Thes event takes place at the Radisson Hotel, Limerick. The seminar will be opened by Minister of State at the Department of the Environment Batt O’Keeffe. Eanna Ní Lamhna, president of An Taisce will be among the speakers. And Tidy Town’s adjudicator Eamonn de Stafort will give an insight into how the adjudication system works.

Mr O’Keefe said: “Good committees know to do really well in the competition, getting hold of the right information is key.”

Speaking about the importance of the national Tidy Towns competition, SuperValu marketing director Ray Kelly (national sponsor of the competition said): “The competition shows just what can be achieved with community spirit. The dedication of Tidy Towns committees around the Shannon region deserves the highest praise.”
