On Friday 27th of August we had extra cleaning help from Sheamus an enthusiastic street cleaner  and his  fox.    Old and young alike were beguiled by the smart fox and silver tongued street cleaner. We thank   Bui Bolg street performers who  circulated High Street and St Kieran Street  highlighting  the importance of not throwing rubbish on the street and not stubbing cigarettes.
