Thanks to Rathkeevin Macra for organising the Newchapel graveyard cleanup and thanks to all the people who turned up to help on Saturday last.
Girls and boys, young and old worked hard all day; years of overgrowth and neglect were removed, tombs and headstones emerged from ivy, trees, briars and grass to leave the graveyard in a more respectful and fitting condition.
Thanks for the great effort. We hope to post some photographs here on the Clerihan website next week.

Congrats to the lads who put the hard work in to preparing the car for the Tipperary campaign. Without this dedication our village would be a poorer place.
Shame on some of our local ‘citizens’ who took the Tipp jersey off the mannequin that was on top of the car. Bad form lads.
