The standard was extremely high. In addition to Greyhound Recycling, the judges also thanked Portmarnock Village Traders Association and Fingal County Council for their efforts in making Portmarnock such a great village
The Tidy Towns in Portmarnock encouraged more residents to join them in improving the village.
The competition ran from June 1st to August 1st. Many estates around Portmarnock got involved in the competition for the tidiest estate. They were judged on communal areas (50%) and houses/gardens (50%)
The winning estate receives €500 to spend on common areas, a free skip for a clean up and a winner’s plaque for placement at the entrance to the estate. The two runners-up receive €250 free skip each and a plague.
Greyhound Group Managing Director, John Brosnan said:
Greyhound is delighted to support this competition. We know the very real effort Portmarnock Tidy Towns puts into making Portmarnock the lovely town it is. Congratulations to the winners. Hopefully, the competition will help Portmarnock Tidy Towns garner even more points in the national awards in the future.
Well done to all who were involved.
