Tidy Towns Result 2013: 28/50

 

TidyTowns 2013 comments: Approach roads are important in creating the first impression of a town or village. Clondalkin has attractive name signs erected in key locations by the Chamber of Commerce. They enhance the first impression of Clondalkin. The approach off the Naas Road on the Monastery Road has a landscaped roundabout with a town name stone. Also an attractive Chamber of Commerce name sign. A good first impression of Clondalkin. The approach at the top of Boot Road has a town name stone with flowers. The Boot Road/Fonthill Road junction also has a Chamber of Commerce sign and flowers. However, there are too many poles, signs, etc. which obscure the
name sign. Road surfaces are good and there are no issues arising in this category.
