09/09/2014

Fine Gael TD for Dublin Fingal Alan Farrell has congratulated the Tidy Towns organisations in Malahide and Skerries on their Tidy Towns gold medal awards, which includes a cheque for €900.

“I would like to congratulate the local Tidy Towns organisations in Malahide and Skerries on receiving gold medal awards in the national competition. These awards are testament to the hard-work undertaken in the local communities of each of these towns. These awards recognise the commitment of those involved with the local Tidy Towns organisations in both Malahide and Skerries and their diligent work in keeping their local areas tidy which enhances the tourism potential of our local communities.”

“In addition to being awarded gold stars, Skerries also claimed the top spot in Dublin with an extra award of €1000 while Malahide took second place in Dublin gaining an award of €800 for highly commended towns and villages.”

“It is very encouraging to see two towns in the North County claiming both the first place and second place spots in Dublin. I would also like to acknowledge the hard-work undertaken by the Tidy Towns groups and the local communities in Swords, Rush, Lusk and Balbriggan who all received highly respectable scores in this year’s Tidy Towns competition. With the obvious commitment of all involved in Tidy Towns in Dublin Fingal, I’m sure our local communities will continue to excel in the coming years.”

“I would also like to congratulate my Fine Gael colleague, long standing Malahide Tidy Towns volunteer, Cllr Anthony Lavin who can be rightly proud of his involvement alongside so many other committed volunteers right across the county.”
