Tidy Towns competition results: 2016
Killybegs's Tidy Towns score increased by a massive 13 points again this year - the second highest increase in Co Donegal for two years in a row. Thanks is due to everyone who helped to make this possible. The adjudicators spoke in glowing terms of Killybegs.
The Tidy Town's incorporates a lot more than tidiness and litter control e.g. residential streets and housing areas, approach roads, streets and lanes, wildlife/habitats and natural amenities, built environment and streetscape, landscaping and open spaces, community involvement and planning, sustainable waste and resource management. Killybegs have entered just 10 times since this competition began in 1958 - so gradually we are getting there and would gladly accept help from anyone willing to give us a hand as our committee consists of 5 people.
