Swords Tidy Estates Competition

Swords Tidy Towns have once again joined forces with Greyhound Recycling to find Swords’ tidiest estate with this year’s “Tidy Estates Competition”.

The competition was last held in 2019 and thankfully with the pandemic over, 14 estates took up the challenge this year.

Judging took place earlier this month. Estates were awarded marks for the presentation of their common areas (40%); Gardens (30%) and house exterior (30%).

The winning estate, Carlton Court, will receive a prize of Eur 500, a free skip for clean – up’s and a winners plaque. Presentation to be completed in due course. The standard of entries was exceptional from beautiful floral displays at entrances to home- made bug hotels. Please see Greyhound’ link for more.

Swords Tidy Towns have made great strides in competing in the National Tidy Towns Competition in recent years, having won 4 silver medals since 2017.  We hope the Tidy Estates Competition will help us improve our position even further.

We thank Greyhound Recycling for coming on board to support us in our efforts.
