Shannonside Annual

For a few years in the 1950s a highlight of the year for local people was the Shannonside Annual, packed with excellent articles and poems.

Here is the Foreward to the first edition in 1956


The Beginning of The Next Listowel Characters Mural

And the finished artwork

Cormac and Louise of Mack Signs posed for me at the end of their week of long days and evenings of hard work on the latest Listowel Characters mural; August 14 2021.

I like it. It has a kind of old fashioned feel to it.


A Monday Verse

There was a young lady of Niger

Who rode on the back of a tiger; 

They came back from the ride

With the lady inside

And a smile on the face of the tiger
