The 2021 Green Flag Awards were announced last Wednesday by An Taisce Environmental Education, acknowledging Ireland’s best public Parks and Gardens.

Longford County Council was recognised with a Green Glag Award for The Mall (Albert Reynolds Peace Park).

The Green Flag Award Scheme is the mark of a quality park or green space and is recognised throughout the world.

International accreditation for public park excellence in Ireland has increased again this year, to reach over 100 accredited public green spaces.

Minister of State for Community Development and Charities; Joe O’Brien stated, “I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the hard work put in by park staff, and community volunteers, across the country. Not only in achieving this Green Flag Success, but in maintaining the many parks, gardens, and greens across the country for our mutual benefit. It is a great credit that they largely remained open and well managed at this difficult time.”
