Every Tuesday night until mid September, a group of locals meets from 7 pm to help improve the look of the village of Askamore. There are always jobs to be done, from litter-picking to gate painting, general tidying of verges / ditches etc.

The local community garden is based in the garden of the priest’s house and everyone is welcome to come help with planting, sowing, maintenance and many other projects.

There’s always a cuppa afterwards for everyone in the kitchen of the priest’s house and the work is always sociable – work with a bit of craic thrown in.

Everyone is welcome at any time to join in.

LOCATION: Askamore village

The above website allows you to volunteer your services online, or just turn up at the car park or the priest’s house every Tuesday. You won’t be sent away!

Askamore Countryside Challenge – tomorrow @ 2 pm


For tomorrow’s Askamore Countryside Challenge, walkers are to congregate and register in Askamore Community Centre from 1 pm. They will then be brought to the walk start, at Parkside pub in Camolin village.
The walk, scheduled for a 2 pm start, is on-road, coming across the side of Sliabh Bhui, through Ballyduff village. It’s a mainly easy to moderate walk, with about 1.3 km of a tough pull.
Walkers may also decide to start half-way and that starting point is the church car-park in Ballyduff.
Refreshments will be served to walkers in the Community Centre in Askamore at end of walk.
Sponsorship cards still available – in aid of St. Aidan’s Daycare, Gorey and Askamore Muintir na Tire Project 2020.
