Welcome developments in Ballingarry with stone walls will enhance area
Ballingarry neat cities
Work on the new stone wall on the left has started when we enter the village from the Callan direction. Funding is provided thanks to council member Imelda Goldsboro. In addition to building the wall, the landowner has agreed to erect two new pillars that are set back as an entrance to the land. This new project will greatly improve this area if you enter the village from this direction.
The entrance to the village has also been visually improved with the construction of another new stone wall on the Commons side. There are also plans to embellish the wall at St. Joseph’s cemetery with a new coat of paint in the next few weeks when the weather is nice. On the way into the summer, we definitely need and appreciate any help you can give us, whether physically or financially.
At this point we would like to thank everyone who is already out and about giving up their free time to improve the area by painting, cleaning up, picking up trash, washing signs, planting flowers and doing any work that needs to be done.
Remember, we’re all in it together. We just want to improve what we call home. Continue to be litter conscious, because litter is our common enemy.
News from the Church
Exhibition times during the week: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday 9.30 a.m. Saturday 7pm; Sunday 10.30 a.m. It has been great to see cars on the road for the daily fair for the past week and weekend. This is a welcome return to some form of normalcy – the village has been like a ghost town since Covid 19 over 12 months ago.
Hopefully the worst is behind us.

It was great to see the GAA activities continue over the weekend. In addition to this player activity, work will continue to improve facilities at O’Sullivan Park by laying asphalt on the sidewalk around the pitch and in the courtyard area in front of the clubhouse. The GAA has fundamentally redesigned and expanded its premises in the last 12 months. This, of course, has to do with the Trojan work done by the members of the local Tidy Towns. Everything well done and keep it up.
