Tidy Towns - We have entered the National Tidy Towns competition again this year and judging commences in June. We would be grateful for your continued support in maintaining the general good appearance of your home and business premises. There are areas that need attention and with your help we can rectify this in the coming months. Rubbish is still a major problem in the area. The Multeen river and the bottle bank have become dumping grounds for rubbish. Public bins are not for household rubbish. South Tipperary County Council have been made aware of this problem and are monitoring the situation.
As April is National Spring Clean month it would be great if every road organised a general clean up of their area. We are extremely grateful of your support of the Bilboa lotto. This is our only source of funding and without it no improvements or painting in the area would be carried out.
