Thank you from Kilteevan Tidy Towns


Thank you to everyone who supported our very successful Celebration Coffee Morning.

Kilteevan Community Centre was packed to capacity. We were delighted to meet new community members and first time visitors to Kilteevan.

We circulated our Cloonlarge Loop Biodiversity Calendar which was funded by the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht under the Peatlands Community Engagement Scheme 2019. It was warmly received.

The traditional Kilteevan home baking went down a treat. Our sustainable Green and Free table proved very popular as was our free raffle of pre- loved items for children.

Recycled, upcycled, dried local leaves and flora and even items a little cracked and broken were used today. In the interest of our environment, we are rethinking everything!

The raffle prize table was very impressive.

We would like to express a very sincere thank you to the following for provided raffle prizes; Caseys Londis, Keenprint, Topline Wards, Dunnes Stores, Roscommon Signs, Conor Dolan Construction, Molloy’s Bakery, Supervalue Roscommon, Ardcarne Garden Centre, St Joseph’s GAA Club, Ned Gilligan,Ray Clabby, John and Caitriona Dolan, Barney and Imelda Donlon and Kathleen Shanagher .

Our heartfelt thanks also for the generous financial donations we received. Your generosity will help to sustain Kilteevan Tidy Towns into the future.
