Wicklow Fine Gael TD Simon Harris commended the efforts of Tidy Towns committees around County Wicklow.
Aughrim continued last year’s success by winning another gold medal in its category in the Tidy Towns 2012 Competition.
Stratford on Slaney was highly commended and Wicklow Town commended in the regional awards, while Glenealy was recognised with the Endeavour Award for having made significant improvements on last year’s performance.
Welcoming the results, Deputy Harris said, ‘The awards are richly deserved and reflect the work that has gone into towns around Wicklow. The Tidy Towns competition is a great example of what can be done by local communities to improve the towns they live in. It is fantastic for getting the community interested and involved in their surroundings and the results have demonstrated the great work done throughout Wicklow over the last year.’
‘I would like to extend my congratulations to all those involved in the Tidy Towns efforts around Wicklow and I look forward to working with the committees for the 2013 competition.’

Fine Gael Wicklow TD Simon Harris has welcomed the allocation of €670,000 to smarter travel and public transport projects in Wicklow. These projects are being funded as part of the Government’s Jobs Initiative.
Deputy Harris said, “I welcome the announcement of this funding, which provides for the improvement of pedestrian facilities in Rathdrum, the provision of footpaths in Roundwood, and Wicklow Town, new traffic calming measures in Enniskerry, and a bridge to the Cliff Walk in Greystones. Each of these communities will benefit in a tangible way from this funding.”
“I would like to thank my colleague Minister Varadkar for making this funding available. This funding shows the government’s commitment to improving transport links between communities in county Wicklow and is another example of how targeted funding can have a significant impact in local communities. I would urge Wicklow County Council to begin work on these important projects as quickly as possible.”
