TRIM TIDY TOWNS PROGRAMME
On this evening's programme we have Ireland's tidiest town in focus. We are in Trim in County Meath to celebrate the towns winning ways in the Super Valu Tidy towns competition. We meet the volunteers and see the work carried out over the years and we join the celebrations as President Higgins comes to Trim to unveil the plaque to mark the towns winning this prestigious overall winner award.
TIDY TOWNS/REPORT MARIAN MALONE
In the months since the win, Trim has benefited from that victory with lots of people coming to visit. It's been a busy year and with the President’s visit the last few days have been even busier for the Tidy Towns volunteers. Over the last few days our reporter Marian Malone has been finding out about Trims winning ways and the preparations for the President visit.
FRIDAY 9TH JUNE
PRESENTER ANNE CASSIN
We feature two family pubs with literary connections. The Palace Bar in Dublin reaches the grand age of 200 and we visit John B Keane’s pub in Listowel in County Kerry.
