The Friends of Clonmethan group were recently nominated for the Mayor of Fingal Community Groups award. Unfortunately we were not successful on this occasion, but we were nominated and that in itself was a great achievement. Deputy Mayor councillor Cathal Boland presented our certificate of nomination to the group recently.
Further good news was received recently when the Minister for Darragh O’Brien called chairman to announce that we have received confirmation of a grant of €21500 – astounding amount of funds – to survey the tower and prepare the way for any works that will be needed to secure its future. Many many thanks to all involved.
