2017 was enthusiastically welcomed by New Year's Eve revellers in a variety of hostelries throughout The Avondhu catchment. 

All things considered, pubs enjoyed a busy Christmas and New Year. For a lot of people this is still a time for 'heading out' and touching base with friends and neighbours.

There was a warm welcome for revellers with plenty of entertainment laid on in the shape of singers and DJs.
