Excellent work and huge thanks to all community volunteers for attending our annual
An Taisce spring clean up on Saturday morning around Emy Lough, Mountain River and
Emyvale environs. Once again two skips were filled full of rubbish and still a few
other areas left to do another litter-pick. Many thanks also to our Minister Heather
Humphreys for visiting and for her continued support to our beautiful area.
PLEASE NOTE: Emyvale Tidy Towns requests that no advertising signs of any description
be erected on any of the approach roads to Emyvale Village or in the Village. These
signs were noted in a previous adjudication report and cost us valuable points. Also
they are an obstruction for grass cutting. Any signs placed along the approach roads
will be removed by the county council at the request of Emyvale Tidy Towns committee.
We appreciate your support in this matter.

1. Both our main Tidy Towns and Water and Communities Special Award applications
have been submitted. Tidy Towns adjudicators will begin their judging from early
June. We are encouraging individuals and businesses to please make an extra special
effort to keep their premises tidy and litter-free. All efforts will go towards our
final marks in the national competition.
2. No Sign Policy . Despite our best efforts on this, it appears there is not much
respect for what the Tidy Towns committee are trying to achieve in keeping the village
'signage free '. We have lost many marks in previous years for signs. It was very
disappointing and discouraging to see a multitude of various signs stuck up over
the past weekend and over the last few weeks. We would appreciate if everyone could
spread the word that we have a 'NO SIGN POLICY' for all approach roads to Emyvale
Village and this includes the Main Street.
3. On behalf of our committee many thanks to John and Patricia for attending the
community grant council presentations yesterday evening in the Four Seasons Hotel,

groups in our area, who where also presented with grants.
