Nenagh 800 Celebrations were officially launched by Cathaoirleach Cllr. Joe Hannigan on the Council Chambers last Wed. 29th Jan.
A large crowd were in attendance and were entertained by the Nenagh Brass Band followed by an informative talk on the restoration of the castle by Flora O'Mahony (OPW) and our own Kevin Whelan (Nenagh Castle Tours).
Rosemary Joyce (Chairperson Nenagh 800) then spoke passionately about our beautiful and historic town. She gave an overview of the many various planned events for the coming year and how we might all get involved.
The winner of the 'Song for Nenagh' competition was then announced by Eva Birdthistle (Nenagh Arts Centre) and the audience were treated to a fantastic live performance by Bubba Shakespeare to round off the evening.
