Christmas Tree Festival at the Methodist Chruch, Donegal Town.  We were in town the day before this started so we missed it.  We read that it was well attended and they extended it for one day.  Unfortunately we couldn't attend.  Killybegs had one of these events a few years back, hopefully it will return this year so we can attend.

Trees range from showcasing the creative skills of community groups to businesses entering themed trees relative to their  trade. There are also a number of thought-provoking entries which have led to much conversation among the visitors. Entries have been created by people of all ages, from school children and up to many adult groups. The massive range of entries means that there really is something for everyone to enjoy.
Those who attend can also enjoy hot drinks, home bakes and a chance to sit and chat with other visitors.

school crossing

creating a safer area for the school kids to cross the street when arriving or leaving.  Parents drop off their kids on either side of the road depending on which way they are coming.

dropping the tar for the new footpath across from the school.

workers spreading the tar

looking good!

finishing the area right in front of the school

the new improved area in front of the school.  All that is left to do is create a crosswalk and install a light so students can safely cross the road.  Right now the students just cross the road when they have a chance.  This is a major road for lots of traffic including big trucks.  Better to be safe than sorry.

convenient neighbors

O'Hehirs Bakery and Little Mamma's Ice Cream Parlour, the perfect match!  We have been in O'hehirs and they have some great breads, desserts and coffee.  Haven't been in the ice cream place yet but I'm not a big ice cream fan.

dunkineely an post

was closed down after an appeal lodged by the local community was rejected.  The closure was a part of a restructuring plan.
An Post have committed as part of the reformed network that communities with populations of over 500 people would have a post office, and 95 per cent of the population would always be within 15km of at least one post office.
The community is not happy.  The older folks go to the post to pick up their pensions,, pay bills and other things.  They probably don't have reliable internet access which makes it a bit tougher to pay bills online and now if they don't have transportation, they have to find a way to get to a post office designated to their area.  The an post building these people will be going to is in Bruckless 3 km away.  It's far enough that an older person wouldn't be able to walk and lack of a footpath just about makes it impossible.  They will need to arrange a ride which could be a problem for some of them.
