Holocaust Memorial in The Garden of Europe

This is the only memorial to the Nazi Holocaust currently erected on the island of Ireland. It looks lovely in summer 2017…. a great place to stop and think and count your blessings.

At the Tim Kennelly Roundabout

The roundabout at the top of Cahirdown is dedicated to the late Kerry footballer, Tim Kennelly. It is at the entrance to Kenny Heights. This residential estate is named after the previous owners of the land on which the houses stand. It is a particularly picturesque corner of Listowel.


Mo Léan!

What an irony. Lios Tuathail is  misspelled on this sign for the Gaelscoil at Upper Church St.

It’s correctly spelled on the reverse of the same sign. Quality control, where are you?
