Ireland’s ‘Cleanest Town’ To Be Announced Today

Patrick Street, Tullamore. Tullamore was ranked the cleanest town in the country by Irish Business Against Litter (IBAL) in 2017.

Ennis, Roscommon and Kildare are Ireland’s cleanest towns.

A survey by Irish Business Against Littter found improvements overall, with one part of Limerick being the only area considered ‘seriously littered’.


In this survey of 25 towns and 15 city areas 88% were judged to be ‘clean’, with 40% ‘cleaner than the European average’.

But the survey found increased littering in Dublin City Centre, in disadvantaged areas of our cities, and on roads outside of towns.

Navan and Carlow both fell into the ‘moderately littered’ category.

Just one area – Galvone in Limerick city – was designated as ‘seriously littered’.

Waterford was the country’s cleanest city, while Tallaght – previously a litter blackspot – was the fifth cleanest town in the country.

The overall winner will be announced later today.
