Tidy Towns’ Report Conclusion

Tidiness: The village pump near the landscaped area sponsored by Lidl looked poorly, as it was surrounded by loose stones and a generally unfinished surface. Close to this we also noted a large flypost for a childcare centre. At the south western gable of the town hall building the ESB substation would benefit from painting and replacement, as it looks quite shabby against the lovely stone work. Some of the railings and the stone steps would also benefit from painting. Some weeding was required in some of the paved island areas along Main Street/The Square.

The recycle bins at the Lidl car park are located in a beautiful spot with tall trees forming a great background. They are laid out on a very even paved surface. Disappointingly, somebody had left a filled bag behind in front of the clothes receptacle. Furthermore, we found two filled black sacks of - possibly clothes - behind the clothes bank. The little car park itself is nicely landscaped and laid out. The barriers into the cemetery near the Catholic Church need repainting. We noted two headless road signs beside the copper beech trees near the church.

Residential Areas: A housing estate with no name on the Templetuohy approach had nice planting at the edge of the estate. McDonogh Terrace looked well apart from many TV aerials on the roofs.

Templemore Property Developments 2009 appears to be an unfinished development with just a few houses built. It is very well landscaped but abandoned. As you say yourselves it does not cause an aesthetic problem. Railway View and Woodville Crescent were neatly presented. New paths have been formed at the entrance to Marian Road housing estates.

General Impression: Templemore is a fine town with a good built and natural heritage. It luckily also has committed citizens. The work carried out on the Square by the Council has improved the aesthetics and the ease of entry and exit to car parking areas. We wish you every success in the future. Go n-eírí libh!
