STRAND Road, Carrigeendaniel, Criolar Na Mistealach and Caherina Cross were the big winners in the Tidy Tralee Awards on Monday night where a call was made to try for the Overall National prize next year.

The event, held in the Fels Point Hotel, also saw local businesses and private residences collect awards for their civic awareness with a special award going to Garvey’s Supervalu for their support of the organisation down the years.

Chairman of Tidy Tralee Together, Joe Moynihan, spoke of the great achievements over the past year for the local organisation.

“Tralee has not one but three Gold Medals – one in the National, in which we gained five points and two in the Entente Florale. Our aim for next year should be not Gold, but the overall prize,” he said.
