Christmas Comes Early to Cork

Brown Thomas on Patrick Street, Cork, skipped right over Halloween and went straight to Christmas. I took this photo on October 26th 2018. 

Meanwhile on the street the Jazz Festival Halloween Parade was getting started.


Sowing the seeds of Tidy Town Success.

Before there was a Listowel Tidy Towns Committee there was TABLE.

This picture from 1994 shows Ned O’Sullivan, chairman of TABLE planting a tree in Feale Drive. He is watched by JoanMcCarthy, John O’Keeffe, Bill Walsh, Michael O’Connor, Krystal and Jackie Stack, Ann Sloan, Christy Hartnett and Eileen Worts.

TABLE was established in 1992. It was the Listowel Tidy Town Committee in all but name. It’s first work was flower baskets and tree planting and the encouragement of everyone to get behind the movement to promote  Listowel and to do well in the then Bord Fáilte Tidy Town competition.

The officers of TABLE in 1994 were Ned O’Sullivan, Cathal Fitzgerald, Mary Hanlon, Anne Hartnett, Sr. Kathleen and Louis O’Connell.
