On Saturday 13th of June Kilsheelan Tidy Towns had an official opening of the Lets Bee Friendly Sculpture reflecting our location in the valley of honey on the foot of Slievenamon. This sculpture made from solid Oak, with the Honey comb in the front and symbolising local biodiversity. The piece was created by Tom Keane and supported by Simon Molloy and the Clonmel Tourism CE Scheme.
The piece was generously sponsored by Cllr Michael Murphy, as Cathaoirleach of Tipperary County Council. Cllr Murphy has been a fantastic advocate and champion for Kilsheelan and all tidy towns groups across the county and it was fitting that his last official act as Cathaoirleach of Tipperary County Council marks his own participation in Tidy Towns.
Mindful of social distancing and guidelines, we had a lovely afternoon greeting neighbours and friends and admiring the fantastic amenity provided in Kilsheelan. This piece showcases biodiversity of our local environment and compliments the Kilsheelan Tidy Towns efforts to again attain top honours in the National Tidy Towns competition. We hope that you can stop and admire this lovely new addition in Kilsheelan as we travel within our county and you are visiting the beautiful Blueway.
