Bottle Bank is for Recycling not Dumping
photograph on the left was taken on 17th January 2019.
It is very disappointing that some people treat the
bottle bank as a dumping area. Volunteers keep the bottle
neat and tidy and it is grossly unfair to dump in
that area and expect volunteers to clean it up. Those
who use the bottle
bank are asked to bring their bottles/cans home with
them if the bins are full and return when the bins have

Voice Within” – A Showband Story
A Likely Story Productions are delighted to
bring the Sell-Out, hit show “The Voice Within” – A
Showband Story” to VISUAL, Carlow for Two Nights
Only at the end
of March (Friday 29th & Saturday 30th March 2019).
This original play with music, written by company co-founders
Carol Gleeson and Helen Spring, had a hugely successful
its premiere in Naas last October where it played to packed
houses every night for a week.
Set in Donegal in the 1960’s golden era of music, the
story follows an unassuming young man who finds himself at
the helm of an up-and-coming showband. Garnering attention
from two local girls, Tommy O’Grady struggles with his
new found persona both on and off stage, and the love triangle
that ensues. Through a series of memorable characters, we witness
a snapshot in time when Ireland is finally starting to find
its’ voice and when showband music was the revolutionary
language of the people.
Alongside a Live seven piece band under
the musical direction of Dave McGuaran, this nostalgic
and uplifting play includes
hits such as “The Hucklebuck”, “From the
Candystore”, “Blueberry Hill” and “Rock
Around the Clock” among many others as well as an original
song "The Voice Within" composed by well known
Newbridge singer/musician Owen C. Lynch.
Tickets €22 (concession €20) Exclusive Mother's Day Offer (beginning
from Wednesday 27th February) - 2 x tickets for €35
for the Friday night performance (Friday 29th March). Book

Robot for Clonegal
picturesque village of Clonegal, Co. Carlow has a new resident
- one who has a very distinct look. Its arms are conveyor
rollers from a quarry; its feet are the bucket teeth from
a digger. It has bolts for fingers and an engine for a
stomach. Its eyebrows are wire brushes, its hair comprises
motorbike chains and its cheery smile is thanks to the
roller from a conveyor belt.
This smiling metal man, who carries a suitcase, is completely made from recycled
scrap parts and was created by Liam Birmingham, a second-year mechanical engineering
student from Institute of Technology Carlow. And on Wednesday 13th June Liam,
alongside his engineering lecturers Dr. Anthony Nolan and Dr. Cathal Nolan, presented
the smiling ‘Tin Man’ to the Clonegal Tidy Towns committee. He will
reside in the square opposite the church in Clonegal village where his suitcase
will store used batteries as part of Clonegal’s ongoing efforts to “reduce,
reuse and recycle”.
