Community Association: Tidy Towns group members meet at the Bridge each Tuesday from 7pm to 8pm picking rubbish in various areas around Clondra as follows: Tuesday, 29th May Killashee Road; Tuesday 5th June Clonard and Harour; Tuesday 12th June - Canal Banks; Tuesday 19th June - Knappogue. Residents in the various areas are invited to join us in keeping our spaces clean. We generally pick between four and six bags of rubbish each evening and the County Council dispose of these for us. We have litter pickers so if you wear gloves the experience is not too unpleasant. We look forward to welcoming our neighbours to join us.
