with their generous donations. The brainchild of Janet Colgan, this very successful
fundraiser was held in Donadea Forest on Sunday 18th April. With the willing assistance of
the members of the Donadea Development Group and Tir na Mona. A grand total of £2,600.
was raised for the support of the Kosovan refugees. Many thanks to all the volunteers who
gave so generously of their time, to Coillte for allowing us to use the forest and the
shop and to all who supported us to make the day such a success.
Tiermohan National School
Tiermohan Parents Council together with the teachers and Board of
Management have been in discussions with Kildare County Council regarding the dangerous
situation that arises every day outside the school when the children are being collected.
There is only provision for about eight car-parking spaces, three of which are permanently
in use by teachers. There are now children from fifty-four families attending the school.
A meeting was arranged with John ONeill, County Engineer and
local Councillor, P.J. Sheridan on Tuesday 11th April at 2.45. Petitions Signed
by over forty families were handed to Mr. ONeill. Mr. Sweeney, Principal of
Tiermohan National School spoke on behalf of the teachers. Fr. P.J. Byrne was in
attendance on behalf of the Board of Management and a delegation of five parents on behalf
of the Parents Council.
It was clearly evident on that particular day the daily chaos and
frustration experienced by parents.
It is hoped that a solution is found before a serious accident occurs.
