DURROW SCARECROW FESTIVAL: Durrow Development Forum would like to thank you all most sincerely for your support, and generosity during the Scarecrow Festival. Our 10th Anniversary Festival, was a great success, and helped raise much needed funds for community improvement projects. All funds raised by the event will be reinvested into the community, and funding from previous festivals, has helped shape Durrow into the beautiful attraction it is today. The continued support and involvement of the people of Durrow, and beyond, year after year, truly is a testament to the wonderful community spirit at the heart of our beautiful village.

NOELEEN DUNPHY – WINNER OF THE 2019 DURROW COMMUNITY ENDEAVOR AWARD! Absolutely huge congratulations to Noeleen Dunphy on being presented with this year’s Durrow Development Forum Community Endeavor Award.

This is just a small amount of what she does in our community. Noeleen is a rock in our village, always the first to volunteer and has alway declined to be recognized for what she does saying that she does it because she loves Durrow. There was great secrecy in this presentation and it was more than well deserved!
