Tidy Towns is making progress
Noel McCarthy chairman of Fermoy Tidy towns Committee was happy to record yet another year of progress in the working of his group towards helping to make Fermoy litter-free and beautiful as he addressed the AGM of that body recently.
One source of satisfaction to the Group is the fact that Fermoy is still ranked as Litter Free to European standards as well as increasing its marks in the National Tidy town by a whopping six marks.
Noel was happy that the recent spring clean in the town was a success and said that the Group were prepared to meet up with any residential group who still wish to do a clean-up by making plastic bags etc available to them.
Speaking on the Image enhancement of the town and its approaches, he praised the work which John Feeney and his FAS workers are carrying out on Kevin Barry Hill at the moment.
This will certainly do wonders for that part of the town, he also praised the work at the roundabout at the Dublin side of the town and he thanked Dave Ryan and the Amber Station Services for their help in this respect.
Noel hopes that a similar project can be arranged at the roundabouts on the Cork side of town this year.
He signalled a welcome return to the contractor who is responsible for the public grass cutting in Fermoy during the growing season.
Dog fouling in public places is another project that the Group have initiated during the past year but it still remains to be seen if it will be taken up?
The outgoing members were again re-elected as follows Chairman noel McCarthy, Vice chairman John Murphy, Hon Sec/Treasurer Christy Roche, Administrator /Sec Marie O'Brien, PRO Tad O'Donovan.
