April 11th, 2018 | by

The Tidy Towns 2018 Waters and Communities Award, co-sponsored by Inland Fisheries Ireland, is now open for applications.

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.

Last year, Emyvale Tidy Towns, Co. Monaghan, won the inaugural Waters and Communities Award category for their wonderful project on Emy Lough. In addition, four Regional Award Winners, each won €1,000: Dodder Action Group (Midlands & East), Emyvale TidyTowns themselves (North West & West), The Friends of St. John’s River (South East) and Glounthaune TidyTowns (South & Midwest).

There were also four Regional Runner-Up Award Winners last year (€500 each): Baltrasna Boreen Biodiversity Group (Midlands & East), Culdaff River Community Angling Club (North West & West), Cheekpoint & Faithlegg Development Group (South East), and Castletownroche TidyTowns Committee (South & Midwest).

Emyvale won an additional prize of €1,000 for being the overall winner of the four regions.

The deadline for applications deadline for 2018 is May 23rd.
