Owners – Please
There has been an increase in dog fouling in the village
of Clonegal. Clonegal Tidy Village Association asks dog owners
to restrain their dogs and not allow them roam freely through
the village. Also, dog owners who walk their dogs in the village
are asked to pick up after their dogs. Unfortunately, dog fouling
has occurred on graves and wreaths in the Cemetery on the Tullow
Road. Everybody realizes that this is very upsetting for families
who have loved ones buried in the Cemetery. Please ensure dogs
do not enter the Graveyard. Dog litter is toxic and is very
dangerous particularly to children. In the interest of health
and safety, please keep Clonegal Village and the Cemetery free
of dog fouling.

Presented by: Dr Malie Coyne, Best-selling author, Clinical
Psychologist, Lecturer at NUI Galway, Infant Mental Health
Advocate and Mental Health Advisory Panel for A Lust for
Worrying and parenting go hand in hand, especially during
times of change, and the return to school after summer break
can bring simmering anxieties to the surface for children,
teenagers and parents alike.

she will speak
about the anxiety children face in returning to school, and
share practical suggestions using her SAFE compassionate
approach from her critically acclaimed book 'Love in, Love
Out: A compassionate approach to parenting your anxious child'.

a sense of reassurance as a parent and some very practical
tools to help you and your children.
