Dundrum Tidy Towns Committee was formally established in February 2010 and is constituted as an “open,” committee with three elected officers, namely a Chairman, Treasurer and Secretary.

Since it’s formation the Committee has been ably chaired by D.J. Butler, with the support of Vera O’Dwyer as Treasurer and Kyran Colgan as Secretary. Active membership consists of approximately 10 people, with supplemental support from a further 10 associated members, from time to time as work and planning demands.

The committee has now participated in two National Tidy Towns competitions and have made considerable progress since their inception.  They scored a very creditable 269 points in the 2010 competition which placed them joint third with Newcastle in their county category, and with only Emly and Kilsheelin (Both National winners) ahead of them. With an increased effort from everyone last year, and with the benefit of a full year of planning, they managed to improve their score in the competition by a further 9 points up to 278.

The activities of the Committee have given a fantastic boost to local community spirit and village awareness. The Committee’s activities to date have been funded by modest grants, donations, and fund raising activities. However, they now need to undertake more ambitious projects, which will require a greater level of funding and support.

The village is fortunate to be home to a fine array of historic buildings and features, as well as a fantastic natural environment and high quality outdoor amenities. The Committee’s long term aim is to maintain, improve and integrate all these assets in a way which will enhance the village experience for both residents and visitors alike. They hope that this in turn will help the village develop an even stronger sense of identity and continue it’s evolution, to being both a vibrant business centre and a gateway for leisure and environmental tourism.

They hope that this forthcoming Fashion Show, to be held in Dundrum House Hotel on the 2nd. March 2012 will give them the financial foundation to embark on a number of projects already identified in the village this year.
