Clyda Rovers GAA are fencing the second pitch also. We plan to have the annual events we had last year such as school sports and senior citizens party. From the floor a number of ideas were suggested including a notice board for local tradesmen who would do handyman jobs.

The possibility of getting a FAS worker into the parish was suggested. The situation of rubbish in parish, we won't be doing a central clean up this year but every local townland was discussed that they do the work themselves.

The community council may purchase signs to put up in the rubbish black spots. People were urged to look out for their elderly neighbors especially in the diesel stealing that is going on and to take numbers of strange vans and cars that we see around.
