The big wait­ing game is on as Lis­towel gets nod

The Kerryman (North Kerry) - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

THE re­sults are in and Lis­towel has re­ceived it’s in­vi­ta­tion to the Na­tional Tidy Towns Awards Cer­e­mony in the Helix - but the re­sults are not out, just yet.

That comes on awards night. In the mean­time, Tidy Towns PRO Jackie Bar­rett has posed the big ques­tion per­fectly as she thanked all in town for con­tribut­ing to an even more beau­ti­ful streetscape this sum­mer.

“Yes, those long awaited tick­ets to the Helix have ar­rived. Lis­towel is in the pot for an award but will it be the award we’ve been striv­ing for?”

What­ever the re­sult, Lis­towel can take heart from the pas­sion it dis­played in the com­pe­ti­tion this year, as ever.

“How­ever none of this would have come about but for the ded­i­cated sup­port they re­ceived from you, the peo­ple of Lis­towel along with the coun­cil, the on-street work­ers, the CE work­ers, the lo­cal busi­nesses, the schools, those that turned up for the evening cleanups and all those who worked away in the back­ground, too many to men­tion them all. The Tidy Towns group are most grate­ful to you all,” Jackie said.

Mean­while, Lis­towel Tidy Towns chair­per­son Julie Glee­son and sec­re­tary Mary O’Han­lon who are trav­el­ling to On­tario to at­tend the In­ter­na­tional Com­mu­ni­ties in Bloom com­pe­ti­tion Awards in an­other nail-bit­ing prospect for the high-achiev­ing town.
