Clean up 2016 Thank you to all the volunteers who took part in the clean up last Monday night April 04 as part of the Kerry County Wide Clean up initiative. A special word of thanks to all those people who cleaned up their own roads over the past week. We would especially
like to thank the teachers and students of Murhur National School who organised a clean up last Wednesday and collected 5 bags of rubbish around the School, Wood, Sports Field, Community Centre and Church Car park. This was a great community response to the clean up appeal. Well done to all concerned. It is now  20 years, on the Easter weekend, that a group of people helped the association take the first steps in providing  the beautiful Nature Trail through the local woods, a trail that is very popular with walkers. To mark the occasion a number of native trees will be planted over the next week by members of the Development Association, assisted by staff from SSE from Tarbert power station.
