Listowel Wins 10th Tidy Towns Gold Medal

Listowel has once again shown the county how it’s done when it comes to keeping the town clean, tidy and colourful.
The Listowel Tidy Towns 2017 Committee have done Trojan work to impress the judges and gain their tenth Gold Medal.
Listowel increased their score from 2016 by 3 points making it Kerry’s highest scorer this year.

It’s good news also that most of the Kerry entrants increased their score from last year but Listowel outshone them all.
