Green Flags All Round For Fingal
With the celebrations for its 3 blue flag beaches barely over, Fingal County Council was delighted to retain six Green Flags in this year’s Green Flag Awards which were announced last week, Wednesday 14th of September 2022.
Award each year by An Taisce Environmental Education, the Green Flag is an acknowledgement of Ireland’s best public parks and gardens. More importantly, Green Flag Awards are only awarded for exceeding tough environmental standards in green space management, and excellence of visitor attractions – the Green Flag Award Scheme is the mark of a quality park or green space and is recognised throughout the world.
Amongst them were six Fingal County Council parks and gardens.
- Millennium Park, Blanchardstown
- Santry Demesne, Santry
- Newbridge House and Farm, Donabate
- Catherine’s Park, Lucan
- Malahide Demesne, Malahide
- Ardgillan Demesne, Balbriggan
Praising their own achievements, Mayor of Fingal, Cllr Howard Mahony said “We are extremely proud to receive six Green Flags for our beautiful parks. It is a testament to the efforts of all our parks staff, volunteer groups and the community involvements, who have put in the hard work and dedication to reach such high standards required by the Green Flag criteria.”
