SOUTH LAOIS TOURISM: The Castle Arms Hotel in Durrow hosted a large gathering on Friday night September 2nd for the launch of the South Laois Tourism website. Chairman Michael G Phelan in introducing the website outlined the objectives of the group in promoting tourism in both South Laois and North Kilkenny. The gathering then viewed in detail all aspects of the new website which gives a very comprehensive view of all services and amenities in the area.
Minister for Environment Phil Hogan congratulated the group on their impressive website launch and offered his assistance to them in the future. He also spoke of the need for community groups to work together for the betterment of all. Laois County Manager Peter Carey said he was delighted to be associated with the launch and as chairman of Laois Tourism he looked forward to working closely with South Laois Tourism in the future.
On launching the new website Ann Goodwin Laois Partnership said she was delighted to be in Durrow on Friday night to do the honors. She commented on the South Laois area and in particular the stunning views from Cullohill Mountain she also recalled fond memories of Gathabawn in North Kilkenny.

U16 Camross V The Harps: The girls were out against Camross on Thursday, 8th September. It was an away game, which always proves difficult, especially against Camross! However, our girls left no stone unturned as they battled from the start. It was a draw as the half-time whistle went. The girls went out to play the second half of the game full of determination – they knew they could do it. And they certainly did as they won the match with two points to spare. The Camross girls had numerous chances to score in the last ten minutes, but our girls fought bravely and held them off.

DURROW TIDY TOWNS REPORT 2011: The 2011 Tidy Towns report has been issued and Durrow have gained 4 marks on last year to score 289 in total. The following is the adjudicators report:
Overall Developmental Approach: Thank you for your entry, work plan programme and well laid out map which were all very useful. Your very active committee of fifteen members continues to do good work in trying to deal with some of the issues that affect the centre. These have been achieved by engaging with Laois County Council and addressing derelict sites, such as, Joyce’s shop in the Square and the Chicken Factory. Congratulations on these projects. You have also engaged with local schools and other agencies as you mention in your entry. This work is worthwhile as it gives the community a sense of pride. No doubt the opening of the new motorway will bring big changes. The town will, we are sure, benefit with less passing traffic and more local trade. Congratulations on the study of the Durrow architectural conservation area. This makes very interesting reading. Durrow is a town rich in history. We admired the triangle Square of town houses and businesses with their archways leading to backyards.
The Built Environment: The Castle Arms Hotel and Ashbrook Arms restaurant are fine imposing buildings. The entrance to Durrow Castle is splendid and the building itself are well presented. Close by is Our Lady’s Meadow Girl’s School and it is well maintained. We note Sheppard’s Farmers Auction Rooms across the Square which is splendid. Moving from the Square the Garda Station is well presented. However the boundary wall of the station needs attention. The Post Office and Credit Union with their hanging baskets add colour to the area.
Tae Lane Emigration Wall is a wonderful project representing the people that emigrated from the area. Tae Lane got its name from “beef tea” watery soup that was distributed at that time.The old Infants School and Community Centre are well maintained and presented. The same can be said for the Tri Centenary Mural with its vibrant colour. St Finian’s Church and cemetery was neat and impressive. The old bridge, river bank and Bob’s Bar public house have a wonderful array of antiques sited outside and we admired the traditional half door in Bob’s Bar. Across the bridge was the new and impressive modern fire station.
Landscaping: The welcoming signs into Durrow are impressive on all approach roads. The Mill amenity area is well landscaped.The Square with its flower beds, mature trees and well maintained grass area is very impressive.The rose beds near Tae Lane and sweet smelling lavender around the pump were splendid. The amenity area with its picnic tables at the old Bridge is a tranquil area overlooking the river. The well maintained and landscaped playground which is popular in the community is a wonderful facility. Landscaping in this area is a mixture of seasonal and annual plants. The Cannon Carrigan amenity area is well presented with mature trees and seasonal plants.
Wildlife and Natural Amenities: Durrow lends itself to having natural resources for wildlife.The river is a valuable wildlife asset. The Leafy Loop walks are a great way for people to come in contact with nature, birds and other wildlife. We note your engagement with Bird Watch Ireland and that you have a dawn chorus. We recommend that with the natural resources that the town has, that a survey of wildlife habitats should be considered. This survey can be carried out by a professional or a member of your group who is a local wildlife expert. The report of this study should give clear indications of the most important areas of habitat and species. The key results of the survey should be documented and its implications should form part of the planning for the Committee next year. In addition a copy of this survey should be presented with your next TidyTowns entry.
Litter Control: We noted very little litter in Durrow on the day of judging. A small amount was noted at the Old Bridge amenity area. Your participation in Inter Community challenge organised by Laois County Council is noted. this is a very positive way of engaging with local schools. This is a very positive development for your area.,as early exposure to anti litter projects will have a long term affect on children in increasing their awareness of litter pollution. This will benefit the community as a whole.
