Become a piece of Ballincollig history!

Ballincollig Tidy Towns and CCC would like to inform people of an event which is due to take place in Ballincollig on Sunday, April 24th (the 100th anniversary of the 1916 Easter Rising), in which a Time Capsule will be inserted into the ground on Main Street. The plan is to leave the time capsule under ground for a period of fifty years before it will once again be brought to the surface on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the Easter Rising on 24th April 2066. BTT will be working with the local schools and organisations to put some items into the Capsule. BTT have also commissioned some aerial photography by local company Irish Droneworks of areas that are presently undeveloped. Tom Butler said that it is hard to imagine what Ballincollig will be like in 50 years time or for the people who will be there when it is opened to remember what Ballincollig was like in 2016 so this joint initiative is a special event. Special books for people to leave messages in will be available in the library and in Ballincollig shopping centre, and watch Ballincollig Tidy Towns Facebook page for more details.
