Development Work: Another stage in the on-going development work by Donagh Development Association at Emy Lake has been completed and the official opening of the New Gates at the Car Park area was carried out on Saturday, July 11th at 10.00am. At the event the Keys of the New Gate was presented by Gerard Kelly of GK Steelworks, to Francie Watterson, who has been the contractor for the recent developments of the Beach and the walls and pillars at the gateway. He in turn presented the Keys to Chairman of the DDA, John Shery. Present were Minister Heather Humphreys; Councillors Seamus Treanor (Mayor of Monaghan Municipal District), Brian McKenna and Paudge Connolly; Paul Clerkin (Monaghan Co Co.); Dearbhla and Stephen Kelly; DDA committee members and a number of locals who use the Walkway. The group then moved to the beach area where Chairman, John Sherry, thanked all involved in the project including Gerard Kelly for his excellent work on producing the gates and archway; Francie Watterson for the terrific development work, which was carried out to plan and within the time frame; to the members of the committee with special mention to Aiden McKenna, Bridie Sherry, emyvale.net, Mary Flynn and Northern Standard, the CE workers; Raymond Kelly; Monaghan County Council; and Minister Humphreys. He also thanked the walkers, who accepted the closure, for Health and Safety reasons, of the Walkway during the development work. Aiden McKenna, Walkway manager, thanked John Sherry for his tremendous work in organising the developments and ensuring the successful completion of the work. In reply Minister Humphreys congratulated the DDA committee for the fantastic work they have done in providing such a marvellous facility for the community. It was certainly appreciated by big numbers during the Covid19 restrictions of the past few months. She also thanked Monaghan Co Co and the Councillors for their support of the project and their help by working with the Committee to provide this wonderful and important addition in the community. She said that the project was a credit to all involved. A number of those present then completed walk around the lake.
Annual Walk: Our Annual Walk Around the Lake will take place on Sunday 2nd August 2020. We look forward to seeing all the folk who use the Lake Walk supporting this on the day between 7am to 8pm. Donations will be gratefully accepted on the day. We will be making a donation to the Red Cross from the proceeds of the day.  Work is ongoing around the lake. The seats have been painted thanks to the CE Scheme workers. More sand will be put in place at the swimming area when the present sand gets bedded in. We are looking forward to the gates being erected which will give the entrance a whole new look.
