Progress at the Community Centre

They have roofed the extension.


Listowel Tennis

In preparation for the new season the club had power washed the courts. They are looking very inviting.

The clubhouse could do with an upgrade

My Favourite Listowel Shop

I love charity shops. They have lots of attractions that are lacking in other shops. They always stock a variety of goods and you never know when you will come across a treasure.

Another huge advantage of these shops is the calibre of people who volunteer in them. I have met the kindest, most patient shop assistants in charity shops.

My all time favourite of these boutiques is Second Time Around, the St. Vincent de Paul outlet on Upper William Street, Listowel.

It opens for business on Thursdays and Fridays from 11.00 a.m. It stocks a great quality variety of clothes, books, jewellery and brick a brac. Stock moves quickly here. If you like it buy it. It probably won’t be here when you come back.

One of the attractions of Second Time Around is the lovely shop assistants. Here are just a few of the many friendly, helpful volunteers.

Cathrina, Eileen, Marie and Kay were volunteering on Thursday afternoon March 2 2017

Nancy and Hannah posed for me with Miriam, who was dropping off a donation on March 4 2017
