The planned Mallow Pigeon race from Penzance in the south of England was cancelled last weekend due to very bad weather conditions. The minute draw this week was drawn from the drum and the €50 winner was Cathena Mullane. The €10 lucky dip winners were Pat Healy, Quartertown and Alan O'Leary.
MAYORS NOEL AND JOHNNY
Two Mallow men reached new heights in their political careers when Councillor Johnny 'Bottles' Griffin made history by being elected Mallow Town's last Mayor at a special meeting in the Town Hall chamber on Thursday evening last and, just hours later, outgoing Mallow Mayor Noel O'Connor was presented in Cork City with his chain of office as the new Cork County Mayor. We wish both councillors a succesful year in office.
