Kildare has been announced as the cleanest town in Ireland. The announcement was made at the Finale of the 2016 Anti-Litter League by Irish Business Against Litter (IBAL) in the Merrion Hotel in Dublin today.
Kildare finished ahead of Roscommon and Ashbourne, with Waterford City in fourth. A special public sculpture will be commissioned for the town to mark the achievement.
2016 saw an increase in litter levels across Ireland, especially in city areas, but almost three quarters of our towns were Clean to European Norms. The latest survey by business group Irish Business Against Litter showed Galvone in Limerick City to be bottom of its ranking of 40 towns and cities.
