The results of the Anti-Litter League survey of 40 towns and cities throughout Ireland revealed this morning that more than 40% were cleaner than the European average.
The business group behind the survey, Irish Business Against Litter indicated that a staggering 85% of our towns and cities were Clean To European Norms in 2014.
IBAL spokesman Conor Horgan stated: “These are excellent results which again bear out the fact that Ireland is broadly a very clean country. It is time we binned the stereotype that we are inherently a dirty or untidy nation and project our cleanliness as a real tourism asset.”
Only six areas fell short of “clean” status.
Drogheda, Maynooth and Tallaght, Cork, Limerick and Galway City were all Clean To European Norms, while Dublin City Centre was again “moderately littered”.
