Oldcastle Events

An Taise Spring Clean-Up took place on  Tuesday evening 24th April at 7pm. There was a great response to the appeal when approximately 20/25 people from the town and all the approach roads turned up where they were provided with Pickers, Gloves and in some cases High Vis jackets. Approximately 30 bags of litter, tyres etc was collected and we appeal to everyone to be aware and keep our roads litter free. Well done and a very big thank you  to all involved,  .
