KWD COUNTY CLEAN UP
On Saturday April 15th at 10:00am we’ll be starting our Kilflynn clean-up in the village as part of the KWD Recycling County clean-up day. It is fantastic to give a good “spring-clean” to our beautiful village and surrounding area in preparation for the busy summer months. The more people that turn up, the easier the job is for everyone. We pass through our village on a daily basis, between work, school runs, walking, running, etc! Let’s now show Kilflynn some TLC by coming out and cleaning it up. As always Kilflynn Community Together greatly appreciates your support. We will be providing bags, some gloves, and some pickers.
