New Park Run Course and Michael O’Donovan Memorial 3 km Course Markers for Regional Park
Coolroe Court Estate is one of Ballincollig’s newest estates on the Inniscarra Road.
It is disappointing to see that the boundary wall of this new estate has yet to be cleaned. Hopefully the residents have set up a Residents Committee to take care of it. Cleaning of the external wall of any estate is the responsibility of the residents of that estate. We look forward to seeing this work carried out soon. This is a beautiful estate and adds to the area.
The Watch Tower on the Western Entrance of the Regional Park has been repainted. This is such a wonderful building and how lovely to see the care and attention that is given to its upkeep.

Number 21 Off Licence has recently undergone internal refurbishment. To complete this transformation the outside of the building was tidied. New lines were painted to sort the parking out and the outside wall was painted. There is great credit due to the painting contractor who made sure the best job was done. Thank you to Number 21 for their efforts.
Dogs In The Regional Park
Ballincollig Tidy Towns would like to draw those of you who walk their dogs in the Regional Park to make sure they are on a leash and under your control at all times. Please make sure that you clean up after your dog and use the dog fouling bins.
VMWare Staff continue to work with us every week. Their continued commitment to Ballincollig Tidy Towns is very important to us. Last week we prepared an area for edging and the following day VMWear staff worked on this. What a difference they made in a very short period of time.
