Get By With A Little Help From My Friends


Millstreet Tidy Town Association is always looking for a helping hand. This year alone we will spend over €10000. There is a lot of work that goes on that people don’t realise that it done on a voluntary basis and with a very limited fund. Essentially we don’t have one and rely totally on Grants received and very kind donations. This year is a particularly tough as we need to replace some rather expensive pieces of equipment, such as the Lawnmower which can cost up to €2000. Strimmers also. There is also the cost of seed for Herlihy’s, which in fairness to our volunteers is looking superb and will look even more so when we plant the wildflower seed which will cost in excess of €100. In short we are looking for Sponsors. Whether it is an individual or a local company or business, please we are asking for your help. We are very lucky with our current sponsors  and very appreciative of their support. The fact remains the entire town benefits from the work of Millstreet Tidy Town. Last year alone, Millstreet Town won 1st in the Anti Litter Competition, Bronze Medal in the Tidy Town Competition 2016, ran workshops with both of the Primary Schools and also the secondary school and Millstreet Tidy Town Association was the driving force behind all these.  Any individual, Local Company or Local Business that would like to discuss some form of sponsorship please do not hesitate to contact here on the website. Via email millstreettidytown@gmail.com, Via Facebook and you can speak to myself and I can give you details. All donations are gratefully accepted. Here’s to an even more successful 2017.

Planting in Town

As you may have noticed the Millstreet Tidy Town Association Volunteers have been quite busy over the last number of weeks. Almost all of the planters and tubs have been set with beautiful flowers over the last number of weeks. Please see pictures in the 2016 gallery for some pictures of the very hard work achieved. Just a reminder to everybody that is living/working near one of the tubs or planters, please, please can you water them. They will need to be watered 3 times a week even if it rains. The flowers for the poles will be out up very soon.

Calling all Volunteers

main_image (371 x 323)It’s a beautiful Sunday sunny morning and looking at tomorrow’s weather the forecast is jus as nice. So bearing this in mind some of our volunteers are going to give the picnic area on Drishane Road a little spruce up. So I am hoping that we can get some of the lovely people of Millstreet Town to come and help also. It will take half the time to do if we have plenty of bodies. All you need to bring is a paintbrush and your best Picasso impression. Young and not so young are all invited.  So tomorrow evening from 6.30pm meeting @ the picnic area on Drishane Road. See you there.

Busy Bees, Planting

Completed PlantersOn Tuesday, 12th May, the planting started, in the Millstreet Recycling Centre,  with the flowers sponsored by O’Keeffe’s Supervalu Millstreet. The planters that will be placed in various locations throughout the town have been set, thanks to the ladies and their little helper Seán. There is still plenty more flowers and planting to be done. If anyone would like to volunteer and help with the planting of flowers please contact us on this page, Facebook or Twitter. All volunteers are most welcome. Well done ladies the planters are looking beautiful. We look forward to see in which locations they will be placed. Further images can be seen under 2015 Gallery.
