Chairman of the Promoting Cahir Group, Patrick O’Donovan has commended Tidy Towns Chairman, Andy Moloney and all those in the group for the tremendous work that was carried out during the past year in the town of Cahir, in the wake of a points increase for the town in this year’s national Tidy Towns competition.

“It is proof alone that Cahir achieved an extra 6 points this year in the national competition and it is totally due to the dedication and commitment of the Tidy Towns Group under the leadership of Andy Moloney.

“The Town has never looked as well as this year and many business premises have no doubt been encouraged by the work of the Tidy Towns Group to not only hang baskets, but to paint or tidy up their shop fronts in an effort to enhance the overall look of the town and perhaps also to impress the national competition judges. We, as traders, know the significance of promoting our town as a tidy and beautiful place to visit. Congratulations to Andy and each and every dedicated member of the Tidy Towns Group and thank you on a job well done.”

Cahir increased its score from 279 to 285. The judges commented in their report: “There are huge quantities of visitors calling to your lovely town each year and it is a credit to your commitment that the litter is well controlled. I must congratulate you on the splendid work that you are undertaking to make Cahir so picturesque and orderly.”

Cahir Tidy Towns Awards, sponsored by Dolans, took place last Friday night. There were wins for Beechpark in the Residents Section with Carmel Casey taking the Best Large Garden honours. Irwin’s won the hanging basket section with Quirke’s Jeweller’s and Dolan’s winning business and shop front awards. The full list can be seen on Facebook. The group would like to thank all who contributed to a successful year and look forward to another 6 points next year. They continue to meet at 7pm on Wednesdays.
