Clane Tidy Towns 2023 up and running!

Plant Swap & Award-Winning Estates results revealed

Clane Tidy Towns launched their 2023 campaign this morning at the Abbey with a well-supported plant swap and the announcement of Clane’s award-winning estates.

People from Clane and beyond brought and swapped plants of all shapes and sizes. The sun shone, holly blue butterflies danced and an early swallow sang overhead.

Clane Tidy Towns organise the annual estates competition to recognise the wonderful efforts of residents and resident’s associations, and this year the following estates were announced as Award-Winning:

Please drop down any Monday to find out more and get involved. This is Clane Tidy Town’s 50th year and with your support we all look forward to a most rewarding and enjoyable year ahead!
