Pride of Place Runners Up 2012

Clondalkin Tidytowns were awarded runners up in category 5 (population over 2,000) in this years Pride of Place competition held in Thomand Park, Limerick on Saturday 4th November. The group was represented by Marie Kearney, Kathleen Gill and myself and we were joined by Maire Ní Dhomhnaill from SDCC in collecting the award. We were also given a cheque for €500. This is a massive achievement for everyone in Clondalkin and is something we will be proud of for many years. We met one of the judges who said that he was amazed by the amount of work done by the group in such a short space of time.

We set out on a campaign to rid the streets and green areas of Clondalkin Village of the ghastly site of litter in March. Through our work and hard effort, we have united many different communities and cultures and we have helped to give people something to be proud of once again.
