Efforts are ongoing in Fermoy to improve the exterior of the former 59 Club at the corner of Fitzgerald Place and Lower Patrick Street.

Although the building itself is in serious disrepair, Fermoy Tidy Towns have been working to improve the image of the building so as not to detract from the aesthetics of the town.

Last year the exterior of the building was power-washed and painted, and now, thanks to Toss Bryans, signs have been made to cover up the windows.

Fermoy Tidy Towns say they are in the process of acquiring new signs to cover the rest of the windows and will have these in place shortly.

Noel McCarthy who is chairperson of Fermoy Tidy Towns, said: “We’re grateful to Toss Bryans for sponsoring this work and getting it done, it goes a long way to improving the look of the building. The 59 Club is located very centrally in the town so it’s important to have it looking nice, even if it’s not being used.”
