St John’s Point EIRE Sign
Dunkineely Community Ltd is looking for Volunteers to help with restoring the St John’s Point EIRE sign and Identification Number to its original state. A few hours of your time would go a long, long way.
This entails removal of vegetation that has grown over the stones, and then painting them with a lime and cement paste.
We will begin work on the 1st September.
If you are interested, please call Michael on 0872770408, email at email@example.com or leave a message on the DCL face book page

One of the greatest gifts you can give a child is to teach him or her to read; it is something that will help them throughout their lives, and will bring them a lot of pleasure. It is sad to see so many libraries closing, through lack of funding, but we are happy to report that Dunkineely Community Ltd (DCL) has a small library of over 1000
books. We have books ranging from Children’s Literature to Teenage Fiction (‘The Fault in our Stars’), Biographies to Classics (Jane Austen – ‘Pride and Prejudice’), from Horror to Comedy, Booker-Prize to Thrillers, Health to Hobbies, etc. Borrowing costs 20c per book.
