In this photo are (seated) Beverly & Tom Dillon from Bunbury, Western Australia. Tom is Joanne's first cousin. His father, John Dillon was originally from Dromerin, Listowel, Tom’s mother was Catherine Nolan (originally from Coilbee, Listowel). John & Catherine emigrated to Western Australia roughly in the late 1930s. They were with Joanne at John’s Italian Restaurant, East 12th Street, in Greenwich Village.
Fred Chute, master painter, did a lovely job of repainting at Altered Images on Church St. His work throughout the town has contributed hugely to the much commented on charming appearance of Listowel today.
I took this at the bridge on Tuesday last. There appeared to be bit of reconstruction underway.
