22nd January 2015
End of an era in Sneem
On January 2nd, Bridie Mangan closed the door of her Post Off ice for the last
time af ter 57 years serving the people of Sneem behind her counter. While we
were all sad to see this happen, we wish Bridie very many happy years in her
new lif e. We would like to thank her two co-workers, Bridie Fitzgerald and Mary
Sheehan f or all their helpf ulness and kindness over the years and wish them well
in whatever comes their way.
As the saying goes, “Every cloud has a silver lining."
While many villages throughout rural Ireland are losing
their Post Offices we are lucky enough to have retained
ours. We would like to wish John Damien and Grace every success in their new roles as Post master and Post
mistress. Above photo by Willie McClure, South Kerry
Advertiser. Pictured right: Bridie being presented with a

Dog Fouling
Dog fouling is becoming an unsightly and dangerous problem within the village, on
the pavements, the greens and in t he Garden of the Senses. The participants on
the C.E. Scheme are coming across it when they are strimming and it gets thrown
up onto their f aces. This is a serious healt h and saf ety issue. Also our children
when playing on the grass are particularly vulnerable and are at risk of getting one
of the many inf ectious diseases associated with dog f aeces. It can cause stomach
upsets and more dangerous complaints like toxocariasis. Some responsible dog
owners have been observed picking up their dogs litter with a suitable bag we ask
that all dog owners follow their example. It is a f ineable offence, under section 22
of the litter pollution Act 1997, to not pick up your dog litter. The County Council are
in the process of providing Sneem with two anti-dog litter signs which will have a
container f or dog litter bags. We urge all dog owners to please avail of these and in
the meantime start to be responsible and considerate dog owners and get into the
habit of bringing a bag when you are taking your dog f or a walk.
Sneem Development
Due to the bad weather the meeting due to be held on the 15th January was postponed to the 21st. There will be updates f rom that meeting in the next issue of the
In the meantime, if you are interested in reading the three reports commissioned by
Sneem Development, we can e-mail them to you, or they can be viewed on line in
The Resource Cent re or we can print out hard copies at a small cost. The three
reports are: Sneem Village, Biodiversity Action Plan by Dr. Patrick Crushell, Community Tourism Strategic Action Plan by Boland Marketing and Towards A
Better Sneem by Stephen Newell. These reports were commissioned by Sneem
Development in order to give us working guidelines in the three categories - Tourism, Biodiversity and Village Improvement. In the report, Towards A Better Sneem,
you will notice some visual blackspots are highlighted. These problem areas need
to be addressed urgently bef ore the Next Tidy Town Judging. Our group is willing to
give advice or any help needed. Please contact one of our members.
Our f irst action using the reports as a guideline is to create a wildf lower meadow
along the river near the barbeque area. This will upgrade the biodiversity and create habitat for butterf lies, bats and insects. This in turn will provide food f or wild
"In order to prevent the future loss of biodiversity at a national and international level, it is crucial that the value of biodiversity be conveyed to the wider public and that
actions be tak en at a local level." Quote from Sneem Village Biodiversity Action.
