What else is happening right now!


Claremorris Visual Artists exhibition, which has been in the library since Culture Night, is being transferred to Claremorris Gallery the 26th Oct. It's well worth checking out and we hope we'll have them exhibit again in the library.

Claremorris Community Radio has been busy and will be even busier moving to their new premises in the not too distant future. I continue to do my voice and vision show on Fridays at 4pm with them, which is worth a listen.

GOA Claremorris walking club are still going strong, every Wednesday at 6pm from the Curam and Saturday morning at 9.30am from McMahon Park, even though numbers are down since I stopped texting everyone to get of their asses.(GOA)

We continue to organise events with locals for the benefit of our community's cultural legacy to the next generation. So if you've got an idea about something we could do, please let us know. Thanks.

 That's it folks. Short and sweet as I've things to do.
