MEP MCGUINNESS CONGRATULATES BLACKROCK
Mairead McGuinness MEP and first Vice-President of the European Parliament has congratulated everyone associated with Blackrock, Co. Louth Tidy Towns for winning the tidiest small town in today’s Tidy Towns competition.
“It is a well-deserved accolade, and not easy to achieve against such competition with 918 entrants from throughout the country.
“While Blackrock has tremendous natural beauty, a great deal of work is required to ensure it is preserved and enhanced and that new development is themed and everything is co-ordinated and constantly maintained to a very high standard.
“Everyone associated with Blackrock Tidy Towns deserve credit for their ongoing, never ending work which has made Blackrock a vibrant and extremely pleasant location for young and old alike.
“As a community we owe the Committee a great debt of gratitude,” she said.
