About Us

The Clondalkin Tidy Towns group started on a campaign in 2012 to rid the streets and green areas of Clondalkin Village of the ghastly site of litter. Following a well attended Public Meeting held on the 6th March 2012 in Clondalkin Civic Offices which was supported by Local Councillors and TD's, it was decided to set up a committee and put some plans in place. Our first public gathering took place on Tuesday 13th March 2012 and we had about 20 people come out to give a helping hand.The following Tuesday saw the group grow to over 23 people and in glorious weather.

The group meets in Tuthills carpark in the centre of the village every Tuesday Evening at 6.30pm (between March - Oct) and every Saturday and Sunday mornings at 10am. Hi-vis vests, gloves, litter pickers & bags are provided. If you have a yard brush or spade please bring them along.

Our aim:

To generate awareness, co-operation and enthusiasm amongst the people of Clondalkin in a concerted effort to enhance the natural, historic and built environment of the village.

Our objectives:

- Increase pride and morale in the community

- Public awareness of litter and waste management

- Reduce waste

- Wildlife conservation and enhancement

- Protection of fresh water resources

- A healthier environment
