The village of Clady is all of a buzz tonight after one of its most respected residents and business people achieved one of the highest accolades which it is possible to attain, a mention on Radio Ulster’s flagship news programmes, Evening Extra.
The excitement began following an article on Christmas window displays when a texter contacted the show to say that Peter J McCann’s Furniture store in Clady near Portglenone which is near Clady, had an exceptional display. The historic moment can be heard here at 37 minutes and 10 seconds,
There has already been talk about Peter receiving the freedom of the village for services to carpeting but when we asked him for an interview the ever-modest purveyor of wooden stuff told us,
“Clear off you half-wits before I call the police!”
Anyway, here is the display in question taken this very evening at a packed Clady Corner.
