A little bit off-topic perhaps. Are people out there wondering the same thing as myself? The improvements – road widening and new pavements – between the first and second Sea Roads, is taking forever.

I stand to be corrected, but I believe this work to be in progress now at least 4 years. The current phase of development – new walls, pavements, etc – is ongoing for at least the last 18 months.

I wonder how many people actually ring the Borough Council and enquire as to finish dates for projects like this? Frustrated, I took some video footage on my mobile a few weeks back (travelling into Sligo town).

Disclaimer : Yes I know – I should not really be doing this while driving…



We are looking for interested individuals to contribute articles to the Strandhill Online website. If you are a local, a blow in, or even somebody associated with the area but living elsewhere – we would love to have your input.

As you can probably guess, we are interested in contributions on local news, events, history and heritage of the area and local issues; that’s what we have writing about up to now – maybe you have a different take?

Also, we are more than happy to publicise events that happening locally – fundraising campaigns, meetings and so on.

Even though we have had a few opinion pieces in the past – in the future, we will NOT be a soapbox for any specific side of an argument or debate; however, we are happy to link to places that articulate particular points of view on a topic.

Drop an email to info [at] strandhillonline.com and tell us what you would like to write about.



The closing date for applications for funding from the Sligo County Council Art Grants is 15th February.

The Sligo Arts eBulletin for February (download here) lists a range of ‘Calls for Applications’ for grants and bursary opportunities from the Sligo Arts Department, The Arts Council and others, that are relevant for individual artists as well as groups.

This clothing collection flyer arrived in the letter box this morning – they’re really beginning to annoy me at this stage.

No charity number or indeed mention of charity – only the word “donation”. The mobile number or VAT registration number (why??) provided are not real.

These flyers are being collated by Donncha on clothing collection – these particular doves are down in Cork as well it seems.

If you really do want to give unwanted clothes to charity, then bring them to SVP or other recognised charity shop
