Inland Fisheries Ireland sends its congratulations to Emyvale Tidy Towns!

Inland Fisheries Ireland sends a big congrats to Emyvale Tidy Towns, Co. Monaghan, on winning the brand new Waters and Communities Award category in the nationwide Tidy Towns 2017, presented in The Helix, Dublin, yesterday.

Inland Fisheries Ireland co-sponsors the new award in collaboration with the Local Authority Waters and Communities Office and Waterways Ireland.

Emyvale won the overall prize in this category for their wonderful project, led by Enda Fields, on Emy Lough.

The Waters and Communities Award award aims to recognise communities who are taking positive steps towards raising awareness and appreciation of their local streams, rivers, lakes, canals, wells and coast. Community groups can play a vital role in the protection and improvement of our natural water environment. Together, we can protect our waters for future generations to enjoy.
