Ballybay’s  neighbour Latton/Bawn has been selected by Monaghan County Council as Monaghan's Pride of Place representatives for 2017. This is a great honour and recognition of the great community voluntary spirit of the area, especially in the Centenary Year of Latton O'Rahilly GAA. Judging takes place on Tuesday 25th July from 10.00am to 1.00p and on that day there will be an opportunity to show what is best in Latton/Bawn. It is planned the judging will commence at Derrygooney Community Centre, with the judges travelling via the Senator Billy Fox Memorial Park, Bawn Handball Club, Lacken Bridge and Fivecrosses for a display and presentation at Latton O'Rahilly GAA Centre. So everyone and all organisations in the parish, along the route and at the venues are urged to have everything looking its best for the day. Please have everything tidy, hedges and grass trimmed, plants and flowers in place. This is a BIG DAY for LATTON/BAWN so let’s be at our best-it’s your place.
