Rosslare Strand: Tidy Towns - Rosslare Tidy Towns very much appreciate all the help they are getting in keeping Rosslare free of litter and weeds.

Of course, there is so much more we could do but resources dictate. A little effort from more people would make a huge difference.

Our efforts are for the community and to continue with the success of the past three years, Adjudication finishes on August 4 this year so we would ask for everyone to do a little, but especially to Mind Your Own patch - what a difference that would make.
