The Ennis Tidy Towns committee is always looking for volunteers to help Ennis to become Ireland’s most attractive town. We have planned community activities and would like to encourage everyone to participate.

Volunteering will give you the opportunity to get out and about and feel get-involvedinvolved in the community, to make new friends and to have a say in how Ennis should look.

To get involved, simply contact us using the details in the Contact Us page.


Ennis Tidy Towns would not be possible without the involvement and support of our many partners. These invaluable relationships contribute to the development of Ennis in many ways – culturally, aesthetically and economically. We are indebted to them.

sm-ennis-town-councilOur committee has developed a strong partnership with the Ennis Town Council. Their support takes many forms. Practical support is always available throughout the year from gardening, administrative to street cleaning work. Co-operation and support is always forthcoming in terms of action issues brought to the town councils attention, for example – sites which need to be deemed derelict or the provision of additional cleaning services. In monetary terms, the Tidy Towns Committee receives very generous monetary support from the Ennis Town Council which goes a long way to support our various activities.
sm-clare-cocoThe partnership with Clare County Council opens up many avenues of contacts with the various sections of the County Council. Particularly with the Cultural Services for example Library, Arts and Museum. An example of this partnership is the work being done by Artist in Residence, Eleanor Feely in St. Josephs Geriatric hospital where she has developed a special garden involving the participation of patients, staff and the local community. She also gives her assistance to the committee when required. It should also be pointed out that the Town Council also makes an annual contribution to the Ennis Sculpture Initiative. To date this initiative has resulted in twenty pieces of public art throughout Ennis.
sm-ennis-chamberEnnis Chamber of Commerce provide meeting facilities, secretarial and administration services and is the main contact point for the Ennis Tidy Towns initiative.

Ennis Chamber operates a SOLAS CE project which provides vital support services to the Tidy Towns initiative and employs a number of people in community based projects to enhance the town. The Chamber also encofas-logourages their business members to support the various Ennis Tidy Towns initiatives. The local business community contribute generously to our annual fundraising appeal every year which gives us the scope to develop additional projects and increase awareness.

sm-communityLocal community groups, Residential Associations and organisations cooperate and contribute substantially to the success of the town through the organisation and running of ‘clean-up’ mornings throughout the year.The level of civic pride and support prevalent in the town is an immeasurable but essential ingredient for success. Without the support of the community, the level of development achieved would not have been possible. We hope that this community spirit will continue to be built on every year.
sm-schoolsThe important role that schools play in raising awareness of environmental issues is recognised by the Ennis Tidy Towns Committee. Four Ennis Schools and one secondary school have achieved at least one ” Green Flag ” as part of the Green Schools programme. The aim of Green-Schools is to increase students’ and participant awareness of environmental issues through classroom studies and to transfer this knowledge into positive environmental action in the school and also in the wider community. Schools that have successfully completed all the elements of the programme are awarded the ‘Green-Flag’. This award has now become a well-recognised Eco-Label. The award has to be renewed every two years. Ennis Town Council organise an annual Best Kept School Competition.


Like any voluntary organisation we are greatly dependant on our sponsors contributions. While we receive financial support from Ennis Town Council and Clare County Council we still require additional funds to allow us develop and maintain additional projects.

Ennis Tidy Towns would like to thank all those who have contributed financially through the years. This funding has provided us with the opportunity to develop a number of projects most notably our magnificent Sculpture Trail. It is evident that this initiative has greatly enhanced our town for all to enjoy and we look forward with your help to bring additional sculptures in the near future.

Funds received are channeled into the following projects:

  • Sculpture Trail
  • Drumcliff Graveyard
  • Gum Litter Project
  • Teen Litter Busters Project
  • Additional Flower Planters
  • Litter Awareness Projects
  • School Projects
  • Participation Competitions
  • Clean Up initiatives
  • Promotional material

We all benefit from a clean and well presented town.
