The recent Taste of Monaghan Festival was hailed as a great success by the members of Monaghan Town Council on Monday night.

Councillors passed a vote of congratulations with the organisers of the Festival.

Congratulations were also expressed to the pupils of St Macartan’s College who represented their school at a recent law event in the United States.

Sean Conlon congratulated actor Aoibhin McGinnity from the Clones Road in Monaghan who had a leading role in the current RTE drama series Love/Hate.  Colr Conlon noted that Aoibhin had started off her acting career at the Garage Theatre in Monaghan.

David Maxwell proposed a vote of congratulations with local firm Universal Graphics on their receipt of an ISO 9000 quality accreditation, stating that it was a great achievement for a local company to earn such a distinction in the current harsh trading conditions.

Donal Sherry expressed congratulations to the Clontibret, Doohamlet and Corduff Gaelic football teams on their recent county final success at various grades, and wished them well in their forthcoming Ulster Championship encounters.

Cathaoirleach Robbie Gallagher said the Council should acknowledge that the manager of the winning Clontibret senior football team was a Monaghan Townsman, Declan Brennan.

The Cathaoirleach also expressed good wishes to new county senior football team manager Eamon McEneaney and minor team manager Colm McAree.

Colr Gallagher thought the Council should express its gratitude and appreciation to the former Monaghan manager Seamus McEnaney and his assistant Adrian Trappe.

“They raised Monaghan football to a new height and it is only right that we express our appreciation to them,” the Cathaoirleach stated.
