A very Happy 2012 to all my readers.

Privatisation has come to Listowel Town Council. All the town council refuse bins are now rebranded with the KWD logo. Soon a Listowel Town Council bin will be a relic of another era.

The site of the old mart is cleared for development. This is how it looked on a wet December day.


A feature of the recession is the emergence of the “pop up shop”.

These are two examples of the phenomenon in Listowel.
