Mount Uniacke are win New Entry Award at twelfth Annual Pride in Our Community Competition



Inch Tidy Towns secured second place New Entry Award at the 12th Annual Muintir na Tire Pride in our Community Awards held in Oriel House Ballincollig.
Their Project included the renovation of the old Pump in Mount Uniacke village by adding a bed of colour hanging baskets and a fresh coat of paint. Trimming of hedges on each side. It also included a new bed at entrance to village on right hand side as you come from Killeagh. This is to add summer colour and winter interest. This is all part of a plan to restore old features in the Inch /Mount Uniacke area.
Mayor of County Cork Councillor Seamus McGrath congratulated them and said that it was great to see the effort being put in by them and other community groups in developing locally-based Amenity/ Projects which are of long-term benefit to their local community all over County Cork’

Mr Sean Holland Chairman of the organising committee was keen to point out that competition also seeks to make local people conscious of their local environment and promotes litter free communities. He said the competition is open to all voluntary groups in County Cork. Sean added that the organisers had simplified the competition after consulting with local groups. He urged any group that were planning a project or were maintaining an existing project to consider entering the competition
