Official Opening of Path from St Fiach’s NS to Community Centre

The official opening of the new footpath which links St Fiachs NS and Ballinacree Community Centre was officially opened on 12th May 2017. The opening ceremony was conducted by our local PP Fr Philip O Connor and assisted by Fr Alo Connaughton.  The ceremony was attended by the Officers and Committee of the Community Association as well as local County Councillors.

The funding for this project came from Meath County Council.   The provision of this footpath has been sought for quite a while by the Community Association and will be a major safety benefit to both school children and  residents of the area. The work on the path was complemented by the landscaping of the surrounding areas with natural wild flowers as a visual and environmental amenity.

Finally a word of thanks to John Joe and Catherine Smith  and Pat Fagan for making portion of their property available for the development of the path.

Thanks also to the pupils of St Fiach’s NS for their lovely music and song and to Ballinacree ICA for the provision of refreshments.
