A landscape award for its work on a County Carlow golf course has been awarded to Rathdrum-based company Avondale Landscapes Ltd.

The chief-executive of Bord Glas, Michael Maloney, on behalf of the All-Ireland Association of Landscape Contractors, presented the award to Patrick Doyle of Avondale Landscapes at an awards ceremony in Dublin.

Avondale Landscapes were named winners in the Sports Ground Category for the southern region for its 'very high standard of ground shaping and finishing' at the Killerig Castle golf course near Tullow, 'and the planting of trees and transplants whips in providing excellent space division and golf hazards'.

Presenting the award, Mr Maloney congratulated Avondale Landscapes on achieving such a high standard and pointed out that the promotion of excellence in the amenity horticultural industry was 'vitally important' for the long-term future of the industry.
