Best Frontage Competition

Best Frontage Competition

Paddy & Helen Sheahan, Margaret Smyth, Reen’s Pharmacy and Clara Inn – all did our town proud in last year’s Best Frontage Competition – along with several others in Minor Row, Woodlands Drive, Murphy’s Terrace, Station Road and Killarney Road.

Millstreet needs you.

Judging has now commenced.
