Written 3 years ago by Newsroom

Abbeyleix and Tullamore have won gold medals at the National Tidy Towns Awards.

They’re the only two towns in the Midlands to receive such recognition, while Ballinahown, Geashill and Portlaoise won silver medals.

Geashill picked up the County Offaly award, while Ballinahown was victorious in Westmeath and Abbeyleix won in Laois.

It’s been a successful couple of days for Tullamore, after the town also won a gold medal at the European Entente Florale competition.

Chair of Tullamore Tidy Towns Committee Tommy McKeigue, says they want to win Ireland’s overall award.
