Review available before Christmas
Meanwhile The Templemore Clonmore Killea Review 2018 will be available in the shops before Christmas. Some articles in this edition reflect the impact of the Great War on our town.

The significant events and successes of the past year in our clubs, organisations and schools are celebrated. The County Fleadh was a major highlight of 2018. Some of our esteemed citizens share their interesting life experiences.

A new feature is an article on some of the built heritage of Templemore. We recall and pay tribute to the people of the parish who have died during the year. Thiswould make a worthwhile gift for family and friends at home or abroad.
