As we head into the final hurdle of 2018, the forward-thinking Kilmuckridge Tidy Town committee are already looking ahead to next year and have launched their 2019 calendar.

The calendar, which includes 'Now and Then' pictures that people of the community submitted, was launched in Hammel's lounge last week by local councillor Mary Farrell.

The collection of old photographs represents Kilmuckridge down through the years, recalling on people and places. It was run by Kilmuckridge Tidy Towns in conjunction with Mary Atkins of The Photo Shop and they received more than 40 pictures for the calendar.

'We placed a couple for each month,' said Aideen Hayes, who is PRO for Kilmuckridge Tidy Towns.

The calender would not be possible only for the hard working Tidy Towns committee of Aideen, John Herne, Iris McMenamin, Sam Peya, Betty Walsh, Derek Vaughn, Niall D'Arcy, Bob Hammel, Anne Marie Hammel, Leslie Stephens, Aideen Hayes and Shane Forsey.

Kilmuckridge Tidy Towns was founded some 40 years ago and is one of the longest serving organisations in the village. Aideen said they are always seeking members to join and would love to see some new faces for the coming year.

The calender is on sale for €5 in local shops. All proceeds go towards the upkeep of the village. All support is greatly appreciated. For more information call Aideen on 087 7857237.
