The Tidy Towns competition is a national competition organised throughout Ireland each year by the Department of the Environment, Heritage and Local Government that aims to find the tidiest town in Ireland.
The Tidy Towns competition has been running in Ireland for over 50 years and each year attracts more than 700 local communities who compete for a cash award and the title of " Ireland's Tidiest Town " .
The competition has been proven to have a real impact on the vibrancy and prosperity of many Irish towns and villages and encourages people to take pride in maintaining the heritage of their towns by presenting a clean, attractive environment, primarily for their own enjoyment and to attract tourist and commercial investment to the area.

Kells has been a part of this competition since 1994 and, as a result, has seen its standing increase steadily over the years, our Tidy Towns Group, many volunteers and our FAS scheme putting in long hours to improve the appearance of the village.
