The Dowra Green Village Group is little over a year old, but the committee has proven its dedication to revitalizing Dowra village.
Its first project was the landscaping and walling of the Jim McPadden Memorial. The committee formed in late 2011and is made up of a small number of motivated Dowra inhabitants. They felt that “Sweet Dowra Town” was just not so sweet anymore.
The village, which borders counties Cavan and Leitrim, has been somewhat neglected in recent years.

Rachel Moran who is originally from Dublin was based herself as a call girl in the city center in the 1990s, during which time she says she earned “tens of thousands” of pounds. The 37-year-old said she worked in brothels in six apartments at city locations – including Cruises Street, the Dock Road and the Ennis Road – where she performed sex and sexual acts for clients from both the city and the county.
“I would have spent more time in Limerick than anywhere else, other than Dublin of course,” Ms. Moran explained.
“You would rent an apartment and run it as a brothel for whatever length of time until you got rumbled by the guards or the landlord or things turned violent. If the wives of Limerick knew what is going on – it’s an eye opener,” she said.

Fine Gael’s Clr. Larry Bannon was elected mayor of County Longford at local authority headquarters in the county town on Friday night, June 28.
The local area representative in the Legan area has been part of the local political arena for the last 10 years, and his victory became an historic occasion on the night.
Mayor Bannon is the brother of Deputy James Bannon, who also served as Longford County mayor prior to his election to Dáil Eireann (Irish Assembly). As a result, the newly elected mayor is one of two brothers who are the first in the county to both hold the prestigious office of county mayor.
