Tallaght ranked Dublin's cleanest area in national litter survey

By Aideen O'Flaherty

TALLAGHT was listed as the cleanest area of Dublin in the latest national litter survey by Irish Businesses Against Litter (IBAL) – marking a significant improvement from when the suburb was described as a “litter blackspot” in the same survey in 2010.

Sean Walsh Park and the surrounding areas also received high praise from the people who carried out the survey, with the park being described as “a top-ranking site”, while the areas around Tallaght Village, Tallaght Stadium and the bring banks at The Square and Sean Walsh Park were recorded as being “very clean”.

Tallaght came 13th out of 40 places nationally that were assessed as part of the survey, and was listed as being cleaner than European norms.

This shows a marked improvement on Tallaght’s ranking in IBAL’s October 2018 litter survey, where Tallaght was listed as 24th out of 40 places nationally.

Representatives from An Taisce monitored the surveyed towns independently and in accordance with international grading standards as part of the IBAL Anti-Litter League.
