Dundalk: 30th out of 40 towns / cities surveyed. Clean to European Norms.

Dundalk retains its clean status, with no heavily littered sites.

 

Very good sites in Dundalk included the County Museum, Dundalk Grammar School and Oriel Park Football Stadium – all were well presented and maintained.  It was noted that Castleblaney Approach Road was better than previous surveys but it is still some way off the top litter grade.  Dundalk Institute of Technology was let down by the cigarette butts at the entrance – this took away from an otherwise very freshly presented campus.

 

 

Dundalk Grammar School:  Grade A.  The high grade in previous surveys has been sustained at Dundalk Grammar School.

Action Quote

“You are never too old to set another goal or dream a new dream.”

Your action for today is to take time to remember a dream you may have had in your youth and see if you can do something towards achieving it.
