On Wednesday 17 July 2019, An Taisce revealed the parks and green spaces that have been awarded a prestigious Green Flag Award for 2019.
Mullingar Town Park again received a Green Flag Award for its horticultural standards, cleanliness, sustainability, and community involvement.
The Green Flag Award for Parks is awarded for meeting exceedingly tough environmental standards in green space management and excellence of visitor attractions, and is recognised throughout the world.
The 2019 awards were available to public town parks, country parks, gardens, cemeteries, and green spaces from across the whole country.
From among 17 countries whose parks met the standard this year, more Green Flag Awards were secured by Irish Parks and Gardens than by any country, other than the UK where the scheme originated in 1996.
