May 23rd last, saw the closing date for entry to the Supervalu National Tidy Towns Competition. Thurles has been missing from this competition for some years now, but I am happy to relate that a new & welcome voluntary committee aptly named “Refresh Thurles,” has been formed and Thurles has been entered in this competition once again. To this end this newly formed committee are encouraging residents to take more control of their immediate environment.

Refresh Thurles are now appealing to every Thurles resident to make a keen effort to keep their particular area clean and tidy and invite constructive comments regarding the town to their Email address refreshthurles@gmail.com

Their job ahead is not going to be an easy one, as our short video shows. The absence of a Tidy Town’s Committee operating in Thurles for some years and the failure of Thurles Town Council to implement already existing bye-laws, latter in particular with regards to behaviour regarding Advertising Posters, the protection of Trees planted in our urban areas etc, leave a lot to be desired.
