Glaslough Civic Reception by Monaghan County Council took place in Oakland Centre on Friday November 2nd and the awards and rewards keep arriving in Glaslough and they are all well deserved as Glaslough took two National titles in the Tidy Towns Competition 2019 and one of these was the Overall Winner defeating almost 920 other competitors. The various speakers on the night told a full hall, most of whom had contributed to the success of the village, that these titles did not come easily and that it was as a result of hard work over many years and by a huge band of people working in community unity that success was achieved and that work was initiated by Paddy and Alice Connolly. They were in attendance, proud of their village and its achievements and recalling their memories of the 1978 Overall Title win. All were congratulated and thanked for bringing such honour to County Monaghan. Speakers included Carmel Thornton, Monaghan Co Co; Seamus Treanor, Deputy Mayor of Monaghan; Sean Conlon, Mayor of Monaghan Municipal District; Minister Heather Humphreys; Patricia Monahan, Director of Service Monaghan Co Co.; and on behalf of Glasough - Gareth Corrigan and Louis Duffy. Presents were presented to the Council, to the Minister and to Glaslough. A number of Councillors, TDs, MEP and Senators were in attendance. Glaslough Tidy Towns then presented awards to winners in the various areas of Glaslough Village. Time then for food prepared and presented by staff led by Packie and Don McGee. Music and dancing followed, produced by strings and keys of Rainbow and so ended a wonderful night of celebrations.
