Why the Name ?:

Why the Name ? The Market Square was the place in the town where the community met up weekly to buy and sell to each other and find out the news of the day.

Why the Logo ?:

Why the Logo ? Many people of the area will remember the clock tower that once connected two sides of the Market Square in Kingscourt . The logo of this website uses an artists impression of how the Market Square we know today might look if the clock tower was reinstated. Like the logo the aim of this website is to recognise the benefits a local meeting place from the past and give it an update with a 21st century twist. Old Concept – New Beginning
