Another Memorable Irish Industry

Buildings Praised

The report of the Tidy Town judging for 2023 is available in the library.

It makes interesting reading. The judges loved the colour scheme on this building. Purtill, Woulfe, Murphy Solicitors.

They also praised Listowel Primary Care Centre.

The report also stated that the old mart site has been recently sold. This was news to me.

The report on the whole was full of praise and admiration for the hard work of our Tidy Town Committee and Listowel Businesses and community.


Presentation Secondary School

It was Sunday when I was taking my walk in this area. The usually busy school yard was quiet.

I have long admired this beautiful old horse chestnut tree. What a tale it could tell!
