Dún Laoghaire Tidy Towns Group

We are a Voluntary Community Group working endlessly for a cleaner, tidier, greener, nicer and lively town in which to live, work, shop, stroll and visit.
We value and preserve our heritage. We are improving our green areas and our biodiversity, and our unique coastal environment.

We welcome volunteers of all backgrounds, ages and abilities.

We work closely with local businesses, other community organisations and Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown county council who provide us with significant financial support in the form of grants.

Come along and join us - we meet every Saturday morning 10h30 am at St. Michael's Square (corner of Marine Road and George's Street).

We also have an ongoing need for additional funds to meet our running expenses and finance some our projects.

Who We Are

The Dún Laoghaire Tidy towns group was re-established in January 2020.

We have a large and growing group of volunteers and we carry out many activities in the Dún Laoghaire area. 

Our objectives are:

Enhance the physical and social environment of Dún Laoghaire Town and its environs. 

Represent Dún Laoghaire Town in the National TidyTowns competitions, Tidy Districts, Dublin Neighbourhood Awards and any other competitions deemed beneficial to the promotion of the Town. 

Liaise with governing authorities such as Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council to aid in the development and management of a litter free, clean, green and biodiverse environment for the Town and its environs.

The group upholds equal opportunities and works towards good relations amongst all members of the community, specifically prohibiting any conduct which discriminates or harasses on grounds of race, age, religion, disability, political belief, sex or sexual orientation. The group is non-political and non-sectarian. 

All volunteers are most welcome to our group. You can also help us realise our projects and contribute to our running expenses by donating
