Monthly Award for Tidy Towns June 2017 goes to Bluebird Care, Hibernian House, Henry Street

Tidy Towns June 2017 have presented their monthly award to Bluebird Care, for their beautifully refurbished basement at Hibernian House, Henry Street. Pictured outside the premises being presented with the Tidy Towns June 2017 award by Maura O’Neill of Limerick City Tidy Towns and Peter Jewell of the Tidy Towns Youth Division are Gerard Hartnett, Paula McInerney, Aoife O’Neill, Louise Collins and Sinead Gohery of Bluebird Care.

Maura says “As can be seen from our signs erected on a number of particularly bad basements in the city,  we are currently running a campaign to draw attention to basements we can’t get access to clean, which we feel are a huge blight in parts of Georgian Limerick. In order to counteract this, we have selected a basement as our June award winner to highlight just how wonderful these premises can look when reclaimed and refurbished, and the property options they offer to Limerick as a whole, for both business and residential use.  Indeed, this particular basement is one that we spent many hours cleaning in the past before it was refurbished, as can be seen in the attached photograph, so it’s particularly rewarding to see how beautifully it has been restored, both inside and out for Bluebird Care’s Limerick office”.
