A new commemorative library card has been launched by Sligo Library Service.

The Colonel William Gregory Wood-Martin card was specially commissioned by County Librarian Donal Tinney to mark the 100 year anniversary of the death of the famous Sligo author, historian and archaeologist and features a map of Sligo from his book "Sligo and the Enniskilleners".
