Father and Son from the John Hannon Archive
Forget Clouseau, Poirot, Miss Marple and the No. 1 Ladies detective agency. When the Listowel Connection network gets working on the case they leave no stone unturned. Many people identified A.T. Chute and Violet McCarthy but the second man and the two ladies were a mystery. The grapevine has gone into overdrive and through the intervention of Beta Whelan, Junior Griffin, and the super sleuth when it comes to identifying Listowel people, Margaret Dillon, we can now say with certainty that the man behind on the right is Charlie McCarthy. His son, Danny, confirmed his father's identity. The fact that he wasn't wearing his glasses threw most people but not Margaret.
Listowel Community Centre Revamp
When I visited last week the front of the Community Centre was painted and there was scaffolding all round the side.
The reception area was gutted and the shop is relocated. I was delighted to see the same smiling face, Mike Molyneaux, behind the counter .
Hard Working Tidy Town Volunteers
I was in The Square at around 7.00 p. m. last evening and I met this happy crew setting out on their weekly tidy up. Years of relentless hard work and dedication is what it takes to win a gold medal.
