A matter of pride in Clare

Clare communities, project groups and housing estates have once again an opportunity to demonstrate how best they can enhance their surroundings

Such groups have until Friday of next week (March 27) to express their interest in participating in the 2015 IPB Pride of Place competition. For the second year in a row, the national finals will be hosted by Clare County Council in Ennis in November.

Nominated Clare communities will be hoping to emulate the local successes of recent years, including Miltown Malbay’s first place award in 2013 and Killaloe and Tuamgraney’s runner-up finishes in 2014. Last year, Clare County Council also won a special award for its contribution to the competition since it was first established in 2003.

Clare County Council may nominate one group per category, providing the total number nominated does not exceed five. Judging for Pride of Place 2015 takes place between June and August.

Further information on the competition is available at www.prideofplace.ie
