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