Author and Tidy Towns Heritage Officer Padraig Lyons has relaunched his prized book “Rediscover Ballinasloe and Surrounds”, a publication aiming to highlight the hidden gems and interesting sights within the district.
Padraig began working on his passion project in 2018, finding that there was a distinct lack of literature focusing on the heritage of Ballinasloe. The book aims to be a light read, showing photography of places accompanied by a brief description.
The first edition was released to great acclaim, and completely sold-out from stores last year. The relaunched features a brand-new red sleeve and slightly higher price tag.
“I’m very grateful to BACD and the Ballinasloe Credit Union who sponsored half of the book initially and being a great support” noted Padraig.Available to purchase at Salmon’s Department Store, on their online shop, or at other retail outlets in town at €10 per copy.
