It seems a long time ago, but last January it was suggested to Bernard Lynch and myself that some funding from the Cork County Council Community Grant fund might be available to supplement the contributions made by the swimmers for the buoys in Myrtleville. We got helpful input from Eamonn Mullally and Cllr. Seamus McGrath and submitted the application just in time for Covid19 to shut us all down 🙂
Today we got news that €2,000 had been allocated to Myrtleville Swimmers for the buoys. Thanks to any councillors who supported this. We will now be able to fund the buoys and maintenance for the foreseeable future, without having to ask for donations again.
The suppliers of the buoys in the UK are only back to work a week or so. We are awaiting updates on delivery but chasing them for the earliest opportunity. We will update on this as soon as possible in the next few days. In the meantime, swim safe.
