  • On Saturday 31th October, Cox’s Demesne Community Volunteers organised an event aimed at bringing the community together and letting them know about the work that they had been doing over the past five months to promote volunteering and improve the area.

    The Haunted House was supported by many local agencies including Louth County Council, Louth Volunteer Centre, Redeemer Family Resource Centre and Cox’s Demesne Community & Youth Project.

    In the lead up to Halloween, volunteers ran art classes with the after school groups in ‘The House’ to make gravestones to be put in the garden for the Halloween event.  Both the Redeemer Boys and Girls National schools also took part, by encouraging all students to take part in in a Halloween art competition. Prizes were donated for three winners in each school by Pirates Den, Dundalk FC, Hallmark, Easons, Penneys and Boots.

    Halloween GroupOver 30 volunteers helped to make the day a success performing tasks such as sending out leaflets, sourcing props, recruiting volunteers, face-painting, taking part in the haunted house as actors and tour guides.

    The Haunted House was very well attended with over 200 children attending on the day. Each child was charged €1 to enter. The total raised was €200.50 and £2.50.

    The proceeds are to be divided between Cox’s Demesne Community & Youth Project and Cox’s Demesne Community Volunteers to go towards their Christmas event.

    Cox’s Demesne Community Volunteers have been working hard to bring people together and help to improve the estate in recent months. The group hope to target a number of areas that have become notorious for illegal dumping and so have become overgrown and dangerous. The first clean-up was held in the Beechmount drive area last Tuesday morning. The volunteers were supported by both council workers and local CE workers to get the job done. They were also supported by thirteen staff, interns and volunteers from Louth Volunteer Centre, many of whom travelled from Drogheda to help out as part of a team volunteering day, and two county councillors, Maeve Yore and Edel Corrigan. Kayleigh Mulligan, from Louth Volunteer Centre, has been working closely with residents in the area since May to help revive volunteering in the area said that “while the clean-up was a huge success on the day, we really need to stress the importance of getting more local people on board with making improvements to the area if we are to be successful in the long term.” She also acknowledged the dedication of the four local volunteers that have been the driving force behind getting this work done, Charlie O’Brien, Fergal Sheehy, Ciarán McIntyre and Anthony Heeney. This environmental project is the second event run by these volunteers. On 29th August they organised the free family day named El Paso Party, which was very well attended with over 150 children on the day with their families.
