     Minister Shane Ross and DLRCC Cathaoirleach Ossian Smyth joined Councillors Mary Fayne, Mary Hanafin and many others at DunLaoghaire Town Hall in congratulating Dalkey Tidy Towns team on winning two major awards tonight. With 36 entrants all hoping to win that coveted OVERALL GOLD MEDAL in this year's DLRCC Tidy Districts Ceremony, the look of surprise on our faces said it all ... Blaithin O'Brien, Terry Wheatley and Des Burke-Kennedy of Dalkey Tidy Towns were so impressed by the many achievements of other associations and groups that taking gold for the second year in succession was not really expected !
     What a great honour ! Being also awarded BEST TOWN Gold added even more to a great evening.
Congratulations to all in our Dalkey Tidy Towns team for the enormous commitment over this past year. These two gold medals are greatly appreciated. Thank you also to DLRCC for their support and encouragement and in particular to Dean Eaton who always has a new project to keep us alert and on our toes

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, Terry Wheatley 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.
