Seven estates share funding
Seven different groups will share €8,000 as part of Wicklow Municipal District's Estate Management awards.
The successful estates were Mountain View Drive, Newtownmountkennedy; Graham's Court, Wicklow town; BBH Group, Wicklow town; Glen Chill, Glenealy; Sycamore Drive, Newtownmountkennedy, Woodview, Ashford and Seaview Heights, Rathnew.
Entrants had to show what exact plans they had for the maintenance of their estates, from hedge cutting to the mowing of communal areas and ensuring they remain tidy. Municipal District Cathaoirleach, Cllr John Snell, presented the cheques to each lucky selected.
Traditionally Wicklow County Council's housing department selected the awards winners, but this year the responsibility was handed over to each municipal district instead.
