Kildorrery and Anglesboro take awards in Ballyhoura Tidy Towns
As villages all over Ballyhoura Country are preened to perfection for the arrival of another Tidy Towns’ season, Tidy Towns’ representatives from across Ballyhoura Country gathered to celebrate the achievements of the past year at the 22nd Annual Ballyhoura Country Tidy Towns’ awards.
Kildorrery and Anglesboro each took awards - Kildorrery winning the 'Litter Control, Waste Minismisation, Tidiness & Residential Areas' category while Anglesboro's award was in the 'Overall Development' category.
This year the event was held in the beautifully refurbished Church of Ireland Church in Bruff, County Limerick. Frank Hanley, one of the adjudicators of the National Tidy Towns Competition, gave a presentation on the competition and the do’s and don’ts for groups involved.
Amanda Slattery, Ballyhoura Development and Frank Hanley presented the awards based on an improvement in marks from 2011 to 2012. The awards cover all 10 categories from the National competition with an amalgamation of categories for the purpose of the Ballyhoura Country Awards. Again, adjudication reports from 2012 showed much improvement across all communities participating in the national competition from the Ballyhoura region.
In 2006, 16 groups were involved in the Tidy Towns competition from the region and 2013 again has seen a rise in entrants with close on 40 entrants in the national competition from the Ballyhoura region. Ballyhoura Development Ltd congratulate all the winners and wish all the groups every success in the National Tidy Towns Competition in 2013
The other groups to take awards included Knockainey, Castleconnell, Bruff and Kilmallock.
