The Tidy Towns competition is a celebration of all that is best in Irish life, community spirit, a desire to enhance the environment and, above all, an example of how people working together can improve everyday life in towns and villages throughout the country.

Out of 832 towns and villages who took part in the competition Moynalty, Co Meath, was yesterday declared Ireland's tidiest town and village, with 316 marks.

This didn't happen overnight, as the adjudication reports for the village reveal.
