Community spirit gleams in
COMMUNITIES across the
peninsula were busy at the weekend with Spring
clean-ups in Birdstown, Burnfoot, Fahan, Moville and
“The sun was shining on Saturday and it certainly
helped with the wonderful community spirit and
camaraderie across the peninsula” said Donegal
County Council litter warden Pearse McCrory.
“I would just like to say a massive thank you to all
the groups who participated, and indeed to all our
elected members for their support and assistance.
These clean-ups have become an important event in
our communities and they are great way to get people
of all ages involved in the life of the community.
It is a good way of getting to know people
especially if you are new to the area.”
