The subject matter for her paintings range from landscapes to abstract, and her paintings are colourful and imaginative.Elaine’s exhibition ‘Expressions of Colour’ was opened by Artist SallyAnn Beirne, at a wine reception, on Friday 6th November. Galway Artist Elaine Cunningham, Carnmore (pictured above), is holding her first solo exhibition of paintings ‘Expressions of Colour’ in The Sanctuary, Cois Chláir, Claregalway, over 2 weekends, 7/8 and 14/15 of November. She has had a great response to her website www.artelaine.com that she launched earlier this year, and encouraged by this positive reception she decided to put together a Collection of paintings for her first solo exhibition. Elaine has had paintings displayed in joint exhibitions previous to this, most recently in ‘Connections’ an exhibition held in the Art Corridor of UCH Galway last month. Elaine uses mainly oil paints, loving the versatility of this medium, and applies the paint using both brushes and palette knife to achieve 2

The exhibition runs from 10am–6pm, Saturday and Sunday 14/15 November. Elaine Cunningham (nee Ryder) originally hails from Grattan Road in Galway but is now living in the Athenry area. She is married to Galway man Ray Cunningham and has three daughters. She trained as a Medical Laboratory Scientist and has worked in that field for many years. Elaine has been painting in Oils for approximately 10 years now. She always had a very keen interest in art and crafts, but it was only when she had finished College that she began painting in earnest. Elaine has work on permanent exhibition in UCH Galway in the oncology day ward alongside work from other

local artists. After using watercolours for a time, she tried Oils and found that she loved the many different styles she could achieve using this medium, from thick impasto paintings to thin multilayered applications. She loves to experiment with texture and colour and has started to use Acrylic paint to help her achieve certain multimedia effects. You can find anything from tissue paper to false eyelashes incorporated into some of her paintings.

Needs must is a common saying these recessionary times. We are all more conscious of our spending and lifestyles now which is probably no harm. Perhaps some of us had lost the run of ourselves and got caught up in the Celtic Tiger era. Now that we are in the midst of a deep recession, people’s mindsets are changing in many different ways. We are becoming more focused on what’s really important in life appreciating health, family and friends. We are becoming more community conscious and looking out for one another. Undeniably, petty crime is on the increase in these times also but we have people who are challenging such happenings and taking a stance by being more security conscious and aware. We need to be as positive as possible in these hardened times. This, too, will pass and we will be all the better for it.

One past-time that has risen in popularity is gardening. I attended a very enjoyable session recently in the Oranmore Library. It was hosted by Michael Kelly who is the brain behind G.I.Y (Grow It Yourself ). The idea is to get a group of likeminded people together once a month or so to discuss and share ideas on growing vegetables, gardening tips, etc. It’s a good idea and I can see it becoming popular in the future. Check out www. GIYIreland.com. The Claregalway Family Market opens on Sunday next, the 15th November from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Claregalway Corporate Park. This should prove very popular and the fact that it is both indoors and outdoors is an added bonus. Our website www.nuachtchlair.com is currently under construction, but you can still keep up with local news and events. Until next time, Josette

November ‘09 update from local Councillor, Jim Cuddy Jim Cuddy, your Local Councillor given up to now by the council engineering staff was that they did not have the money to do the work. In the past week I have been informed that limited funding has been made available so I expect that some of the work will now be done. Work on EIS Study The work on the Environment Impact Statement for the Claregalway Relief Rd is now nearing completion. This was a study which An Bord PleanĂĄla required. When that study is completed the next stage will be the acquiring of the lands required and when that is done I will be expecting that all our public representatives both local and national will come out publicly once and for all and support this very necessary relief road. This relief road is vital if we are to resolve the traffic problems of Claregalway. Road verge trimming Many people living on the side roads in particular are very concerned that the council have not cut back the briars etc. on the side roads this year and the excuse that was being 8

