1st in Leitrim

1st in Leitrim

For over thirty years now Dromod have taken 1st place in Leitrim in the National Tidy town’s competition. On Monday last in the Helix Dublin the awards ceremony took place and secretary of Dromod Tidy Towns committee John Reilly accepted 1st prize in Leitrim and a gold medal on behalf of his village. This is a great achievement for Dromod and it is just reward to all the great work that went into keeping the village so well. Dromod increased their score by 4 marks, so take a bow T.P. John and all involved. We will print the full adjudicators report in the coming weeks.
