About Kinsale Tidy Towns
From April to end of November each year, a dedicated group of volunteers meet usually on Wednesdays and Thursdays depending on work needed to be done. They start at 7.00 p.m. and usually finish at around 9.30 p.m. Their work involves dead-heading flowers, weeding rose-beds and shrub-beds, picking up litter, washing dustbins throughout the town and generally keeping town’s main area in top shape.
They receive excellent support from Kinsale Town Council, Kinsale Harbour Commissioners and Cork County Council with major works such as renewal of paving, street lighting, seating, etc.
The Committe also gets great support from the Chamber of Tourism, Vintners Association, local hotels, restaurants and general businesses in the Kinsale.
