Our Track Record

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.

Tidy Towns Group AGM

AGM 5th Oct 2021 Minutes
Kildorrery Tidy Towns Group held their AGM in the Oaklawn Centre on Tuesday the 5th of October.

The Chairman Ted Enright opened the meeting by saying that 2020/2021 had been very difficult for everyone due to Covid and hopefully we have turned a corner and day to day living will improve from now on.

As regards tidy towns work it was a matter of maintenance rather than carrying out new projects. Ted thanked the committee for their work in trying times. He thanked all those who went out picking litter when it was safe to do so keeping the village and approach roads litter free. He thanked the various sponsors for their contributions over the last couple of years and the post office, shops, pubs and the community for their assistance in fundraising. Also the workers on the Rockmills Community Employment scheme who do tremendous work.

Election of Officers:
Chairman: Ted Enright
Vice Chairman: Alan Meader
Secretary: Conor Maguire
Asst. Secretary: Joanne Hunter
Treasurer: Marie Collins
Asst Treasurer: Noreen Dunne
PRO: Kerene Gallagher

Thanks to Frank O’Sullivan for liaising with the Primary School and to the teachers, staff and pupils for their involvement with the group.

Ted thanked the outgoing secretary Diarmuid Murphy for his work with Tidy Towns. Each year Diarmuid had the onerous task of compiling the Tidy Towns application. He could regularly be seen mowing the grass on the approach roads to the village and the walkers on the Scart/Meadstown/Ballynoe ring are very grateful to him for mowing the verges making it safer for them to use. Thank you Diarmuid for your advice and all your work!

The results of this year’s competition will be known in November and it will be taken into account the work that each group have managed to undertake despite difficult circumstances.

Kildorrery have gained marks over the years in each category but we are finding the category of Sustainability – Doing More With Less more challenging. This involves making our community more sustainable in the area of water, transport, waste, energy and climate action. If anyone is interested in this area and has some knowledge and information, we would be delighted with your input.

For further information and if you would like to join the group in any capacity please contact the Community Office 022-25777 or contact Ted and Conor.

The Tidy Towns group are looking forward to the coming year and hopefully we can continue with our work in enhancing Kildorrery making it a better place for our community to live and work.
