AS PART of Carlow County Council’s Decade of Centenaries initiative for 2022, several presentations were recently made to Carlovians who have reached the milestone age of 100 years. To mark the momentous achievement, the centenarians were presented with a commemorative gold medal with best wishes from Carlow County Council.
