They are seeking permission to build a pontoon. Great to see new life coming to the river now that fishing seems to have come to a standstill.
R.I.P. Ann Lyons
When I was promoting my recent book, one of the places I called to was Ann Lyons shop in Abbeyfeale. It was one of the loveliest experiences of my book tour. This old fashioned sweet shop was a joy to enter. I’m calling it a sweet shop but it really was so much more. The two lovely ladies, Ann and Mary, who ran it were welcoming, kind and generous.
I was very saddened to hear that Ann has passed away and the shop is closing. She will be sorely missed. Ní fheicfimid a leithéid arís.
