Birdhill Village wins Tidy Towns Competition
The little community of Birdhill is rejoicing after being named the overall winner in the 2017 National Tidy Towns Competition. Having received the Tidiest Village accolade on four previous occasions, the elusive overall title was often within touching distance, but it has now been finally reached.
It is great to see that such a small village could win this prestigious award against so many highly-rated opponents. Credit is due to the numerous people who have contributed to the cause, manually or financially since we first entered in 1991. It is the combination of all those efforts which has built up the village and the community to the level it is at today.
Here in Terryglass we are very proud of our strong showing in the competition each year, and hope that in the coming years we will also regain our title as Irelands’ Tidiest Village!
