While 2020 has been a strange year, as what the Friends of Clonmethan do is mainly outdoors, a fair bit has been achieved in the first year. The group set up on foot of a meeting in St David’s Church, Killsallaghan on 3rd January 2020. Since then, volunteers have cleared most of the graveyard, the old church is ivy free, and the gates were shot blasted and painted.
Reverend Aldhouse finaly got his tombstone (71 years later), we set up this website and work started on our application for funding to save the tower. A flood light has been installed and the straightening of headstones has begun. Finally a memorial to those who fought and fell in the First World War was erected.
Tanks so much to all involved in making this happen. A special thanks to Fingal Farm Home and Garden for donating flower bulbs and to Colm Flynn for helping with the gates.
Not bad for the first year. Onwards and upwards.
One reply on “A summary of achievements for 2020.”
Well done to all on achieving so much . It is great to see the improvements and the place is looking amazing. With the new bench in place it’s a lovely place to go and reflect on the world passing by. Thanks to all of you who gave your time and support to this project which only enhances life for the local community.
