Ireland’s Best Kept Town.
In March 1996 a new initiative was launched jointly between Northern Ireland Amenity Council and the Department of the Environment, Dublin to find “Ireland’s Best Kept Town”.
Entrants for this competition come from the previous year’s winners of Best Kept Town and Village Awards and the Tidy Towns competition. All centres are visited during the month of May, with Awards presented in June.
