Mairead McGuinness, Fine Gael MEP for Kildare and Vice-President of the European Parliament, has congratulated everyone involved in helping make Kildare Ireland’s cleanest town in today’s Irish Business Against Litter league.

“This accolade has been won by Kildare for the very first time because of consistent and painstaking hard work over many years and a strong co-ordinated community effort,” she said.

“It is noteworthy that An Taisce, which undertakes the assessment, commented on the rarity of finding a town in such a spotless condition throughout.

“We owe a debt of gratitude to everyone involved – the Tidy Towns Committee, Schools, Chamber of Commerce, Council staff and all who assisted in making this happen.

“It means you have not only brought out the best in the town but you have helped make it a most pleasant and appealing environment for all who live in the town and visit it. Keep up the good work,” she said.
