John cut the grass on Killumney Road on Monday morning. Following that he continued to Barry’s Road where he did some work.
Adrian emptied all the Cig/Gum Bins and spent some time tidying up in the Allotment and getting the recycling ready for collection by Green Dragon.
On Sunday morning eighteen Volunteers gathered for the weekly Litter Pick. We were delighted to welcome a new Volunteer Michael who joined us for the hour and look forward to working alongside him in the weeks to come.
Thirteen bags of Litter, one bag of Plastic and one bag of Glass were collected.
Our Volunteers were out during the week and collected six bags of Litter, one bag of Plastic and one bag of Glass were collected.
John continued his work on Barry’s Road. Later this year Ballincollig Tidy Towns will be planting Wildflowers to make a Wildflower Meadow.
We hope this time next year the area will be an amazing blanket of colour and a welcome addition to our Pollinator Corridor.
SOME OF THIS WEEK’S WORK
On Wednesday Adrian tidied up the flowerbed on the Inniscarra Road.

A WATCHFUL EYE
Tiny ‘Tony’ keeping an eye over the work at the Allotment this week.
John and Ann did a wonderful job recycling the flowers donated by Tesco.
The ‘pop’ of colour certainly brightened the bicycle at our Allotment.
KEEPING THE SHOW ON THE ROAD
While watering on Friday night one of the tyres on our Watering Unit clipped the kerb and burst. On Monday morning a new tyre was fitted on the unit compliments of Jerry Murphy R&R Tyres.
While in the area we had a new rear door check strap rod fitted to our Van compliments of John O’Leary Motors.
We are very grateful to both companies for their continued support of Ballincollig Tidy Towns.
On Monday night the two Pats spent two and a half hours watering all Window Boxes, Wooden Planters, Pole Planters and the East Gate. The Towers and Parklet. Twelve hundred litres of water were used.
The rain over the weekend certainly helped us.
With the warm weather our Planters were in need of more water so on Thursday during the Work Night, the ‘Waterboys’ ran out of water half way through filling the Planters. Thirteen hundred litres of water were used. All the Planters on the Northern side of Main Street and at Eastgate were watered.
They also watered Fr Sexton Park, The Parklet, Station Road and the Church of St Mary and St John.
Friday they will continue with the remainder of the watering.
