The finishing touches are being put to plans for the 400th anniversary celebrations in Lismore. The programme of events was outlined to members of Lismore Town Council on Monday night by Mayor Julie Landers who has been working on the plans with Acting Town Clerk, Anita Meagher for some months now.
15 members of Lismore Dramatic Society in full period costume will take part in a parade which will begin in the town at noon on the May Bank Holiday Monday, May 6th. Local soccer and GAA clubs and other organisations and groups are being invited to take part. The parade will assemble at the primary school and walk to the town park where there will be speeches and a presentation of special commemorative medals bearing the town crest to former town councillors. Edward Lynch will act as MC for the event. Music is being provided by the Booley House Players and its also hoped to have the Dungarvan Brass Band in attendance.
It was agreed to invite jockey Dean Pratt to take part in the parade, if he is home at the time and available. Dean brought honour to the town last week when he won a major race in Aintree. He was congratulated and commended by councillors at Monday night’s meeting.
Primary schoolchildren are to be issued with special commemorative scrolls as a memento of the town’s 400th anniversary.
Refreshments will be served to the former councillors at the courthouse after the parade and presentation. Local shops and restaurants are being asked to stay open to accommodate the extra business the event is likely to generate.
A children’s disco is also being organised as part of the celebrations, all of which will centre around the Millennium park.
The Mayor was complimented for her work in putting together a very good and varied programme of events with something for everyone in the community to enjoy.
