DALKEY TAKES HOME GOLD IN 2017 NATIONAL TIDY TOWNS AWARDS
  Over the 59 years of National Tidy Towns Awards, this year saw a record number of 870 entries. Earlier today, representatives from all over Ireland arrived at Dublin’s Helix Theatre to hear the results. Minister Michael Ring and RTE Presenters Mary Kennedy and Ann Cassin joined the SuperValu sponsor’s Martin Kelleher to hear who had come out on top. It was standing room only with full coverage by RTE to be aired later.
THE GREAT NEWS IS THAT DALKEY CAME IN THE TOP 5% OF ALL 870 ENTRIES
AND WON THE GOLD MEDAL IN THE CATEGORY FOR POPULATIONS OF BETWEEN 5,001 AND 10,000.

Dalkey also won a Highly Commended Award in the County Awards – another prized category.
   Big congratulations to our Dalkey Tidy Towns team who worked tirelessly throughout the year to keep us up there with the best of the best. Thank you also to DLRCC, our Shop Keepers, Business Owners and Neighbours, who all did their bit to achieve this major recognition. Present at the Helix Theatre to hear the good news wereDalkey Tidy Towns members Susan McDonnell, Des Burke-Kennedy. Frank Dillon and Terry Wheatley. Tonight, the Dalkey Tidy Towns team will all meet to celebrate in our Town – and tomorrow morning, they will be back in Dillon’s Park to continue their work to make even more improvements for the 2018 Awards !
FROM THE NATIONAL TIDY TOWNS GOLD ON MONDAY,   TO THE DLRCC TIDY DISTRICTS OVERALL WINNER TONIGHT - WHAT A WEEK FOR DALKEY !

Tonight, the impossible happened. We were delighted to receive the DLRCC Award for the best Town with a population of over 3,000 souls. A lovely painting was presented to commemorate the occasion. At that stage, we felt there was nothing left to win – but there was !
When Dean Eaton of DLRCC finally announced the OVERALL WINNER, we nearly fell off our seats. Yes, the Big One tonight was heading to Dalkey.

The beautiful Tidy Districts Overall Trophy was presented by An Cathaoirleach, Councillor Tom Murphy, to our Dalkey Tidy Towns team representatives, Blaithin O’Brien, Paddy Rigby and Des Burke-Kennedy.

Congratulations to all the other dedicated Tidy Towns groups and now that the 2018 awards are just 12 months away, we had better get back to work as it will be even tougher to defend all these fantastic awards once again.
