Lorraine Power, who is a Tidy Towns Adjudicator, will answer questions from the floor and also give some information about what adjudicators in the national competition are impressed by when they travel the length and breadth of the country looking for Ireland’s tidiest town.

Information will also be given about the newly formed Urban and Village Renewal Department in Limerick City and County Council and what action they are taking on derelict sites, and also how Tidy Towns can assist in identifying sites.

Sorcha Kavanagh from the Conscious Cup Campaign will speak about what that they are doing to reduce the prevalence of single use disposable cups, while Limerick City and County Council’s Environmental Awareness Officer Sinead McDonnell will be on hand detailing what the council is doing to make people much more aware of their responsibilities when it comes to litter.

A total of 54 Tidy Towns groups from across Limerick city and county took part in the competition in 2017.

Anyone interested in attending contact Jayne Power or Sinead McDonnell at [email protected] [email protected] by Friday, April 7.
