Fenagh Tidy Towns
The village and approach roads are looking very well. With the adjudication to take any time soon  please make sure to make an extra effort over the next while to keep the village and environs clean and tidy in particular regarding the ongoing problem of litter along the approach roads. Tremendous work has been done in the village and approach roads and also along the roadway close to the new graveyard  and the erection of the milestone is sure to help increase the tidy towns score. Well done to everyone for all their hard work.
