Kildorrery Tidy Towns was formed in the early 1990's. Over the years we have entered numerous Tidy Towns competitions namely, the National Tidy Towns Competition, Ballyhoura Country Tidy Towns Awards and the Cork County Council Anti-Litter Challenge. We have gained good marks in all these competitions and we continue to strive to be successful in our endeavors. 
Kildorrery village and community is powered by community volunteerism and passionate belief of all, that we have a unique community in which our families and generations to come will have a special place to belong to and grow up in. 
"The dearest land on earth to me
Is that which holds Kildorrery
As I step on my native isle
I see the people's genial smile
I see them laugh and it makes me glad
Though much there is that makes me sad
But the clouds that dim my native sky
Shall pass away in the by and by
Hope and joy and mirth greets me
When I am going to Kildorrery"
- Patrick Denihan, Poet and Teacher
