Local villages have done well in this year’s Louth Looking Good Awards organised by the network Louth Tidy Towns Together.

Anticipation was high as a capacity crowd of tidy towns and residents association members descended on the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Dundalk for the announcement of the 2017 results. With Indaver as lead sponsor and financial assistance from Louth County Council as well as Louth Leader through the Rural Development Programme, Louth Looking Good is a fitting public expression of the work of countless individuals who undertake work in their local communities to make them better places to live, work and visit.

The formal proceedings were preceded by the showing of a stunning video by Ken Finnegan from Newspics which highlighted beyond doubt that not only is Louth Looking Good but is, in fact, looking spectacular.

The Chairman of Louth County Council, Councillor Colm Markey, was fulsome in his praise for all involved in the presentation of towns, villages and housing estates in the county, which sees Louth punching well above its weight in the National Tidy Towns Competition as was evidenced by the remarkable results achieved this year.

The big winner on the night was Blackrock who scooped the Overall Award as well as taking home the prize for Best Presented Graveyard and coming second in the Waste Minimisation Special Award. Former National Tidy Towns Winner Tallanstown came second overall as well as winning prizes for three of its housing estates.
