The committee wish to thank everyone who supported the Church Gate collection last weekend which amounted to €485. This money will go towards the cost of flowers and hanging baskets which we provide to decorate the town over the summer months.

Appeal: We would like to see householders and business people decorating their premises with window boxes and hanging baskets also. We need to have our town looking its best for the Scarecrow Festival which attracts a large amount of visitors. It would be very much appreciated by the Tidy Towns committee for people to make that extra effort for ourselves and all the people that will visit the town over the summer months. A neat and tidy town creates a feel good factor for everyone and it’s so rewarding when we hear all the positive comments about Durrow. Your efforts are always very much appreciated.
