This week’s Moment in Time will look back at the Portlaoise Tidy Town Awards in 2004.
Glendowns was the worthy winner of Best Overall Estate in Portlaoise.
Portlaoise were awarded ten marks in the National Tidy Towns Contest, with the late Jerry Lodge quoted “I think Portlaoise can take a bow for its performance.”
Other awards given out were Outstanding Achievement for Riverview and O’Moore Place and Most Attractive Shopfronts went to Zenn and Talking Heads.
The winner in the Commercial Building Category was Joe Ging in the Kea Lew Business Park, and then Beechlawn secured the Amenity Area award.
There are some great photos of the night, featuring some of our current Councillors and many familiar faces.
Check them out below.
