Clare Fine Gael TD, Deputy Joe Carey, has said that Ennis’ 2021 SuperValu TidyTowns victory is a “monumental achievement” and is calling for a Civic Reception in honour of the work done by the volunteers involved.
It is the first time since 2005 that Ennis has won the overall award.
The announcement was made on Friday by Minister for Rural and Community Development, Heather Humphreys.
Deputy Carey said, “I want to extend many congratulations to Ennis TidyTowns who have won this year’s National TidyTowns award.
“This is a monumental achievement, and the hard-working volunteers deserve huge credit for their work this year and indeed over many, many years,” he added.
Deputy Carey believes that Clare County Council should mark the achievement by hosting a Civic Reception in recognition of the work of many volunteers, throughout the years.
“I am calling on Clare County Council to hold a Civic Reception for the volunteers who have selflessly given their time freely over the years. Today’s news is a huge boost to Ennis and an example to all of us around Clare as to what can be achieved through hard work and persistence. Their success is even more impressive in light of the pandemic and the challenges that has brought,” Deputy Carey concluded.
