Keep Wexford Beautiful awards 2018

We were delighted to win Gold Standard awards last night for taking part in the “2018 North Wexford 2k Clean”

Thank you to everyone who helped to clean up their areas & who got involved during our clean up weekends.

This is a fantastic achievement for Askamore and we couldn’t do it without your help!

Weekend plans???

If you have nothing planned for this weekend, you might like to take a trip to Askamore where The School House Bar will be open from 7.00pm on Saturday evening.

Plenty of drinks promotions to be had plus don’t forget – draught guinness is back and at only €4.50, it’s a bargain! Lots more including Gordon’s pink gin & Orchard Thieves cider.

There’s even a beer garden! What are you waiting for? Clear the diaries and head for Askamore!

ASKAMORE JOURNAL 5

With some gentle persuasion and some not-so-subtle hints, a working group of Askamore Community Council is planning the fifth edition of Askamore Journal.

The editorial committee are now seeking photographs from earliest times up to and including the year 2000, of any occasion, topic or event – weddings, communions, school groups, weather extremes, sport, etc etc. Any photograph within the period on any subject will be welcome.

Also being sought are poems, articles, or any text on the general area which would reflect a slice of life in the 20th century.

Memorial cards up to the present time are particularly welcome.

Please contact any of the following if you would like to contribute in any way:

James Doran – 087 2721028; Paula Mulroe – 086 8759824; Ann Potignano – 087 6339682; Alison Bayne – 053 9414543; Mary Cahill – 087 1348760; Paddy Byrne – 087 2310688; Davy Donohoe – 086 0820146

This is a great idea for our community and for the future generations of Askamore. Please have a look inside attics, cupboards, old books & photo albums to see what you or your family can contribute to the journal.
