Join the celebration

The Athlone News is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year and to celebrate, we will be putting together a souvenir edition at the end of this month. Until then, we will be publishing some of the old photographs we found in our company’s library. We want you to join the reminiscing: send us your tales and dig up those photographs which bring back memories of the area. This is a celebration of your community newspaper so, join the fun.

We found a number of items in the archives about the Athlone Fair of 1974, including this promotional graphic. If you were at the fair, we want you to send us your memories about it. Email
