Village Name Plates

The maps used in the Griffiths Valuation process carried out in the 1840’s contain many records on what our lovely village was called. There were over 1123 persons resident in 1837 and the streets of Marlfield or Inis Leamhnachta were called, Main Street, Turnpike Road, Church /Chapel Avenue, Cork Road, More’s Road, Pondside. This is a project that could be progressed in the coming year with name plates in Irish and English tastefully erected in the relevant locations. 

Bottle bank upgrade

The area in which the present bottle bank at Sandybanks is crying out for some sympathetic landscaping and cleaning. There is a proposal to enhance the location with native flowers, bushes and blackberry plants all of which will regenerate naturally and provide food for the native avian species. The new location of the receptacle’s is much more flood proof and some further county Council work is needed on signage and hard standing beforehand.