Waste Minimisation: It is important in this category that people try to reduce the amount of materials and energy used thereby reducing the amount of waste produced. People should be encouraged to move beyond just collecting litter and to take steps to reduce the amount of waste produced. One important recommendation on how this can be achieved is to carry out a waste audit. The Race Against Waste booklet from the TidyTowns Unit has some helpful guidelines. These are generally to segregate waste collected during litter clean ups and to encourage householders to compost leaves and grass cuttings. These can then be reused as compost for flowerbeds. We recommend that you encourage the community to join the Green Homes Programme.
Tidiness: The general area around Durrow is tidy. The work that was carried out on the buildings around the Square has enhanced the town. The painting of Shepherds Auction Rooms has enhanced the area. The treatment of derelict sites is to be applauded. The Bring Bank was very well presented. The use of wire around the green in the Square seems somewhat out of place as it is hard to see what purpose it serves.
Residential Areas: The residences around the Square all looked splendid and well maintained. Oak Grove Estate is well maintained. Well done to all involved in this area. The Mill Road featured some wonderful houses with well landscaped gardens. The Cork Road has some fine houses in particular Woodland House which was very impressive. St Fintan’s has large well maintained grass communal areas and good landscaping. We feel the Committee should run a competition for the best kept estate. The residents are to be applauded on the presentation of all their homes and the well landscaped gardens.
Roads, Streets and Back Areas: Approach roads to Durrow are well presented with grass verges well maintained. The Mill Street amenity area has a very uneven road surface. It would be worthwhile engaging with the County Council to improve the road surface if possible. There is also a gate into the nearby vegetable field that needs to be painted. The black pump near Tae Lane has a rusty chain that needs attention and the concrete tub underneath the pump could benefit from plants. The boundary of the Garda Station and the back wall of the Community Centre are in need of painting. The Leafy Loop Walk sign across the road from Bob’s Bar has a tub underneath that needs planting.
General Impression: The community of Durrow has a great sense of pride in their town. Durrow is a town rich in history and we applaud the architectural study that was under taken recently. This will ensure that your heritage is preserved and not spoilt by development. Your commitment to moving up in the competition is commendable. To assist in reaching this objective please mark on the map any new projects you would like the adjudicator to view. Thanks to everyone for all their efforts in contributing to this year’s entry and we wish you continued success with the competition.
Durrow Tidy Towns Committee Evaluation: The committee is pleased with the 4 points increase in this year’s National Tidy Towns Competition. Our weakest points are in Wildlife and Natural Amenities having only 30 marks out of a possible 50 and Waste Minimisation with only 12 marks out of a possible 20. This year we must concentrate more attention on these areas. To do this we need the help and co-operation of all residents. If you feel you could help us out in either of these areas please contact Mary Walsh on (086) 3055157 or Jim Clancy on (085) 1743790.
OUR LADYS MEADOW PRIMARY SCHOOL: The start of the school year was shadowed by great sorrow on the passing of Ms. Kenneally’s parents, Thomas & Angela Kenneally. We wish to extend our deepest sympathies to Emma and her family on behalf of all the parents in Our Lady’s Meadow. We wish Emma the very best on her road to recovery.
A big welcome to the 28 Junior Infants who have started in Our Lady’s Meadow this year and indeed to the 148 pupils who have returned again for another year. A warm welcome to Ms. Murphy who will be teaching fourth class and also to Ms. Buckley who will be teaching Senior Infants and part of First Class while Ms. Kenneally is on leave. We ask everyone to be mindful of the one way traffic system that is in use during school hours. We would ask that you approach the school for drop off/collection by entering the green via the Castle Durrow entrance and exit via The Stores. Please keep the zebra crossing clear at all times and we encourage all parents and children to cross safely at the zebra crossing.
Some of the projects we the Parent’s Council were involved in last year: A HB Ice-Cream fun day was held in aid of Down Syndrome Ireland. A total of €400.42 was raised. Thanks to Happy Days Creche who also participated on the day. The floor covering in the main entrance hall was replaced earlier this year at a cost of €4,767. Our recent bag packing efforts in Tesco Portlaoise raised a total of €1,147.30. Thanks to all parents and pupils who volunteered their time, without your support and commitment this wouldn’t have been possible.
We would hope with the continued help and support of parents and friends we can make 2011-2012 another successful school year. You can offer your support by participating in the school lotto which will commence this year from Monday 26th September. This year’s AGM will be held on Thursday 13th October and we would encourage Parents to attend and to offer suggestions on how best to fundraise for the school and to make Our Lady’s Meadow a fun place to learn…
