Another Feather in Listowel’s Cap

Yesterday Feb. 27 2020 I was in Listowel Town Square on my way to Carroll’s of Course to pick up a lamp they had so kindly ordered for me  when I spotted Darren Enright busy at work in the Tidy Town trophy corner of town. He was putting in place the accolade Listowel received for achieving a silver medal in the Entente Florale competition. The official unveiling of this takes place on Saturday at 2.00 and everyone is welcome.



Cahirciveen is a town full of history. Even on a cold wet weekend in February 2020 with many shops closed for the off season, its appeal is obvious.

Quirke’s is a lovely bookshop run by Colman who is passionate about books. His stock is small but carefully chosen.. He even has A Minute of Your Time.

Unveiliing of the Nuns’ Statue

On a snowy Sunday in December 2010 Bishop Bill Murphy unveiled Listowel’s memorial to the nuns who have given so much to the town. They came in Famine times and fed and clothed the starving and sick of the parish. They have educated the town’s young ladies for decades and are still giving service today.

Jimmy Deenihan who worked hard on this project whips the tarpaulin from the sculpture.
