The campaign to improve Clones

Tender here. No mention of the engine shed amongst the heritage sites to be interpreted, alas. And the General description of proposed works document has a photo of the playground at O’Briensbridge in Co Clare, captioned as “Playground, Shannon Harbour, Co Offaly” even though Tom Burke’s boat is clearly visible in the background. Still, good to see that they’re not just waiting for a canal. And they intend to build a car park in the town park, which could be useful for the camper vans.

  1. Given that the locomotive shed (roundhouse) is the only one remaining on the island of Ireland (and one of only 4 ever built here), I would have thought that it would merit a mention.
