Tidy Towns

Ardara has once again entered the Tidy Towns competition and we need a great effort from everyone in helping make our town look good.It would be so important if owners of property in the town painted the outside of their premises. It would be very much appreciated and would make a huge difference.The Tidy Towns competition involves participating areas being rated on all aspects of their local environment and prizes awarded to the best under many different categories. The overall winner is “Ireland’s Tidiest Town”, which is announced at a national ceremony in September each year.

North Atlantic DriftDan MacDonald, Brian Taheny and Ross Griffiths are bringing their trio, North Atlantic Drift over to Ireland for a short tour. Beginning in Donegal, they will be performing at the Cup of Tae Festival from May 3rd to 6th.
Their music is outstanding… reels and jigs exceptionally well played… ringing fiddle harmonies and crisp ornamentation. They cover all the bases from Edinburgh to Ennis, Cape Breton to Cumberland Gap.” Folkworld #61
