Well the adjudication season is now over and what a way to finish for Donnybrook, by increasing our score by '13' points the biggest yet, bringing our new total to 276 points. The last 3 years have seen us increase our score by an impressive 33 points and well on our way to achieving our goal of Towards 290/2019 plan. Next stop the premier league. Thanks to all who have helped us along this incredible journey.
A big warm congratulations to Bird Hill Co Tipperary for their overall national win with 332 points and also to Skerries for keeping Dublin on the map with 331 points. Also a neighbourhing salute to Ranelagh one of the biggest jumps in their score with additional 15 points bringing them up to 249. Well done Grace and crew. And finally to all TidyTowns groups and their teams of volunteers throughout the country. You should be so proud of the way you've presented your towns and villages to the visiting eyes. Keeping Ireland proud.
Finally, no rest for the wicked as our committee meet up again next week to plan for the 2018 ahead with exciting projects, hopefully more volunteers and stronger community of Donnybrook Village into the bargain. Go raibh mile maith agaibh go leir
