Community Involvement

2019 Adjudication Report Mark 44 out of 60

Cuireann an moltóir seo fáilte roimh Murroe (Maigh Rua) chuig comórtas Náisiúnta na mBailte Slachtmhara SuperValu 2019. Thank you for your entry form, map and photographs showing events etc. organised by you throughout the year. You also included your Murroe Tidy Towns Action Plan for 2019-2021 and we wish you well as you embark on this. We suggest that you review the Plan annually and only tick the boxes after the event has been carried out and not before. Your committee of eleven has the support of an additional eleven when jobs need to be done. We read that your members are involved in other community groups which will bring news of your activities to a greater number and we encourage and support this. You have the backing of a number of agencies and local businesses and your annual church gate collection is well supported by the community which pays tribute to your good work. Your involvement in the TidyTowns competition for over thirty five years has strengthened the community spirit in addition to adding to the beauty of your environment.

I note you have a good size of 11 committee members, and plenty committee meetings are held to monitor progress and plan ahead. It is positive to have connections with the Community Council and the others listed. I read your new plan and you have ambitious intentions for the next few years. The botanical survey is an impressive result of many hours of study and research – well done.It is great to see you are getting enjoyment and benefits from The Going for Gold local competition.This is a good initiative put in place by Ballyhoura and the 20 hours a week will be of assistance to you. The local businesses are willing to assist your good work as they appreciate what you are doing.The local people are well informed of your plans and activities. The contacts with the school is a good investment and the composting by the scouts is a great way of getting the youth involved and prepare them for taking a positive role in later life.I like your remark “all working with pleasure to create a better place for all to reside in.”

Thank you for your submission which included the entry form, your Action Plan, some supplementary material and your map which proved to be most helpful. You have now been involved for many years so it is great to read that to be sure our community has benefitted from that involvement. You are quite modest in your assessment of the contribution your group has been making to the betterment of Murroe and that is a likeable trait. It is good to read that the tiny steps of progress lead to a deeper sense of community and community pride. It is obvious that you are highly regarded among the business community and among the bodies that can make a difference to the quality of life of those who live in Murroe.
