The 2016 SuperValu TidyTowns competition opened for entries on 5 April 2016. The competition is for local communities who are interested in improving the quality of their surroundings and, in the process, developing community spirit.
The competition is administered by the Department of the Environment, Community and Local Government. It has been running since 1958 and each year attracts more than 700 communities across Ireland who compete for a cash award and the title of Ireland’s Tidiest Town.
Entry into the TidyTowns competition is voluntary and the competition is open to every village, town and city area in the State. The closing date for receipt of entries for this year’s competitions is 20 May 2016.
Judging takes place in June, July and August each year and the results are announced at the National Awards Ceremony in September.
