History was made at the Louth Looking Good awards which were held in the Fairways Hotel on Thursday 16th November. There were gasps of surprise and shouts of joy from the large gathering when the overall winner in the Towns and Villages section was announced by MC on the night, Mary Murtagh. This category has been dominated for the past number of years by the impressive Blackrock and previously it was Tallanstown, past winner of the National Tidy Town award, that was in the ascendancy. But, this year, Dromiskin emerged victorious pipping their trailblazing Mid-Louth neighbours in to second and third place respectively thus bringing the Tommy Reilly perpetual trophy to the village for the first time ever. How apt it was to see Tommy’s son, Liam, local councillor and secretary of Dromiskin Tidy Towns receive the impressive trophy from Chairperson Louth County Council, Ms Paula Butterly.


This award was the icing on the cake on what was a memorable night for our Tidy Towns group. In addition to the overall award, Dromiskin were winners of the Best Waste Minimisation Project, the Biodiversity Award, the Age Friendly Award, the Tree Award and were third in the Best Seasonal Display category. Adding further to the celebrations was the announcement of Church View, Dromiskin, as winner of Best Overall Housing Estate in County Louth. This was a fitting accolade for Eileen Mulligan and her team of enthusiastic volunteers who have transformed their estate in to one of the jewels of the crown in the community. Daniel’s Take-Away was a local winner in the Shop Front awards.


Chairperson Paula Butterly and CEO Louth County Council, Joan Martin, thanked and praised Louth Tidy Towns Together for organising this impressive event. They also expressed their gratitude to the volunteers from around the county for their selfless commitment to their local communities and for promoting best environmental practices. Sean Mc Cormack, Monasterboice Tidy Towns, was the winner of Environmentalist of the Year.


The delighted Dromiskin contingent raised a glass to celebrate their achievements. Great credit goes to all who contributed in any way to what has been an historic year - a first time silver medal in the National Tidy Towns competition followed by being crowned as best in the county in the LLG awards. Onwards and upwards to 2024!!
