Composting Workshop for the new Composting Demonstration Centre at our Recycling Centre.

Great turnout for our Tinahely Tidy Towns Composting workshop today at the Recycling Centre. Volunteers were out first thing to help Craig Benton from Composting Ireland set up our new composting demonstration area. We painted the metal container to smarten things up and made a pallet box into a compost bay. Thank you to all the volunteers who came out to help set up, and the people who came to the workshop. Please visit the demonstration area, the signage gives guidance on composting at home.

Ireland celebrate beating Fiji and qualifying for the Paris Olympic Games.

A tearful Lucy Mulhall hailed her Ireland Sevens team after clinching automatic qualification for the 2024 Paris Olympics after beating Fiji 10-5 in a nervy Toulouse encounter.

“It’s been a journey and I’m just so grateful to have a team like that around us, players and family. It’s been an amazing year and our goal is to grow Sevens in Ireland,” said the Tinahely native, who was watched by her father, Pat, and her fiancée.

“It means so much, we did it for our family and they have joined this rugby family and I’m happy we have done it together.”

Happy Earth Day ! 🌎. This weekend 300 native Irish trees have been planted in Tinahely. Trees store carbon, give us oxygen, give habitats to wildlife and stabilise the soil. A huge thank you to Easy Treesie and Coillte for providing Tinahely Tidy Towns with these wonderful trees.

The Opening of The Courthouse Art Studio Exhibition on Sunday 16th April.

Everyone is invited to come along and support these local artists. Runs until April 29th.

This exhibition is a first for the Courthouse Art Group. Displaying work together in a professional art setting is an acknowledgement of how far they have come as artists. Although some members have been making art for many years, others had never seriously attempted drawing or painting until coming to the group. They all share a strong desire to express their creativity on paper or canvas.

Fridays at the Courthouse function like a studio with everybody working on their own projects. Some choose to perfect their drawing skills while others tackle oil or watercolour.

Key to this group’s success is the support they give each other. Discussing the work and offering suggestions is a valuable part of the group experience.

Each work chosen for the exhibition represents a major step in their progress as artists.
