Balbriggan Tidy Towns have sent a hearthy thank you to Balbriggan & District Historical Society for their generous donation last week, writes Rose Barrett.
“Brian Howley (Chair Historical Society) presented us with a cheque and a copy of their fascinating book on the history of Balbriggan,” wrote Balbriggan TT online.
“This was to acknowledge the work our volunteers do for the town but particularly re maintaining the plaque to Balbriggan native, Sinead Flanagan, author and wife of Eamonn de Valera.
“Thank you to all in the history society; we look forward to planting many more flowers around the plaque. If anyone would like to join Tidy Towns for our regular beach clean-ups, please meet us on the beach any Saturday at 11am.”
Please note, on Saturday next, there will be three meeting places to choose from:
1. Balbriggan main beach
2. Millfield (beside the graveyard)
3. Flemington Centre
“Just bring your own gloves and Balbriggan TT will look after the rest.”
