Wicklow People (West Edition) - - NEWS -

THE TOWN of Ark­low re­ceived rave reviews from over 50 vis­i­tors who en­joyed a hol­i­day in town as part of The Gath­er­ing last week.

The group chose Ark­low as their base for ex­plor­ing Co. Wick­low as a re­sult of links with lo­cal man Paddy Finn and Coun­cil­lor Pat Fitzger­ald and told The Wick­low Peo­ple that they in­tend to come again next year, such was the fun they had dur­ing the week.

‘We were bowled over with the hos­pi­tal­ity, the ser­vice and the peo­ple,’said Chair­per­son of the Wick­low As­so­ci­a­tion in Birm­ing­ham Quee­nie Mul­vi­hill who hails from Tinahely and moved to Eng­land in the 50s.

‘The Ark­low Bay Ho­tel was a great place to stay and all the peo­ple that came with us have been ask­ing if Ark­low can be cho­sen as next year’s des­ti­na­tion again. We loved the one to one ser­vice in the lo­cal shops, es­pe­cially McMul­lan’s where many of us bought out­fits for an up­com­ing sum­mer ball.’
