Roscommon Among Cleanest Towns in Ireland
Roscommon has placed joint 3rd in a list of the cleanest towns in the country according to IBAL.
A new survey on litter has found that 80% of Irish towns and cities are as clean, or cleaner, than their European counterparts.
Roscommon joins the towns of Tullamore and Leixlip as well as the environs of Dublin Airport rounding out the top four.
Roscommon jumped 6 places from last year with Kilkenny dropping from the top spot.
Minister for the Environment Denis Naughten welcomed the survey but expressed concern that there are still litter issues in Limerick city, Dublin’s North Inner City and Cork City North.
Mr Naughten said he was pleased to see that the respective councils had evidently taken steps to improve these areas, but again urged them to increase their efforts.
