The Drimnagh Grand Canal clean up went really well last Saturday. About 15 people turned up & collected 10 large sacks of rubbish during the two hours. And good to see local independent councillor Louise Minihan wasn’t afraid to get her hands dirty & joined in with the clean up.

Big thanks to Finola O’Driscoll who orgainsed the clean up. the clean ups are being planned for the first Saturday of every month. Which makes the next one Saturday morning the 6th of November 2010.
