Video: Abbeyshrule wins the 2012 Tidy Towns Competition

Abbeyshrule rules the roost in Tidy Towns 2012, for not only did the south Longford community claim victory in the Small Village category, they also scooped the prestigious overall winner’s trophy.

The Leader travelled to Abbeyshrule, took in the marvellous scenery, and interviewed Philip Butler, chariman of the Tidy Towns committee and one of the driving forces behind their ascendency in the competition.
