Improving Athenry – Christmas 2004

Home » Library » The Athenry Journal » Record

Earlier this year a number of groups came together with the Community Warden to enhance a flowerbed in the town.

As always, funding was forthcoming from the community. Our main sponsors were: Athenry Credit Union, Galway Co Council, Athenry Tidy Towns and Cllr. Peter Feeney. A sincere thank you to these sponsors.

Help was forthcoming from Bob Reilly in Athenry Flower shop whose vision enhanced the flowerbed. A word of thanks to John Daly of Iarnróid Éireann, who gave permission to carry out this work and was more than helpful.

Thank you to Sean Mannion and Tony Coffey, ADC, Garda Gerry Fahy, Vincent Ryan of the No Nane Club, Christy Coffey of Athenry Tidy Towns, Cllr. Peter Feeney and the Community Warden Service. The flowers were planted by the young people of Athenry No Name Club who did a wonderful job. Also, thank you to Athenry Fire Brigade for their help when the rain didn’t fall! Thanks to Christy Mannion and his team in Athenry.

l would personally like to thank all the groups and people mentioned above, who helped me when this idea developed. Without your help, this wouldn’t have taken place.

I look forward to other projects in the future.

Shane Coogan is Community Warden, Athenry
