The 49th issue of the Leitrim Guardian will be officially launched tonight in Carrigallen.
At part of the launch, the Leitrim Guardian Person of the Year Award 2017 will be officially presented to Hubert McHugh, Drumkeerin.
There are many reasons to demonstrate how deserving Mr McHugh is of this award. Not only is Hubert a person with a very positive and friendly attitude, he also is a man of great compassion and empathy who has dedicated so much of his life to helping others. He engages in tremendous amounts of voluntary work for the benefit of the community and is involved in many committees serving the needs of various local causes. Nothing is ever too much trouble and Hubert is always quietly busy behind the scenes, never looking to draw attention to himself.
Congratulations to Mr McHugh and to the Editor and committee of the Leitrim Guardian.
