Tidy TownsCongratulations to the hard working volunteers who again did Carrickmacross proud with their effort this year in the Tidy Towns Competition. They were rewarded with a Brozne Title and gained an extra point on the scoring from last year.  It was a pity that the judging panel visited the town on the Tuesday after the Festival when the clean up would still have been in progress after another successful Carrickmacross Festival.

Volunteers are always needed so if you have time to spare get involved.  To see some of the Tidy Towns work please click here >>
