PICTURED above is the magnificent team that tunred out for the annual Dromiskin Tidy Towns Spring Clean which took place in the historic village. Despite the odd shower of rain, students and staff from St Peter’s National School joined members of the Tidy Towns Committee as well as residents and got stuck into.
You couldn’t miss the dozens of litter collectors in their Dromiskin Tidy Towns high Vis jackets and accompanied with the Junior Tidy Towns members as they approached the village from all four approach roads at from 7pm.
According to Pat Mulligan, Principal of St. Peter’s National School and Chairperson of Dromiskin Tidy Towns it was a great achievement and another Successful Spring Clean.
Dromiskin maintained its gold medal status in the Louth Litter League last year with a 94 per cent rating and is striving to maintain this in this years’ competition.
The Community has really come together in the last number of years and the results can be seen on the ground.
The Tidy Towns have had a very active year since judging last June with the launch of the three-year plan Heritage Trail and Biodiversity plan.
Biodiversity is the study of the animals, plants and micro-organisms that live, feed, reproduce in one area: a bog, woodland, marsh, hedge, lake or stream.
Dromiskin has one of the richest ecological environments in the county and the Tidy Town group now hopes to implement this plan and improve the village’s marks in the national tidy towns wildlife and natural amenity category. The detailed report on Dromiskin was commissioned by Louth County Council.
