the previous year for all their support to him, and the many volunteers who joined them throughout the year for their work on behalf of the community. He again congratulated David Leahy, and the students of Coláiste Phobal for their entry in the “Can It” award on behalf of the tidy Towns Committee which won a National Award in the competition. He said Roscrea people are very proud of their entry, and it shows what can be done when one thinks of recycling rather than dumping. He said it was a great boost to our efforts, and we thank them once again for taking on the project and their commitment to it. He also thanked Rose for collecting the cans, and approaching the School with bags of them.
