As 2017 heads into the home straight, the forward-thinking Kilmuckridge Tidy Towns committee are already looking ahead to next year, and they recently launched their 2018 calendar.

The calendar, which includes some of the entries submitted in a recent photographic competition, was launched in Hammel's lounge last week by Cllr Mary Farrell.

The photographic competition held in the KMH over Easter weekend. It was run by Kilmuckridge Tidy Towns and Mary Atkins of The Photo Shop, Gifts and Groceries, Kilmuckridge, and the best entries were selected to feature in the calendar.

Also present at the launch evening was Mary's mother Peg Dempsey, who, like Mary, was a founder member of Kilmuckridge Tidy Towns some 40 years ago.

Mary said that the Tidy Towns group is very special to her as her late father Owen was also a member of the original committee.

The calendar is on sale for €5 in local shops. All proceeds go towards the upkeep of the village. All support is appreciated.
