Community Action in Ballinasloe – Making our town shine!

Ballinasloe is part of the Hidden Heartlands promoted by Bord Fáilte/Discover Ireland. With Ballinasloe’s fantastic waterways, walks and clubs we should be targeting this funding for our town and developing parks and Greenways. By getting involved in this tidy-up, we can all play our part in the vision of a new Ballinasloe as a place to live, to work & to visit.


I’m working with Tom Madden, Chairperson of Ballinasloe Tidy Towns and the organisers of Ballinasloe Walks & Trails to co-ordinate a tidy-up campaign in Ballinasloe. This will be a monthly partnership event starting on Saturday 4th May with clubs and groups represented around the area.


Valerie Dolan, a leader with Ballinasloe Walks & Trails, facilitates guided walks through local natural boglands such as the Hymany Way.  Her group is highly motivated in supporting Tidy Towns which hopes to unite efforts from families, clubs, businesses, voluntary organisations.


Let’s look at showing off our area and with a focus on cleaning up areas in our natural boglands and local environment as well as urban and residential areas.  By each of us playing our part and taking pride in our town and community we are building a Ballinasloe for our family and generations to come.