Hydrology study of Claregalway and Oranmore Due to the increased incidents of land flooding in both Claregalway and Oranmore I proposed a resolution at the Council meeting in February 2007 asking that the Office of Public Works should be asked to carry out a hydrology study of both areas and this was passed unanimously by the elected members of the council and forwarded to the Office of Public Works. It took until July 22nd of this year for that office to write back to me and they have said that they will not be carrying out the study required but that they would do a Catchment Flood Risk Assessment and Management Study; the object of which is to assess and map flood hazard and risk and develop a Flood Risk Management Plan

and manage the identified risks. Accidents along the Bus Corridor Since the bus corridor was opened last May a number of accidents have happened when people were attempting to turn off the Tuam Rd. onto the side roads. This has been brought to the notice of the Senior Engineer of the council and he has been requested to provide additional signage at the approach to these roads. The entrance to the Kiniska Rd for traffic coming from the Claregalway direction is deemed to be particularly dangerous. In the past week a potentially serious accident took place on the Galway side of the village along the bus corridor. Road Repairs After a long wait the road between Lisheenavalla and the Cricket Club on the Lydican Rd. has been upgraded but some of the residents along this road fear that due to the fact that the road was raised that it will result in flooding of the driveways. The council have been informed and have given an undertaking that where

I am aware of a number of houses that are affected and their details have been sent to the council. Well Done Well done to the Claregalway Tidy Towns Committee who achieved a very respectable mark in this years competition. It was their first time entering the competition and they were only formed a short time before the judging took place. The cleaning up of Claregalway village and its approach roads along with the hanging baskets added greatly to the appearance of the area. Many thanks to this hard working committee and their sponsors. As usual I can be contacted any day or evening at 798136 or mobile 087-6360242 or you can e-mail me at jcuddy@cllr.galwaycoco.ie

They speak to me of sweet Tralee And lovely lakes of Killarney, But I know where I’d rather be – On the slopes of Zakopane.

They tell me too of Galway Bay, With Irish ‘craic’ and Blarney, Whilst I dream of far away, Of snows on Zakopane.

When I leave grey Athenry

A Celtic god told my soul

And dear old Ballinsloe,

I heard him say so plainly,

To home I’ll fly where ‘tis dry,

Go home go home, wandering Pole,

And twenty degrees below!

Go home to Zakopane!

To smell again the Baltic pines

Goodbye to Irish fields so green

And every day won’t be rainy,

Where winds are wet and stormy,

Oh, for the cold sun that shines

To home I’ll take a nice colleen,

On the mountains of Zakopane.

Finnula - to wed in Zakopane.

Once more to fish under ice

To see the snow in moonlights glow

On the mighty frozen Vistula,

With summers dry and balmy,

For us it will be paradise -

Where the damp winds do not blow,

For me and dear Finnula.

On the slopes of Zakopane.

Claregalway Tidy Towns: A look at two past winners Sean Flanagan, Claregalway Tidy Towns Committee On a gloriously sunny Wednesday, October 14th last, representatives of the Claregalway Tidy Towns committee travelled to Birdhill and Emly, both in Co.Tipperary, to get a taste of these award winning towns. The purpose of this ‘trip to Tipp’ was to see and discuss what it takes to participate successfully in the widely acclaimed national Tidy Towns Competition. The main features that grabbed attention are described in this report. Although writing in itself does not capture the visual aspects and results, it will be evident that the amount of voluntary work delivered at these scenic locations was huge. Birdhill First impressions usually stick in the memory and this is certainly the case on arrival in Birdhill. Located on the N7 about half-way between Nenagh and Limerick, Birdhill has less than 200 households including shops, pub, etc. The very busy N7 carriageway splits the village. Main features: The Built Environment Stone buildings showing

a high degree of craftsmanship, stone wall boundaries exposed and restored, farm gates painted and hanging on stone pillars, high walls covered with colourful climbers. Trees Rows of mature broadleaf trees extending along the N7 from the village into the countryside, creating a rich backdrop setting. Landscape Open green spaces show vivid evidence of care and attention, planted with colourful shrubs, flower beds framed in stone work surroundings, many large flower boxes on windows and poles. The village pump with associated

