It's always nice when a community never forgets and honours one of its members. In the Gorey Guardian this week you can see an article by Fintan Lambe entitled "Carnew Musical Society and AIMS honour Joe O'Loughlin". He occupied many positions on local and regional committees - culminating in a two year term (1980-1982) as national President of the Association of Irish Musical Societies (AIMS). He was presented with a gold pin and a copy of a portrait of him in his chain of office in honour of his contribution to AIMS and Carnew Musical Society.

Dad loves his music and is still a keen supporter of the Carnew Musical Society. He and my Mum Phil love to go to shows - Carnew Musical Society will be hosting its 50th show this November. I'm certain that both have seen every one of the previous 49 shows several times! Your community and family are very proud of you Dad!
