Formal Handover of cheque to Mayo Cancer Support

€18437 raised in Turn Claremorris PINK 2012

Angela Kirrane of Mayo Cancer Support said they are delighted with the amount raised in Claremorris, all of which will be used in their Rock Road House facility in Castlebar to help suffers and families of cancer victims, and that it was a fantastic fundraising day to be involved in. Read the letter from Mayo Cancer Support.

The town was a sea of pink with balloons, tee shirts and fancy dress. The ‘live’ music helped create a wonderful atmosphere and Mid West Radio greatly enhanced the whole event. Even the weather was in harmony.

Angela expressed her sincere and heartfelt thanks to the Turn Claremorris PINK Committee for this enormous effort on their behalf.  It was a day to remember and the goodness generated will continue to flow to the people in our county who need our support.

A special Mass will be said on June 16th at 10am in St Colman’s Church Claremorris for all those who were remembered on the Tree of Remembrance that was in the Square on April 21st – the tree is now placed in Clare Lake.

Meeting with John O Mahony TD

May 2, 2012

The Executive Committee of Claremorris Chamber held a meeting with John O Mahony T.D on Tuesday April 17th.  Some of the points that were discussed included:

  1. M17
  2. West on Track
  3. Inward Investment
  4. FDI Status for Claremorris
  5. Lough Na Nanagh and its Tourism potential

Mr O Mahony and the Chamber will be actively working together on the above items and some of the action points include the Chamber working with Tuam and Ireland West Airport to ensure that the M17 will be developed to the Airport.  John O Mahony is to speak to the Western Regional Head of the IDA regarding the FDI Status for Claremorris highlighting the fact that Claremorris has in place 110KV ESB lines, MAN’s Broadband and the Gas Pipeline which are all beneficial to companies who are looking to locate here.

Also discussed was the broadband service that is being introduced to St Colman’s College and Mount St Michael Secondary Schools – the Chamber believe that the Fibre MAN that is available in the town  should be used instead of the copper lines that are being recommended.
