Birdhill is Ireland’s Tidiest Town for 2017

Birdhill has beaten the 870 towns and villages throughout the country that entered this year’s competition.

The village joins Kilsheelan, Terryglass and Emly who have won the overall award for the Premier County in the past.

CEO of Tipperary County Council Joe MacGrath says it’s well deserved recognition for Birdhill.

Other winners included Clonakilty in Cork which was named Ireland’s Tidiest Small Town.

Westport in Mayo got the nod for the Tidiest Large Town, while Ennis in County Clare was again declared Ireland’s Tidiest Large Urban Centre.
