New Old Pictures of Collooney and Ballisodare

I have added some new pictures of Collooney from the past that I received all the way from

Illinois from Robert Mc Kim. They are of great interest and some of them we are not sure if they are of Ballisodare. Hopefully someone will recognize where?

Collection for Tidy Towns

Tidy towns had a church gate collection on 8th and 9th of June and we collected €310. Thank you to all who contributed. We are in the process cleaning up the town and we are asking all to take care of their own areas. The competition forms have gone in and we are hoping that we will get an increase in points.

Collooney is disgusted

We are all disgusted here in Collooney to hear what happened to Eugene Gillespie who was murdered in his home in Market Street.  Horrified might be a better word.

Allotments Collooney

We are disappointed that  we have not got our allotments up and running yet.  We live in hope that come the springtime we will be have better news. At the moment we are waiting for a meeting with Dorothy Clark to explain our case.


There is a meeting of the tidy towns in the Teeling centre on Wednesday at 8pm.  New members are welcome.  Now that the winter is coming in we want to make plans to maintain our town.
