Scrap Metal Collection
Ardcroney Community Field committee is organising a scrap metal collection to fund ongoing development of the facility. Kilruane MacDonaghs second pitch, which is used continuously throughout the year by various club and camogie teams, is located there. Its maintenance and development are of crucial importance to the club. The committee will collect a variety of metal, iron or steel items including machinery, cars, bicycles, gates, radiators, barrels, containers and utensils. No item is too big or too small. You can contact George O’ Leary 0871222816, Kay Cahalan 0879059592 and Philip Heenan 0872887830 who will arrange collection of donated items. The deadline for collection is this Saturday January 14th. Note that non metallic items will not be accepted.
