Rathmore Community Council Working Together as a Community.
Mr. Liam Flynn from Millstreet outlined a proposal which would very much enhance our village over the Christmasperiod. Unfortunately the proposal would involve significant expenditure in year one but not quite as costly in year two and subsequent years. Year one brackets would cost €50, trees are €15 and lights €22, putting up and taking down €40. Initial cost of €120. For those who already have brackets, trees and lights can be supplied for €70. He has agreed to leave prices as last year. While we feel that it is not easy for people to find money for everything in these times we feel that this is a project worth recommending but it is up to people themselves. If you are interested please contact any member of Rathmore Community Council or ring Liam on (087) 6380053 or (029) 70397.
