Entente Florale Awards Ceremony 2018
4th September 2018
Tullamore town was nominated as one of two Irish entries in the European Entente Florale Competition in 2016, and went on to win a gold medal in the prestigious competition. This international competition aims to promote a greener and more pleasant environment in European towns and villages and to facilitate international contacts among the participants. Following on from the success in 2016, the town was successful in it’s bid to host the Entente Florale Awards Ceremony 2018. This Ceremony will bring up to 250 delegates and board members to Tullamore from 14 towns/villages throughout Europe. Irish past entrants in the competition (approx 100 guests) have also been invited to the Ceremony.
The Awards Ceremony will be held in the Tullamore Court Hotel on Saturday 22nd September. The board members & delegates will begin arriving on Thursday 20th September (as the Ploughing Championships draws to a close!). A number of events and tours are planned for the visitors throughout their stay.
It is a great achievement and honour for Tullamore to host this event, and an opportunity to showcase our wonderful town. This achievement is due largely to the commitment and enthusiasm of the people of Tullamore who, through their engagement with Tullamore Tidy Towns, the Chamber of Commerce, the “Tidy Tullamore” project sponsored by Tullamore Credit Union and Offaly County Council, joined “Team Tullamore” in a united effort to present our town in the best possible light.
Many of Tullamore’s residents & business owners take great pride in their buildings and green areas, we are asking that people would make an extra special effort to work together to have all our residential and business premises, shop fronts, and public areas looking well and especially litter free for our visitors.
Let’s work together to have Tullamore looking well for Entente Florale 2018.
