Mount Merrion Residents Association held its Annual Spring Clean and Green Verge Tidy up on Saturday 10 April. The Sun Gods shone on us and the Rain Clouds stayed away. About 40 adults and 20 children turned up to help out and many did their own tidy up outside their own houses.
Hedges were trimmed, verges were cut and weeds were removed from kerbs. 10 Panda bags, paid for by MMRA, were filled. 20 Blue bags were stuffed with rubbish that otherwise would lay behind hedges, in ditches and filling our historic HAHA wall.
Our thanks to Supervalu who had people out emptying the three tier Planters in anticipation of the MMRA replanting them, fully sponsored by Supervalu. Thanks also to Ed Maguire for generously giving every child who participated an ice cream.
It was great to see Josepha Madigan, TD turn up, as always and do her share. Barry Saul, Councillor, who had supplied the Blue Bags and pickers, unavailable to us due to Covid, did his share, with two of his children. About 40 of our loyal residents also participated in keeping Mount Merrion beautiful. Thank you.
