News from around Clashmore and Kinsalebeg

Lots happening

JJ Fitzgerald and his team of elves have put in a lot of time and effort to make the village look special this year. Please support them by turning up to some of these events in Clashmore and Kinsalebeg.                                                         

Climate Change
On Wednesday next, December 7th the group is off to meet up with similar groups - interested in energy efficiency in the community - in Ballyvourney.
The photos below were taken by David Hemming while he and Robert Anthony were preparing

Community Heroes of the Month

Sept: Clashmore Ramblers
Oct:   Kay Ledingham

Nov:  Joint award to the Community Alert Groups for Clashmore and Kinsalebeg 

Calendar 2018
We are planning ahead. The Community Council is going to issue a Calendar with local photographs but not until January 2018. So we are having a photographic competition each month until then. Every month there will be a different theme and the winning photograph will be chosen to appear in the calendar.
The themes are

December 2016   Christmas                      January 2017    Winter
February              Architecture                     March              People
April                     Spring                              May                  Animals/Birds
June                    Sport                                July                  Summer
August                 Water                               September       Childrens' Competition (u16)
October                Autumn                            November        Black and White

The photographs should be in the size range 2mb - 5mb and should have some connection with our area. They can be old ones if you have a really good photograph from a couple of years ago. All entries should be emailed to and will be posted on the Clashmore and Kinsalebeg Facebook 
page. The judges' decisions are final                  

Operation Transformation
There is a big push on this year for Operation Transformation. There will be classes on exercise, healthy eating, and stress management along with weigh ins and walks.
Full details of the programme will be available before Christmas but if you want to know more come along to the Rising Sun on Wednesday 14th December at 8.30 pm.

Distillery Chimney
The Community Council and Tidy Towns are concerned about the state of the Distillery Chimney and are in discussion with Waterford Leader Partnership about accessing funds to carry out a survey.
This is a picture of the top of the chimney.


The Community Council is very keen to keep local people informed about what is happening in the area.
But we need your help.
  1. If you are on Facebook please like the page -  Clashmore and Kinsalebeg Community Council
  2. Please pass on this information in the newsletter to your friends and neighbours. Or forward this newsletter to a friend.
  3. Finally, get involved yourself. All of the activities shown below need more support. Do come along, if you can, to anything you are interested in.
