Tidy Towns Winners 2017 – Ballincollig Carrigaline Municipal District

Cork County Council is proud to host a reception in County Hall for both Ballincollig and Carrigaline Tidy Town Groups.

Community is at the Heart of everything we do at Cork County Council. In 2017 we had a record breaking 870 towns and Villages competing in the Tidy Town Awards.

Commenting on their Success the Chair of the Ballincollig Carrigaline Municipal District, Cllr. Mary Rose Desmond said “ I would like to express my thanks to all the volunteers in Carrigaline and Ballincollig, whose dedication make the towns better places to live. Cork County Council will continue to work with you into the future and support you in your endeavours”.

Carrigaline had a very successful year winning its first gold medal. It was one of four winners in the Large Town category in the ‘Lets get buzzing – Local Authority Pollinator Award’. It was also the overall national winner of the Clean Air Award. The judges were impressed by the wonderful planting on the entrance to the Town and the projects undertaken included Biodiversity Garden, School Projects on Sustainable Waste and Food Packaging, Landscaping and Tree-planting and maintenance of community garden areas and roundabouts.

Ballincollig won its 6th Gold Medal and was the winner in the County Award Section for South Cork.
