Dundalk Tidy Towns are inviting all residents to join their Spring Clean on the last weekend in April.
2022 is a very important year for Dundalk.
As a result of the success of Dundalk in the Supervalu Tidy Towns competition, Dundalk has been nominated to compete in Ireland’s Best Kept Town Competition.
This all-island competition sees towns from North and South compete for the title of the best kept town in Ireland.
The adjudicators visit at an unknown time in May and Tidy Towns are working hard to ensure Dundalk is looking its best.
The town will be judged on a number of categories including streets and public areas, residential areas, tidiness, business buildings and green spaces.
As part of preparation, they are holding three events during the Spring Clean Weekend.
The weekend kicks off at 7.00pm on Friday 29th April meeting at Lidl, Avenue Road.
The following day at 10.00am they will meet at St Helena’s Park and the weekend will conclude on Sunday 1st May at 10.00am at Lennon’s, Castletown Road. Bags, litter picks and gloves will be provided. Events will be 90 minutes in duration.
The group are encouraging all of their Adopt a Patch volunteers to carry out a litter pick in their area over the weekend.
The group say:
"We invite all residents’ associations in Dundalk to consider a clean up of their area over the weekend.
"For those who cannot participate, perhaps consider a 2 Minute Street Clean at their own house, perhaps removing a few weeds along a curb or flower bed or picking up a few pieces of litter.
"Let’s together make this the year Dundalk becomes Ireland’s Best Kept Town."
