Oh the excitement is at an all time high, the champagne glasses are all buffed and streak free, the suits are all pressed and ironed, the ball gowns have been flown in from Milan….. Only kidding, still looking forward to tomorrow evening. 8.30pm in the Clara Inn. The finalists for both the Best Residential Area and Best Commercial Premises for Millstreet Tidy Town Association 2015 Award will be announced tomorrow evening. It was an extremely difficult decision this year as the town was looking so well and so much effort put in by a lot of people. The finalist from each category have been informed. So looking forward to see you all there.
Millstreet Tidy Town Association are pleased to announce that Cork County Council will be upgrading the footpath from Barrett’s Corner down to Noel C. Duggan’s. This is a great success for the Millstreet Tidy Town Association as we have been lobbying Cork County Council to under take this work for some years now. Work will commence before the end of 2015 we are assured. As always we will keep you up to date with any information we receive regarding this work and when it is due to commence.
Millstreet Tidy Town are very proud to announce that this afternoon in The Helix in Dublin, it was announced that Millstreet received 302 points in the annual Tidy Town competition for 2015. This is an increase of 5 points on last years results. This is a huge achievement. So may thanks to all in all involved, big and small efforts made a lot of difference. Whilst we bask in the glow of this brilliant result, we must also bear in mind that we have plenty more work to do to prepare for next year. Only 20 points behind the overall winner Listowel, in our category. These points are precious and hard to achieve. Also we were only 1 point off receiving a bronze medal. So just think of what one small thing that you may have done that could have contributed to gaining that extra point. We are capable of most definitely achieving a Silver medal next year. So get the thinking caps on. New volunteers are always welcome, just send us an email, pm on Facebook or tweet if you like. Remember Tidy Town is all year, not just for the Summer. Congratulations to all involved. 2015 Adjudicator Results
Howdy folks, as requested here are the full results of the Anti Litter Competition 2015. Not a bad result. As you can see from results our strongest week was our last week @ 996.60 points. The first rounds, there was a huge amount points lost and a big part of that was due to cigarette butts on the street. There are plenty of bins in town and also outside almost all of the pubs and fast food restaurants in town have outdoor ashtrays. So there really is no excuse for cigarette butts being thrown around the street. Please just take a minute when you put it out and then just bin it. Again congratulations to all involved, massive result.
Hot off the presses lads and lassies, Millstreet has just received 2nd place in our Category for Anti Litter Challenge 2015. Dunmanway placed 1st and Blarney placed 3rd, which is not bad company to be in at all. This is an amazing result. All the hard work and effort that the people of this town have put into this competition this year has really paid off. The place of 2nd place comes with a prize fund of €1200 which will go a long way to help Millstreet Tidy Town with their annual spend which can run up to €10000. So be very proud of yourselves people, even the smallest effort is so appreciated. Keep up the good work. We would also like to thank Cork County Council, sponsors of the annual competition. First place next year is on the horizon. The excitement is building, bring on the Tidy Town results and lest we forget the Best Commercial and Best Residential Competition the Millstreet Tidy Town are running this year.
On 3rd September, Thursday evening next, a representative group for Millstreet Tidy Town Association will be attending the results evening in Cork County Hall. We will find where we have placed in Anti Litter Challenge for 2015. Fingers crossed. If we win this the money which is in the prize fund will go along way to help Millstreet Tidy Town Association with the annual costs that are incurred each year. Here’s hoping for a good result.

Millstreet Tidy Town Association are delighted to report that with the help of Millstreet Macra, and under the watchful eye of Gordon, the clean up at St Mary’s Cemetery was a huge success. There were lots of hard workers pulling weeds in the pathways, raking and edging as well. Colman was able to spray the paths this evening I left. It just goes to show with a little help we can achieve massive things. We hope to continue with these projects in the future and really hope that more people will come and volunteer. A massive thank you to Millstreet Macra and especially Lil Millstreet Macra, loads of work done this evening. A massive thank you to all involved.

This has been funded under the Cork County Council’s “Local Agenda 21” Scheme and of course installed with the assistance of our local FÁS CE Scheme. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all involved who helped to get the Water Butt installed. This really aids our efforts in water sustainability.
