Kerry GAA Clubs Signing Up For April 14th County Clean Up Day

Kerry GAA clubs will join the County Clean Up which will take place across the county on Saturday, April 14th.

With just weeks to go to the biggest annual litter clean-up effort in Kerry, organisers are encouraging individuals and groups to sign up and participate on the day.

More People Involved

They say the more people involved and the greater the visibility of those taking part, the more successful the event will be.

Thousands of individuals and groups have already signed up with KWD Recycling which is distributing the County Clean-Up packs and arranging pick-up points for litter collected.

Very Worthwhile Initiative

‘We are delighted to get on board with this very worthwhile initiative,’ said Tim Murphy, chairman of the Kerry County Board of the GAA.

“We have asked GAA clubs and members all over Kerry to help out on the day and get involved with the teams in their areas who will helping to make the county spick and span. As a grassroots organisation across the county, we are delighted to offer our support,” said Mr. Murphy.

Get Together and Gather

The Clean Up coordination team members are asking local residents’ associations, schools, youth groups, sporting groups, businesses, families or simply a few friends to get together and gather litter along the major routes and along the local country roads throughout Kerry on the day.

Colm Cooper is on the County Clean-up team again this year and is working hard as always to promote the county and lend a helping hand.

Roads Less Travelled

“The message we want to get out this year is to clean up the roads that are less frequently collected and stretches of roadside that might not have been cleaned in recent years,” said Environmental Awareness Officer with Kerry County Council, Oonagh O’Connor.

“We hope as many people as possible will participate – all you have to do is think about the roads we pass every day on our way from home to the shops, schools and work. And get involved,” Ms. O’Connor urged.
