March Mona Newsletter

______________Febuary Editorial_____________

As Chairman of Tir Na Mona I would like to wish you a happy and prosperous New Year and I hope that more of you will get involved in the various Working Groups and Committees in the Tir Na Mona area. We have groups working on the Environment (Donadea Forest, Ballinafagh Lake, Spring Clean Up), Community Alert, Group Water Scheme (the scheme is one of the biggest in the county and will bring water to households from Timahoe to Donadea and surrounding areas) and the Community Housing Project, to mention but a few. We have built up a very good working relationship with the County Council through our local councilors. All of this work is being done on behalf of all the people in the Tir Na Mona area. There is strength in numbers so make your presence felt and get involved. If you want to find out more about how to get active in the Tir Na Mona Group contact the office at 045- 870210.

You can get copies of the Tir Na Mona Development Plan at the office also. This outlines our plans for the area for the next five years.

Don't forget that the Annual Spring Clean up will take place on the 4th March. We need everyone to come out and do their bit. Watch the Leinster Leader for details.

The New Millennium represents a new beginning but it is also a time for reflection and we are glad to carry a message from the religious leaders in our community.



Liam Holton,

Chairman, Tir Na Mona
