Templemore Tidy Towns has continued to work unstintingly over several decades to ensure that our town is pleasant for natives and visitors alike. The appearance of our town has greatly improved over the years, thanks to the work of the members giving voluntarily of their time, along with assistance from our council workers, Fás and Tús workers, schools and members of the public. We greatly appreciate the efforts made by businesses and householders who keep their premises well maintained.
Major projects undertaken by the organisation include the improvements carried out on the exterior of the Town Hall, to reveal beautiful stonework; landscaping and planting of containers in the Square; involvement in the painting of premises to counteract dereliction; landscaping on the approach roads and maintenance of the site of the old church, An Teampall Mór, in the Park. Over the years our marks in the annual competition have continued to improve and we are always commended for our work by the judges. In 2010 we undertook the compilation of a pictorial history of Templemore and with assistance from many proud citizens of Templemore we published ‘Templemore Through the Lens of Time’. Members have been involved with the provision of a Heritage Trail in the town in 2014, which highlights the wonderful and diverse range of natural and historic sites that is our heritage.
Every spring we review our work and plan for the year ahead. The popularity of the woodlands for walking and jogging is growing. From March until September the members work on Monday evenings. We pick litter, maintain landscaped areas, plant and care for summer bedding, remove ivy from walls etc. Volunteers are always welcome and will find great satisfaction in lending a hand to make Templemore even more beautiful. Ní neart go cur le chéile. We are very happy to welcome the many Ukrainians hands who have come to help us in recent times.
Volunteers are always required. If you’ve a few spare hours we’d love to hear from you to help with various projects around town so do get in touch with us either on the Templemore website or fb / instagram pages. Many Thanks, Templemore Tidy Towns.
