The editor of the Leitrim Guardian, Dr Bláithín Gallagher is delighted to announce on behalf of the Leitrim Guardian committee, that the recipient of the Leitrim Guardian Person of the Year Award 2014 is Eleanor Shanley.
The award will be presented to Eleanor at the launch of the Leitrim Guardian 2014 on November 22 in the Standing Stone Hotel in Ballinamore. Eleanor is one of Ireland’s foremost singers. She has been at the top of her profession since her first appearance with De Danann in 1990. She is well known for proudly promoting Leitrim at national and international level.
She is a great ambassador for our county and gives freely of her time and talents to many different charities.
The Leitrim Guardian, an annual publication which started in 1968, is Ireland’s only county journal and has 45 editions published to date.
Produced entirely through voluntary effort, the journal seeks to fulfil the aim of the first editorial, that is “to enlighten the people of Ireland on the beauty and glory of our county”. We have added an international audience to that aim and hope that the journal will also give pleasure to our scattered diaspora.
The last of the Leitrim Guardian 2013 edition are still in the shops of available online at www.leitrimguardian.ie
