Athlone News turns 30

he Athlone News is inviting our readers to take a walk down memory lane with us for our 30th anniversary. A special edition will be published at the end of September to mark this milestone.

We’d love to hear from our readers, anything from telling us what the area was like 30 years ago, to what has changed and sharing some of your fondest memories of the area. We also invite schools and community organisations to share their memories with us, as well as their old pictures.

To contribute to our special edition, call the newsroom at 021 488 4230 or you can send an email to, with “Athlone News anniversary” in the subject line.

To advertise in the souvenir edition, contact Abigail Wilmot at or 021 488 4244.
