5 points up in this year's National Tidy towns competition!

"Well, the results are out and we have gained 5 points in this year's National competition. A fantastic result considering the amount of disruption with our roads and building works this year, so well done all of you who picked up litter, planted plants and painted walls and fences. Together as a community we have shown that we do make a difference!

Congratulations are also due to the Transition Towns Donabate Portrane group who were nominated by the Donabate Tidy Towns committee in the Tidy Towns Comhar special award category of Sustainable Development and who won highly commended plus a cheque for €500. As a tidy towns group it is great to see the weekly market run by the Transition Towns group supporting local producers and growers. See ww.ttdp.ie for details of how you can volunteer or see the group’s activities and become part of sustainability on our peninsula.

For the full adjudication report please see:

This will give us areas to focus on next year and in the coming years, but for now let's focus on our achivements.

Congratulations to our neighbouring Fingal towns and villages who did fantastically well also.
