Birdhill, Co. Tipperary has been named Ireland’s Tidiest Town for 2017, at a recent awards ceremony that took place at The Helix in Dublin.
Over 870 towns and villages throughout the country entered this year’s competition.
Michael Ring, Minister for Rural and Community Development, said, "TidyTowns is one of the most recognisable environmental initiatives in Ireland, but it also encompasses a way of life here in Ireland, where we show respect for our neighbours and for nature."
This is SuperValu’s 26th year as title sponsor of the TidyTowns competition.
Martin Kelleher, Managing Director, SuperValu said, “SuperValu TidyTowns is a unique initiative that highlights the power of local as communities come together to improve their towns and villages across the country."
Other winners included Clonakilty, Co. Cork which received the award for Ireland’s Tidiest Small Town. Westport, Co. Mayo, received the award of Ireland’s Tidiest Large Town, while Ennis, Co. Clare won Ireland's Tidiest Large Urban Centre.
