Fleadh committee honour contribution of Mullingar Tidy Towns

The Fleadh Executive Committee honoured one of the many organisations that contributed to a successful Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann this summer on Saturday morning.

They invited members of Mullingar Tidy Towns to The Greville Arms Hotel to make a contribution to their funds.

Joe Connaire and Willie Penrose, cathaoirleach and leas-cathaoirleach of the Fleadh Executive Committee, welcomed Mullingar Tidy Towns representatives Cllr Bill Collentine, chairperson; Rosie McCormack, Tus supervisor; and John Bawle, co-ordinator, to present a cheque, in recognition for all the help Mullingar Tidy Towns contributed before, during and after the fleadh in Mullingar.

Cllr Collentine was delighted to accept “the kind gesture from the fleadh committee”.

He said the Mullingar Tidy Towns volunteers were honoured to be part of what was an amazing event in the town and he thanked all the others who were involved in making ‘The Homecoming’ fleadh an amazing event.

Cllr Collentine noted that it was wonderful to see so many groups and volunteers working with the fleadh committee and Westmeath County Council to make sure Mullingar looked its best, and pointed out the importance of that for the half a million visitors.

He expressed his confidence that everyone will all work together again next year to achieve the same results.

Mullingar has remained clean and impressive and the financial contribution will go to help Mullingar Tidy Towns make further improvements in Mullingar to ensure it is a place that we will all continue to be proud of, said Cllr Collentine.
