While Tidy Towns activities on the whole tend to be carried out in spring, summer and autumn, a local family continues to keep their area litter-free all year round.

The Hennessy family in Bennettsbridge has been carrying out regular litter-picks in their area. Last week they were joined in their activity by their grandfather, John (Gus) Hennessy, well known referee in GAA circles, now in his 84th year.
