TRALEE Tidy Towns is now looking for volunteers who want to show some pride in their town to step up and help out over the next two months as June 11th marked the beginning of the official adjudication period for the National Tidy Towns competition.

The local effort is back in action and it’s a collaborative one involving volunteers from various groups such as Tralee Tidy Towns, Team Bramble, Tralee Lyons Club, local schools, MTU and more recently some strong support from Tralee Chamber Alliance and local businesses.

This volunteer effort is bolstered by the Friends of Able CE Scheme contribution and Kerry County Council Tralee MD staff making it a real community effort but during the adjudication period more support is needed.

“We are looking for litter pickers, gardeners, anyone handy with a paint brush. It’s a great way to get out and get to know people and do something good for your town as part of a team,” said Brendan O’Brien, Chair of the Tralee Tidy Towns Committee.

“We’d love to hear from anyone who takes pride in Tralee wants to see Tralee looking good. They could be residents, or business people or families who want to get out and participate in voluntary work that can really make a difference to the sense of wellbeing in Tralee. We have the equipment, all we need are the people,” said Brendan.

“Over the last three adjudication processes, we have been steadily gaining points in the Tidy Towns league table having jumped 15 points from 2019 to our current score of 338 and we have won nine gold medals in a row which we’re very proud about,” he added.

There are weekly work events on Wednesdays at 7pm (meeting Garvey’s Supervalu car park), Saturdays 7.30am (meeting at the Brandon car park) or Sundays at 10am (meeting at Lidl car park). If you’d like to get involved, contact or private message the Tralee Tidy Towns Facebook page by clicking here.
