Local volunteer Eugene Walsh has been "taking back Carlow" with his efforts to clean-up the town to make it safer and more visible in parts for residents and tourists. 

Recently, he began a clean-up of Hanover Park with the help of "Eugene's Army" - a campaign which began on the Facebook page, It's All About Carlow, and Eugene has transformed the amenity. 

He also issued an appeal for donations of white paint and the people answered. Now, the monument in the park has also been spruced up and the before and after images are incredible (pictured above).
