Ballinahown to Represent Ireland in European Competition

Ballinahown to represent Ireland in Entente Florale European Competition

Preparations are in full swing in Ballinahown as the picturesque village prepares to participate in the Entente Florale Europe competition. Westmeath County Council is supporting the initiative and has been working in partnership with the community to support the delivery of many long-term projects outlined in a 2030 Vision Document for the village.

The Entente Florale competition aims to promote the sustainable development of European towns, cities and villages and enhance the quality of life of their citizens. Ballinahown is one of 11 participants from across Europe taking part in the awards scheme this year and was chosen to represent Ireland due to its high levels of achievement in recent Tidy Towns national competitions. An international jury for Entente Florale will visit Ballinahown on Saturday, July 13th with the awards presentation to take place in the city of Szekesfehérvár, Hungary, on September 7th.
