Ireland's Best Kept Town Awards

The Isdell Courtyard, Ridell Hall in Queen’s University, Belfast, was the impressive location for the 2024 Ireland’s Best Kept Towns awards. There were 13 nominees in total - 6 from Northern Ireland and 8 from the South. Host was David Maxwell from BBC’s Radio Ulster with addresses from Doreen Musket, Chair, Northern Ireland Amenity Council, John Smith, Deputy Secretary, Department of Communities NI and Mary Hurley, Secretary General, Department of Rural and Community Development ROI.

Categories included Ireland’s Best Kept Village, Small Town, Large Town and Large Urban Centre. Dromiskin was thrilled  to be shortlisted and nominated in the Small Town section. Winner here was the picturesque Randalstown in County Antrim. Other winners included: Best Kept Village -  Malin, County Donegal; Best Kept Large Town - Roscommon; Best Kept Large Urban Centre - Derry.

What an honour for our village to be included in such hallowed company! Though not victorious on this occasion, we received a lovely certificate to mark and celebrate the occasion. 

Our attention is now turned to the 2024 SuperValu National Tidy Town competition where we hope to build on last year’s success. Work across the village is underway and all available help is greatly appreciated
