Work on Teach na nDaoine gets under way

The Teach Na nDaoine Committee — Noel Clare, John Brady, Liz Maloney, Steve Kinneavy, Albert Keenan, Jacinta Sully and Deputy Martin Heydon.
The work on Kilcullen's Teach Na nDaoine project is now getting under way in earnest, with the committee getting a close look last week for the first time at what has to be done, writes Brian Byrne.

"We have decided on a deadline of June to get it opened," says Albert Keenan, who thought up the idea along with Jacinta Sully, John Brady and Steve Kinneavy.

The project has been strongly supported by local TD Martin Heydon, whose knowledge of the ins and outs of officialdom has helped move things forward on a number of occasions.

The building comprises three main rooms, a toilet, and a small kitchen area. A wall between two of the rooms will be taken out to provide a larger space.

Cleaning, repainting and general refurbishment is an urgency. If anyone is interested in helping, you can contact Deputy Heydon, Jacinta Sully, Albert Keenan, Steve Kinneavy or any committee member.
