Limerick City and County Council together with Limerick City Centre Tidy Towns are expressing delight after the city was nominated in The All-Island Best Kept Town Competition.

The competition recognises the great pride people have in their own communities all across the island. Limerick City was last nominated in 2017.

Adjudication will take place sometime in May and will be closely followed the National Tidy Towns adjudication in June. How public buildings are presented is important along with business and residential areas.

The Council and the city centre Tidy Towns group are calling on everyone in the city centre to make every effort possible to present their homes and business premises in the best light possible over the coming months.

 Mayor of the City and County of Limerick Cllr Francis Foley said, “It is an honour to be nominated and great credit is due to Tidy Towns volunteers, staff from Limerick City and County Council, retailers, other businesses and Limerick city residents. I would encourage everyone to keep up the good work and let’s help Limerick put its best foot forward.”

Chair of Limerick City Tidy Towns, Helen O Donnell said, “This nomination is wonderful recognition of the efforts of Limerick’s dedicated Tidy Towns volunteers. Together with Council staff our volunteers are dedicated to keeping litter off the city streets and showcasing Limerick as the unique and beautiful city that it is.”

Ireland’s Best Kept Towns awards is run by the Northern Ireland Amenity Council and the Department of the Environment and Local Government. Top towns from the Northern Ireland Amenity Council’s Best Kept Awards and the Department of the Environment’s Tidy Towns Competition compete with each other for the honour of being judged “Ireland’s best”. The competition was set up in 1995. This is the 26th year of cross-border collaboration, partnership, and most importantly, friendship.
