' THE HILLS of North Wexford', a 2013 calendar featuring scenes from Kilanerin, Ballyfad and surrounding areas, has proven such a success that it is already gone to reprint.

Fionntán Ó Súilleabháin captured most of the images in the past year, and is delighted with the response from locals to date. Some of North Wexford's finest vistas are featured in the calendar, which was launched last week.

All proceeds from calendar sales go towards the new sports hall in Kilanerin-Ballyfad. 'I did the calendar through KilanerinBallyfad Community Development Association,' said Fionntán. ' There's been a great reaction to it so far. I don't think I got enough printed, as it's selling very quickly. We'll try to have them back on the shelves within a week.'

'People have also said they want to send them abroad,' he added. The calendar is tied in with The Gathering 2013.

More of Fionntán's images are available for viewing at www.lovegorey.ie.

The calendar is selling at €8, and is available in Kilanerin, Ballyfad and Ballythomas schools, and in local shops and pubs.

Fionntán hopes that several more Gorey shops will sell them once copies are available.
