This year it gained an additional two marks and in the Louth Looking Good Awards, the village was judged the most improved entry.

At the recent agme secretary Liam Reilly highlighted the successful projects undertaken during the year: replacement all litter bins; planting on the stone wall at the school; clean-up of the green area in centre of village and painting the fence; replacement of the village centre bedding area; tiered planters at the credit union and green area opposite; flower towers outside the church gates; painting the hoarding around Ginnity’s; replacement of bedding plants at the hall; various litter pick-ups; participation in Spring Clean Week; planting in Lawlor’s garden by pupils from St Peter’s.

A large number of local people have pledged hours on various activities for the 2012 when a heritage trail is planned. Louth Leader supported the Village Enhancement Works.

The secretary said there has been an excellent response to the Household Recycling Survey co-ordinated by Pat Mulligan.
