Strokestown Tidy Towns committee has been operating since the early 1960’s when the nationwide Tidy Towns competition was introduced.
A vibrant and active committee has been formed for 2022 onwards and are determined to increase local awareness of important national biodiversity issues, introduce new ways for our community to come together and develop existing town amenities for the enjoyment of residents and visitors.
Our Executive Committee, and Core Group (all volunteers) is working hard to develop strong links with all bodies offering Amenity Grants and will use all monies to finance a clearly-defined range of innovative actions aimed to benefit the whole of Strokestown.
We are pleased to be able to benefit from the TUS and CE schemes and are keen to expand the workforce available under these auspices.
A huge THANK YOU to all who give their time to support us and our community. If you'd like be part of our interesting and fun future contact us, either by email or via our popular Facebook page.

The residents of Tower View have a beautiful estate and should be hugely proud of their continued work.
A stunning area with a beautiful entrance way framed with stunning shrubs, flowers and decorative stone. Inside the walls are well maintained lawns, driveways and main green area. It is a credit to those that live there and especially those that maintain, sow and are actively involved in keeping it beautiful.
Situated behind the The Percy French Hotel this is a peaceful and quiet area. A well maintained green area is the centre piece of the residential area. A neat sign adorns the entrance to the estate. Well done to everyone involved in the maintenance of the estate.

Well done to all the residents and especially those that make the extra effort to keep it maintained and looking vibrant.
