Those gentle hours that plenty bade to bloom,From “The Deserted Village”
Those calm desires that asked but little room,
Those healthful sports that graced the peaceful scene,
Lived in each look, and brightened all the green;
We have taken part in the Tidy Towns Competition every year, since 2006. Here are the summary remarks for the past several years along with links to the adjudication reports.
2019 Competition Results
Dunlavin is a beautiful village with much to recommend it that this adjudicator hadn’t realised before as I had only ever driven through and not stopped.

2018 Competition Results
I was very impressed by the architectural quality of your streetscape and enjoyed my visit to your beautiful village. Try to consider locations for large growing trees to help continue the rich natural heritage that previous generations planted.

2017 Competition Results
You have gained marks this year across a number of the Competition categories. Dunlavin Tidy Towns and your support network have put a great effort in to make Dunlavin a better place to live, work and visit and your desire to retain the status of Dunlavin as an attractive Heritage Town is evident. You have plenty of scope for improvement across some categories and it would be worth giving these additional focus in the coming year. We hope you found our comments helpful and we wish you well in your endeavours for the year ahead.

We commend the members of Dunlavin TidyTowns and your support network (who assist you with clean-ups and fundraising) for maintaining and enhancing your town. You have raised your marks this year in some categories and have a number of projects underway or planned that will hopefully come to fruition in time for next year’s competition and should assist you in gaining more marks. We hope that you can take on board some of the recommendations to further assist you. Overall, you should be pleased with your efforts – congratulations!
