35th edition of Letterkenny Christmas Annual on sale from Thursday

The front cover of the 2016 Letterkenny Christmas Annual

Christmas in Letterkenny just wouldn’t be Christmas - without the Christmas Annual, which hits the shelves on Thursday.

The 35th edition of the Christmas Annual is the latest production by the team at Letterkenny Community Centre.

Once again, it’s packed full of memories and stories of old, along with interviews and features looking back on the year gone by.

Editor Jim Lynch is hoping people can enjoy this latest edition during a quiet moment over the Christmas period.

“This edition will hopefully add to your nostalgic memories of local social history and provide a pictorial record of faces and changing streetscape,” he said.

This year, the annual boasts a new ‘Municipal District’ section, to encourage areas outside the town to become involved. There are articles from Ramelton, Kilmacrennan, the Lagan, Churchill and Glenswilly all included.

Sport is well featured too, as are some of those who passed away during 2016, among them a loyal contributor to the annual over the years, May McClintock.

The annual is priced at €10 and will be available from the Community Centre and local outlets from Thursday.
