historic town clock is to get a facelift this spring.

Carrick-on-Suir Business Association has teamed up with Carrick-on-Suir Municipal District Council to give the West Gate based clock and its tower a new coat of paint.

A spokesperson for Carrick-on-Suir Business Association said they hoped to have a contractor ready by the middle of this month to do the work.

He invited any painting contractor interested in taking on the project to contact Rosann O’Sullivan of Carrick-on-Suir Business Association at Carrick Heritage Centre, off the Main Street or email: cos.business@gmail.com.

The town clock was erected at the West Gate in 1784 and is one of Carrick-on-Suir key landmarks.

“The town clock is badly in need of a clean up and it would be great to get this project done this spring before the tourist season starts,” said the COSBA spokesperson.

With Ormond Castle closed this year for renovations, we want to make sure the town’s other attractions look their best,” he added.
