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!



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.

Askamore Tour of Wexford – 26th May 2018

The Askamore group left on Saturday morning a smiley happy group and I don’t blame them, they knew that they were going to have a great day out and to see some of the most beautiful sights in Wexford. And what a glorious day it was too! Many thanks to Geraldine Berney & Stacey Gilbert for the photos. If you have some, please feel free to share on our Facebook page.

If the reports coming back from this tour are anything to go by, the next one will be selling out quickly. They had a fantastic day and are already planning the next adventure so make sure to keep an eye on our website and Facebook page to get involved.

June Bank Holiday Weekend

It’s a big bank holiday weekend here in Askamore.

Social dancing is on here in the hall this Friday night and if that’s not enough then our Trad music sessions are starting on Sunday afternoon from 4-6pm.

We would love to see anyone who likes to play, sing or dance to trad music joining us.

We have draught guinness and the sun will (hopefully!!) be shining……
