The Quay Street refurbishment project in Dundalk carried out by Dundalk Tidy Towns and the former town council has been completed.

The project consists of a series of commissioned photographs and murals which recreate the original buildings in the area.

A great deal of research was carried out to ensure the refurbishment was as accurate as possible from a historical and architectural point of view.

The rejuvenation project was undertaken by Dundalk Tidy Towns group on some old buildings.

It’s an example of what can be done on a collaborative basis to enhance the environs.

It shows the area as it was in the mid 20th century.

Dundalk Tidy Towns has also played a major role in the setting up of the anti-dog fouling devices in the town.

The project was set up last March and has proved successful. It includes an anti-dog fouling audio device.

The areas included are: Ice House Hill, Philip Street, Castletown Road, St Mary’s road, Fair Green, Mount Avenue, the Navvy Bank, Riverside Walk and Red Barns Road.

The message is: Keep Dundalk clean and tidy.

This area is being monitored for dog fouling. the fine for allowing your dog to foul in a public place is €150.

Dog fouling has long been a concern of local people so this project has been warmly welcomed throughout the locality .

Last year Dundalk Tidy Towns launched a very successful Dundalk Tourism DVD which was a collaboration between Dundalk Tidy Towns and the Creative Media department at DkIT.

It has been used successfully on tourism websites to promote Dundalk not just in Ireland but around the world.

The group also launched a coluring book designed to promote the town and it also carried an anti-litter message.

The book was sponsored by Matthews Coaches.

A great project indeed.
