Laragh Glendalough Notes Week Beg 13th Nov 2023

Laragh & Glendalough Tidy Towns

The adjudicator’s for the Tidy Town’s 2023 Competition was very positive this year. Our mark increased by 10 points. Particular areas in our community of commendation were; the very impressive litter free areas despite the large amount of tourists present at the time of judging in late June; Very little dog fouling apparent; The Citizen Science project testing water quality in our local rivers; The new Heritage trail and leaflet produced, now available in Mc Coy’s shop; tidy residential housing estates. Recommendation that the white lines at the pedestrian crossing close to the school be repainted as not all traffic observed slowing down on Glendalough road.

Good public seating for walkers and families on village approach roads.

Well done and thank you to all our hard working volunteers and residents on this very positive report. (Any enquiries contact us at

Damaged Tree

WCC assessed the internally rotten tree on the village green and deemed it unsafe with a risk of falling and causing injury. Thankfully WCC organised the removal of this tree and nobody was injured or accident caused. Tidy Towns have planted 2 Mountain Ash trees in this space.

Rewilding Wicklow

Rewilding Wicklow would like to work collaboratively with LAragh Glendalough Tidy Towns to plant trees in and around our community. Please let us know your ideas as to where these trees might be planted. All suggestions are welcome.

Yoga with Louise

Vinyasa Krama Yoga (step-by-step). Classes are from 10am to 11.20 in the Brockagh Resource Centre, Laragh.

The practice will provide gentle stretching, improved strength and flexibility, as well as help students to find balance and calm in everyday life. Louise takes students through Asana, Pranayama and Meditation for a full Yoga practice.

Chair Yoga

Classes are from 11.30am to 12.30 in the Brockagh Resource Centre, Laragh.

Chair Yoga is suitable for those who find a regular yoga class too strenuous, are recovering from injury or illness or are generally less active and mobile. Louise's classes include physical poses (asana), breathing practices (pranayama) and relaxation and meditation. There is some standing work which is optional and done next to the chair.
