Dunnamaggin Development Group unfortunately due to the inclement weather last weekend we had to cancel and reschedule the Barn Dance to a date still to be decided in August. Our next market will take place on July 31st.
In the meantime with funding received from Kilkenny County Council’s Amenity Fund we are developing a Remembrance Walk through the trees to the side of St Leonard’s Church. This inclusive, reflective, meditative space will remember all those we have lost, particularly those who have died during the pandemic and especially those we could not grieve for in the usual Irish way due to the restrictions in place at the time. We are hosting a planning meeting to listen to the thoughts and ideas of all the residents of the Dunnamaggin Parish area. This will take place on Tuesday July 5th at 7pm starting at the church. We would encourage young and old to attend and share with us how they envisage the Remembrance Walk.
We would laos like to acknowledge funding received the Community Development Fund to pay for our insurance costs. This grant is invaluable enabling DDG to host the monthly markets and other events in the community.
