Listowel’s very own Hollywood has arrived to the market yard.

It’s a pity that the weather is letting us down but spirits are high. There is a good buzz in town. Shops are busy and the hurdy gurdies were going all night last night. Ruby Walsh is making his comeback on the racecourse so we are set for good week. There are lots of the old on-street attractions which had been missing for a few years making a return too. There will be a barman’s race, a wheelie bin race and live entertainment on a gig rig. There is also a novel jockeys, bookies and uncle Tom Cobbly and all type football match planned. That could be a hoot!
