The Mayor of South Dublin County, Cllr Emma Murphy helped launch this year’s National Spring Clean month in South Dublin County and The Dublin Community Clean-Up Day, which is on Saturday 22nd April. At the launch in Tymon North, she was joined by Tymon North & St Aongus Tidy Towns and Cllr Charlie O’Connor. An Taisce’ s National Spring Clean is Ireland’s largest anti-litter initiative which runs for the month of April and interested community groups who are planning a community clean-up during the month of April can apply online at: www.nationalspringclean.org for a clean-up kit.
Mayor Cllr Emma Murphy praised Tymon North & St Aongus Tidy Towns who “work tirelessly to improve and maintain their area” and she commended the group on all the hard work that has already been carried out, considering they only started out on their Tidy Towns journey. Showing the commitment they and many other groups have in making change and improving their local communities. The Mayor “encourages everyone to get involved in National Spring Clean or The Dublin Community Clean-Up Day”.
South Dublin County Council has been supporting The Dublin Community Clean-up Day for the last several years, as it encourages all members of the community to come together and make improvements to our county. It is only when the community, business and the Council come together can we really achieve so much. Dublin Community Clean-up Day is supported by An Taisce and the 4 Dublin local authorities. For more information please visit www.dublincommunitycleanup.ie. The Council is committed to making South Dublin a litter free county. They encourage everyone to avail of the many resources provided by the council to improve and enhance your area. Some of these resources include the Social Credit Scheme which supplies volunteers with clean up materials and more. Details for all the above can be found at www.socialcredits.ie
