Tidy Towns groups across Limerick are being invited to register for the first in-person seminar to take place in nearly three years. The event, which is being organised by Limerick City and County Council, will take place at the Woodlands House Hotel in Adare on Wednesday, February 16.

There is an excellent programme of guest speakers including representatives from Ireland’s Tidiest Small Town, Abbeyleix Co Laois (category C) and Blackrock, County Louth (category D) along with Senior Tidy Towns Adjudicator Anne O’Leary who is a former town planner with four decades of involvement in Tidy Towns.

Groups at all stages of their Tidy Towns journey whether they are new to the competition or seasoned competitors are all encouraged to attend the free event.

Mayor of the City and County of Limerick, Cllr Daniel Butler, said: “Communities have shown such resilience and strength throughout the restrictions, that now is their time to shine. Throughout lockdown Tidy Towns volunteers continued to work hard in the communities and they must be commended for this.”

“Now it’s great for Limerick’s Tidy Towns groups to be able to network at an in-person event. Tidy Towns volunteers continue to make an enormous contribution to civic life in Limerick and the seminar is just one way that the Council can support them with their volunteer work. I am looking forward to meeting them and welcoming our guest speakers to Limerick,” added the mayor.

Registration and refreshments for the seminar will be available from 6.15pm while the seminar itself will begin at 6.45pm.

While the event is free, Tidy Towns groups and volunteers are asked to register in advance – click here.
