Going-for-gold

The Champions Category will be made up of the following groups:

  • 2011 – Castletroy View Residents Association
  • 2012 – Janesboro Tidy Towns
  • 2013 – Annacotty Tidy Towns
  • 2014 – Caherdavin Tidy Towns & Residents Association
  • 2015 – Castleconnell Tidy Towns
  • 2016 – Glin Tidy Towns & Development Association
  • 2017 – Adare Tidy Towns
  • 2018 – Athea & Kilteely

How the Limerick Going for Gold Champions Category will work

• Each of the champion areas will be awarded a starting pot of €1,600.
• For each item of litter seen on judging day €20 will be deducted from the starting amount of €1,600.
• The more items of litter found, the more is lost from the starting €1,600.
• Anything “lost” goes into a winner’s pot and will be awarded to the “Champion of Champions” for 2019. This will be the area with the least litter on the day/s of judging.
• There will be other runner up/incentive prizes in this category.
• Judges/Assessors for this category are expected to visit all Champion Participant areas on the week beginning 2- 5th of September 2019.
