ENNIS has been named as Ireland’s Tidiest Town for 2021.
It was named as the winner at Friday afternoon’s ceremony. Ennis also took the award for Ireland’s Tidiest Large Urban Centre.
At the ceremony Minister Heather Humphreys announced Ennis as the winner, while presenter Anne Cassin said that its Tidy Towns group had done great work to keep people positive during the pandemic.
She said adjudicators had found that that Ennis had excelled on social media, while they praised initiatives such as artwork on the town’s drain covers, which were described as “combining the aesthetic with the practical”.
Also praised were the town’s parklet, the work done on pollinators, gum drop bins, and sustainability initiatives such as school walking buses and the town’s bike week.
