Proud gardeners and estate residents - now is your time to shine in the Tidy Towns local competition!
Entry forms have been issued and the closing date is July 28 in seven categories - best hanging baskets, gardens, estates and business premises.
Entry forms are at the Enterprise Centre and entry is €5 per section. Results will be announced with the National Awards in early September.
Tidy Towns have started a new campaign of spraying weeds in the past week, in preparation for the national competition. They completed the Knockagh Roundabout and many beds around the town including the Memorial Garden. Anyone with a shrub in the garden can weed the area around it now it is sprayed. We think that the judges have been around for the first phase of adjudication and hope that we will make the shortlist for a second round in July so we need to stay on our guard!
