Tidy Towns

The results from the national Tidy Towns marking were published last Monday. The markings for Kenagh village have been most pleasing to all concerned. The number of marks obtained by Kenagh village increased by ten points over last years results. Total marking obtained for 2014 were 266 which is very favourable when compared with other villages in the county. Almost all sections of the competition showed an increase over last year. The report is very detailed and very complimentary to the Kenagh and district Development Association. The local FAS workers and their supervisor and of course the owners and caretakers of buildings and open areas. The markings received by Kenagh puts it into a very challenging position for the immediate future. Headings under which judgements were made are as follows community planning, streetscape, built environment, landscaping,wildlife habitats, sustainable waste and resource management,tidiness and litter control, residential streets and housing areas, approach roads, streets and lanes. Thanks to all concerned and here’s to the future. We also send congratulations to all our neighbouring villages who continue to maintain such a high standard at national level down through the years.