stonework and wooden seat for 4 is a focal point. Roadside Management The grass margins into and through the village and the greens in the centre of the village are cut by the Co.Council on an ongoing basis. Waste Management There was a complete absence of litter and rubble. The bottle bank was installed underground. No Advertising Signs on Poles or Footpaths The rule on advertisement signs and posters is simple and applies to everybody: No signs or posters are allowed on poles or footpaths.

interests comply for the greater good. Heritage Feature A fine touch of Tipperary heritage associated with Charles J. Kickham and Knocknagow was evident at Matt the Thrasher’s B & B (pictured). A FÁS worker is available The involvement and inputs from the local schools, teachers and pupils are crucial and highly valued. The committee meets once monthly and once weekly from April through the summer. Their 2009 budget amounted to €20,000 generated by fund raising campaigns and assisted by European funding. Emly - Top Prize Winner 2009 Somewhat off the beaten track, Emly is a small town with a population of 800, just inside the Tipperary county boundary with Limerick on the R515, a few miles from Hospital and historic Knocklong. Less scenic than Birdhill but after 22 years participation in the Tidy Towns Competition, committee activist Denis Heffernan is well versed on what it takes to impress judges of Tidy Towns. Main talking points are: Plan A town renewal programme was undertaken with FÁS participation. A 3 to 5 year plan and the jobs to 12

be done to make the plan work are fundamental. To engage with the Co.Council and to decide on what it can deliver is part of the plan.

Top: A heritage feature in the village of Birdhill.

Derelict Sites Some sites are problematic. One wet ground site in the town, to the dismay of the Emly committee,

was assigned by the Co. Council for yet more housing. In the time lapse that followed, Denis and his helpers took it upon themselves to do something with the site. They began to landscape it and eventually planted it with moisture tolerant shrubs. The housing project was scrapped and it is now a »

permanent feature and adds to the natural amenity. Biodiversity The plan included initiatives to bring environmental influences from the countryside into the town. Biodiversity is an important part of this process, e.g. marigolds to attract butterflies were evident. Heritage The 18th Century Gothic church stands in glory overlooking the town, has a splendid façade and many fine stained glass windows. Now in the Diocese of Cashel and Emly, Emly itself was a cathedral town up the 16th century. There is a church caretaker who is paid by the church. The committee plants and manages the flower beds in the church grounds. Emly’s native sons and daughters who made headlines in foreign lands

down through history are remembered on a sculptured monument erected by the Co.Council outside the church grounds. The names are inscribed and include local men who lost their lives in the US Army during the Korean War. Sensory Garden This initiative is special, a good example of innovative ideas that can emerge in setting up a plan. Wheel chair friendly, the garden is to the rear of the church grounds and planted in quadrant form with spring, summer, autumn and winter shrubs that flower as the seasons turn. Built Environment Corner buildings on the streetscape are painted in strong colours to hit the eye. If a derelict building cannot be restored, it is painted grey or black to

take the focus off it. Ugly walls are unseen due to screening with abundant climbers including Virginia Creeper. Overhead wires have been replaced with underground cabling. Waste management No litter was to be seen. The bottle bank was screened off by a hedge and the site showed evidence of care and attention. Information board A large chart with information for visitors is mounted in a position of prominence, including town map and heritage trail. Signage Names on shops and buildings had a uniformity in size, shape and traditional style. For the most part, they appeared to be hand painted, with care in the choice of colour to blend in with the surroundings. There was a complete absence of mega-size plastic/neon tubing panels that can so often blot attractive streets. With Tipp native Joe Horgan enthusiastically leading the way and in the company of chairperson Josette Farrell, the day was both informative and enjoyable. Summary A plan is a must. Make best use of existing features.
