The Tidy Towns are reviving Bonfire night. It will take place in the Quarry Park on the 18th of June. A great nights programme has been put together. Starting with a Nature walk around Lough Slawn. Then Hans the story teller will arrive in his pony and trap. There will be bouncing castles, party games, a Fortune Teller, The Burgerman and a Licenced Bar by The Local.
A date to remember and a night you won't forget.

We are nearing the final construction stage of our beautiful playground but as the grass seeds were sown last week,it is imperative that NO ONE enters the site for the next 3-4 weeks as walking on it will completely ruin all of the grass! We now urge all parents to warn their kids to please stay away until the attached signs are taken down off the gates and fencing! We have all waited such a long time for this facility so another month won't kill any of us but it will kill the grass!
