Lismore has participated in the Tidy Towns competition since its early days. Steady progress over the years led to Lismore winning the South East Region Endeavour award in 1995. That same year, the town was chosen to represent Ireland in the Entente Florale Competition and won gold. In 2004, Lismore won the overall prize and title of Ireland’s Tidiest Town.

Our success is thanks to the hard-working Tidy Towns Committee; the 100+ volunteers who pick up litter daily throughout the spring and summer; staff and student of Blackwater Community Green School; Waterford County Council staff; and the business owners and residents who help keep Lismore looking lovely.
