Delgany Tidy Towns, County Wicklow scoop prize money of €2,000

Well done to Delgany TidyTowns who were announced overall winner of the Waters and Communities Special Award at the SuperValu TidyTowns awards ceremony held in the RDS, Dublin today.  In their application, the group demonstrated a great appreciation for their water environment and water heritage by undertaking innovative initiatives during the Pandemic and are worthy winners. They set up RiverWatch and carried out a Citizen Science investigation of the Three Trouts Stream system – mapping its course, tributaries, land-use, risks, pressures and water quality. They organised volunteers to take part in Earthwatch Dublin Waer Blitz, recording 50 samples. Getting completely immersed, they hosted a Water Heritage Workshop during Heritage Week in August and also facilitated Greystones and Delgany Junior Tidy Towns to re-connect with their local river and streams.
