Buncrana Tidy Towns Initiative received the Local Authority Pollinator Award for their outstanding work in this area while Carrigart was a joint winner of the Gaeltacht award
Other winners included Doochary, Malin, and Donegal town from 41 towns and villages across Donegal which entered the 2017 competition. Cllr McMonagle said the hard work and commitment of all involved should be highly commended.
“I am delighted to see that Danny Martin from Raphoe Tidy Towns Committee has been awarded the Community Hero award in this year’s competition and I would like to congratulate all those Tidy Town Committees who received medals and awards, including my own town of Letterkenny,” Cllr McMonagle said.
“But I would also like to congratulate all those other Tidy Town Committees who entered this competition. It is no easy task entering this competition. It requires a lot of hard work and dedication from everyone in the community and in particular from those on the committees.”
