Outrage at Dripsey Tidy Towns

Over the last number of weeks the dedicated team of volunteers have been doing trojan work in preparing Dripsey for the summer ahead. Last Saturday as we finished the ‘planters project’ we were disheartened to have to remove the winter bedding from the bridge baskets and numerous flower beds around the community. It emerged over the weekend after soil testing that the plants were sprayed with a chemical that killed them! pic here please, inb folder Having contacted the GardaĆ­ they have informed us that this is criminal damage and are looking into the matter further including local CCTV footage. We have 48 baskets, 12 planters and numerous beds in the community to plant for the summer season. A lot of local money and time will be put into making Dripsey beautiful this year! What do you think of this behaviour in our small community? Should it deter us or will we proceed as planned?
