Letterkenny improves in Anti-Litter League IBAL survey

Letterkenny is clean to “European Norms” according to the latest Anti-Litter League survey by IBAL - the Irish Business Against Litter group.

40 towns and cities were judged for the An Taisce report. Last year Letterkenny was found to be “moderately littered”.

The study found most towns in Ireland are now clean. However, pockets of major cities continue to suffer from significant levels of litter.

The An Taisce report on Letterkenny stated: “Letterkenny Town Park deserves a special mention as it was not just clear of litter but it is an extensive area which has been very clearly presented and maintained.

“It is great to see such a wonderful resource so well respected.

“Port Road was a nicely laid out road with some striking sculpture and the Upper and Lower Main Streets were in very good order with substantial planter boxes and hanging baskets adding to the overall atmosphere.”

The survey found the N14 heavily littered.

Kilkenny once again topped the table followed by Enniscorthy, Kildare and Waterford City.
