Plant Sale at Glin Castle

On Sunday May 12 2019 people got a rare chance to wander around the grounds of Glin Castle. Some people did come for the plants.

Elizabeth Brosnan shared the photos on Facebook.



Here are a few random photos of Ballybunion. I think they are self explanatory.


Church Street Mural

I pass the Church Street/Ashe Street mural almost every day and only last week I actually read this quotation from Bryan MacMahon;

“I harboured the absurd notion of motivating a small town in Ireland, a speck on the map, to become a centre of the imagination.”

That is just what Listowel has become, a centre of the imagination. We will see evidence of that next week when the 49th Listowel Writers’ Week swings into life. Joseph O’Connor will open proceedings on Wedneday evening, May 29 2019. Musical entertainment will be provided by Liam O’Connor. Our own Danny Hannon will be presented with a well deserved lifetime achievement in the Arts award. This will only be the start of what promises to be a hectic few days.


Limerick and Clare Radio Club

Eddie Moylan ( far left) gave Limerick and Clare Radio Club members a tour of his vintage wireless museum on Saturday last. They were very impressed.


Listowel Writers’ Week

These people were here last year. Look out for them this year.
