A CALENDAR, celebrating the people that make the town of New Ross, will be launched this Thursday.
The 2013 ' The Heart of the Town' calendar, which is being launched by New Ross Chamber, features well-known local characters, streetscapes and shops fronts which are sure to jog many memories for Rossonians.
The calendar is inspired by the Facebook Group ' Things You Miss About New Ross' and proceeds will go towards New Ross St Vincent de Paul as well as the Chamber itself.
Among the photographs are the 1963 Confirmation class in Rosbercon, the 1966 Easter Parade, the St. Patrick's Day Parade in 1972 and The Quay in 1981 amongst many other fantastic shots of the town and its people.
The calendar will cost €10 and will make an ideal gift this Christmas, particularly for family and friends abroad.
It will be available in newsagents locally and from the Chamber offices. If anyone would like to sell the calendar they are asked to please contact the Chamber.
