Blackrock in Louth was given the claim of the tidiest small town, the Large Town award went to Westport in County Mayo, while Ennis in County Clare won Tidiest Large Urban Centre.
Minister for Rural Development Michael Ring made the presentation in Dublin this afternoon.
Tom Butler, a committee member at Ballincollig Tidy Towns, says it’s a full-time job:
"We don't stop at any time during the year."
There's a lot of work involved the whole year-round and in the summer months especially we're alot busier where everyone is out 2 or 3 nights a week."
