The national SuperValu Tidy Towns competition is an annual contest organised by the Department of Rural and Community Development.
The competition involves participating areas being rated on all aspects of their local environment and prizes awarded to the best under many different categories. The overall winner is “Ireland’s Tidiest Town”, which is announced at a national ceremony in September each year.
With progress monitored and detailed feedback provided year on year, most participants initially enter the competition to generate interest in the environment in their community and create a solid platform on which to raise issues with the relevant authorities. Over time, the areas attain a standard where competing for major prizes is within reach.
Entry is now closed for the 2021 competition.
