Fingal Independent - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

THE Swords Best Busi­ness Frontage com­pe­ti­tion 2017 held in con­junc­tion with the Fin­gal Hor­ti­cul­tural So­ci­eties An­nual Show and sup­ported by Swords Tidy Towns was once again a huge suc­cess with 20 busi­nesses bat­tling it out for the ti­tle.

The Clarke Per­pet­ual Cup was awarded to the over­all win­ner, the Lord Mayor’s Pub for their mag­nif­i­cent flo­ral dis­plays.

Gold Cer­tifi­cate Awards also went to: Carnegie Court Ho­tel, Cock Tav­ern, Look Mam No Hands Ap­ple­wood, Old School­house Bar & Restau­rant, Tir­conaill B&B.

Sil­ver Cer­tifi­cate Awards went to: The Grill House, Mor­ton & Flana­gan, The Old Bor­ough, The Pound, Main­scourt Elec­tri­cal, & Master­sons Steak­house.

Highly Com­mended Awards went to: Ivory Coast Sun, Go To Print, The Book Haven, Ki­wisun Tan­ning & Beauty Sa­lon, Kieran James Hair Shop, Thun­ders Bak­ery, Em­pire & NF Cakes.

The com­pe­ti­tion was open to all busi­nesses in Swords, big or small, and had the sup­port of Fin­gal County Coun­cil.

The aim was to recog­nise and re­ward the con­tri­bu­tion of lo­cal busi­nesses to the Swords en­vi­ron­ment, and judg­ing took into ac­count hang­ing bas­kets, win­dow boxes and over­all frontage ap­pear­ance, and other flo­ral dis­plays which en­hanced the over­all ap­pear­ance of the premises.

The So­ci­ety would like to con­grat­u­late all those who took part, for mak­ing Swords a town that we can all be very proud of. The Com­mit­tee had a dif­fi­cult de­ci­sion to make, and Swords busi­nesses are tes­ta­ment to that.

The win­ners were an­nounced at the Fin­gal Hor­ti­cul­tural Show which was held in St. Colm­cille’s GFC.

There were over 600 ex­hibits rang­ing from flow­ers to pot plants, veg­eta­bles, fruit, eggs, bak­ing, paint­ings, pho­tog­ra­phy, hand­crafts and spe­cial chil­dren’s sec­tion. The show is one of the old­est tra­di­tions in Swords, and is now in it’s 75th year.
