REFLECTION OF SUMMER 2013
So, today marks the end of the summer season in Tramore, with a great fireworks display planed on Sunday evening. As we look back over the last few months, there is a lot to be thankful for. The weather was the best we have had in many a year. But what made these summer months special were for many, the people of the town who do so much – often behind the scenes – the unsung heroes who make this town so great.
We think of those in the tidy towns committee, and everyone who got behind helping cleaning the beaches and streets,(and the young people who cleaned Canons Field every day!) along with the council workers and locals. It was great work which got very positive comments during the summer. Our emergency services, particularly the Rescue 117 helicopter team at the airport; the coast guard; the lifeguards; the fire service; the Order of Malta and Gardai who daily look out for everyone – often at a great personal risk. There are many involved in so many activities who kept the town alive – arranging family and charity days; marathons; surfers; skating and swimming, tea after Mass on the Lady’s slip and Canons Field! The team who arranged the Mass on the Prom with unprecedented crowds at Mass, and those who worked the amusements and retails outlets and restaurants. Our racing festival was the best in living memory, and our cultural exploits were available to all.
Often, we may take these things for granted. Tramore is a great town, and this summer, to see so many people come together to take pride in all that we do was something very special. To our visitors who came either for a day or the whole summer – thank you for being here! We really did appreciate your support! To our residents young and young at heart who did so much – take a bow!
Tramore isn’t the town it is by being blessed to be on the coast and the services we have- it is the people who make this town!
For that, we should have great pride and give thanks for all we have!
