Fenagh Tidy Towns
We meet every Tuesday evening at 7pm from the Visitor Centre – new volunteers are badly needed to help keep on top of the work – if you would like to volunteer and can spare an hour or two please come along any Tuesday – many hands make light work! Thanks to all who came out for the An Taisce’s Spring Clean last Friday – we collected lots of rubbish from the roads.  Native sapling trees were also distributed after the clean-up as part of National Tree Week 2022.
