Tidy Town’s

Pride of Place presentations to the adjudicators took place on Tuesday last. Special thanks to all who worked so hard to present their premises (lived in or not) to a very high standard - and to all who kept the kerbs litter free and grass manicured. We were selected, we ran the race and did all we could, and now it is wait and see. Thanks to all who spoke on behalf of their community group- the first time all parish groups (Sports/Active Age /Snr. Citizens /Community Centre/ Marquee Festival & Drumlish Enhancement, were under one roof giving an account of what they do - The adjudicators did point out that Pride of Place is the only forum where this happens. The presentations were as interesting as they were different and made for interesting reflection. It was a happy day for all who took part including the senior classes of St. Mary’s NS who welcomed the party with their few tunes on the tin whistles in the outdoor sunshine at the beautifully landscaped beds at the Community Centre.


Public Lecture on one of Drumlishs’ most famous sons, William O’Higgins who was born in Barraghbeg and who laid the foundation stone for that ‘glorious undertaking’ - St. Mel’s Cathedral in the 1840s - The lecture will take place on the 15th October in Drumlish Community Centre and is part of the Longford Historical Society series of Autumn Lectures.

Lost Cat

He was spotted in a housing estate in Drumlish very recently and if anyone has seen ‘Bucko’ or can be of any assistance, can they please contact 086 1525902 or 086 8304131. Thank you.
