Millstreet Tidy Town are very proud to announce that this afternoon in The Helix in Dublin, it was announced that Millstreet received 302 points in the annual Tidy Town competition for 2015. This is an increase of 5 points on last years results. This is a huge achievement. So may thanks to all in all involved, big and small efforts made a lot of difference. Whilst we bask in the glow of this brilliant result, we must also bear in mind that we have plenty more work to do to prepare for next year. Only 20 points behind the overall winner in our category – Listowel. These points are precious and hard to achieve. Also we were only 1 point off receiving a bronze medal. So just think of what one small thing that you may have done that could have contributed to gaining that extra point. We are capable of most definitely achieving a Silver medal next year. So get the thinking caps on. New volunteers are always welcome, just send us an email, pm on Facebook or tweet if you like. Remember Tidy Town is all year, not just for the Summer. Congratulations to all involved. Below is the 2015 Adjudicator Result :

Senior classes in Derinagree NS were invited to a creative writing workshop at Fighting Words in Dublin last Friday Sept 25th. They had a wonderful experience & returned home eager to put pen to paper!
Fighting Words was established by Roddy Doyle & Sean Love. Roddy wasn’t there on the day of our visit, but the organisers kindly agreed to ask him (nicely) to sign the books we hauled to Dublin!!
